Summon Range Calculator for Dark Souls and Dark Souls Remastered helps players find their matchmaking ranges. Calculations are based on the information available on the Online page, compiled by players during the original launch of the game. Please note that the results below are slightly rounded, and available from the perspective of the person using the item. You may see a difference of + - 1 level if you are not the person using the item.

  • There are many nuances to the game's multiplayer, so refer to Covenants for specific mechanics regarding each of the available factions.
  • There is no cross-platform play. You cannot play with someone on PS4 if you are on PC, etc.
  • Owners of the original game do not share online sessions with the Remastered version (on any platform)
  • Dark Souls Remastered implemented Weapon Matchmaking - please see further below for details on how this works
    • Armor upgrades have no effect on matchmaking
  • Dark Souls Remastered implemented Passwords. Using a password bypasses any level or weapon limitations. The Fextralife community uses the password "fextra"
  • Dark Souls Remastered: Blue Eye Orb now has the same summon range as the Red Eye Orb. Additionally, the Dragon Eye and White Sign Soapstone use the level of the summoner, not the summonee in calculating ranges.

Dark Souls Remastered Level Ranges

Level ranges have been changed in Dark Souls Remastered, as researched by PrimeraEspada91, Waxmoth, Illusorywall. Compiled by jakemf5398.

2000 White Sign Soapstone2087 Eye of Death2011 Dragon Eye, & 2001Red Sign Soapstone

These four items use the standard co-op range. Players can be paired with others who are relatively near their level, using what is commonly referred to as the "10 + 10%" calculation. The range is calculated from the host's perspective.

x +/- (10 + 0.1x)

Level 50 can summon: 35 - 65
Level 100 can summon: 80 - 120

2002 Red Eye OrbItem Cracked Red Eye Orb icon Cracked Red Eye Orb, & Blue Eye Orb Blue Eye Orb

These items have a lopsided invasion range, allowing an invader to invade higher than they can lower. The range is calculated from the invader's perspective.

x - 0.1x (lower level limit)
x + (20 + 0.1x) (upper level limit)

Level 50 can invade: 45 - 75
Level 100 can invade: 90 - 130

4041 Cat Covenant Ring4040 Darkmoon Blade Covenant Ring

These items have a lopsided invasion range. Similar to the other invasion items, but with a wider range and they are instead calculated from the host's perspective.

x - (20 + 0.2x) (lower level limit)
x + 0.1x (upper level limit)

Level 50 can be invaded by: 20 - 55
Level 100 can be invaded by: 60 - 110


Dark Souls Remastered Weapon Matchmaking

Simply progressing your game and picking up certain weapons will – without your knowledge – inflate your “summoning tier”. Some examples of the weapons are: Black Knight weapons, unique shields (upgraded with twinkling), unique weapons from tail cuts like Moonlight sword. Since DS:RE follows the DS3 rules, once these items are in your inventory, dropping, depositing, giving away still leaves a memory on that character. You can consider Unique Weapons by their upgrades.

      In my opinion invasion range both lower cap but especially upper cap should be wider.

      That's because after reaching 40-50 in your primary stats leveling futher does not make you much stronger. So for example lvl 200 with maxed gear isn't much stronger than lvl 150 with maxed gear. For 300 and 200 it's even less difference. So if you want to get your primary stats to 99 you will find no one to co-op, invade or be invaded even if someone with their stats around 50 could still easily beat you.

        weapon table is incorrect, I made a character lvl 25 with +0 divine weapons to be invaded by people who are 0-11 weapons lvl 5-28 ish and I don’t get invaded by anyone with no weapon upgrades. Needs more testing. But I can’t get invaded on character that has just made weapons divine and not upgraded past base. Chart says can interact with 0-11

          برای اینکه شما بتوانید به عنوان Phantom به دنیای دوستتان وارد شوید و به او کمک کنید یا برعکس، باید یکسری کار داخل بازی انجام دهید :

          1- به قسمت Network settings رفته سپس در قسمت matchmaking password ، رمزعبوری انتخاب کنید و آن را به دوستتان دهید تا وارد کند.

          2- به دست آوردن White Sign Soapstone :
          بعد از کشتن Taurus Demon و صحبت کردن با Solaire of Astora درصورتی که به هر 2 سوال او پاسخyes بدهید این Item را به دست می‌آورید.
          (شخصی که میخواهد به دنیای دوستش به عنوان Phantom وارد شود باید این Item را داشته باشد و آن را USE کند)

          3-Humanity Restored :
          باید Item خاصی به نام Humanity را به دست آورید و آن را در Inventory تان USEکنید سپس در یکBonfire رفته و گزینه Hollowing Reverse را انتخاب کنید.
          (توجه داشته باشید که :
          * این Item به راحتی به دست نمی‌آید و در استفاده از آن دقت کنید.
          * هر دو بازیکن یعنی هم شما و هم دوستتان باید این کار را انجام بدید.
          * اگر کشته شوید، باید دوباره باید از این Item استفاده کنید تا Humanity Restored تان را به دست آورید.)

          4- به دست آوردن Dried Finger :
          این Item را میتوانید از Undead Merchant خریداری کنید که در Undead Burg هست.
          (شخصی که میخواهد به دنیای دوستش به عنوان Phantom وارد شود باید این Item را داشته باشد و
          آن را بعد ازUSE کردن White Sign Soapstone ، USE کند)

          *بعد از انجام این مراحل، حدود 1 دقیقه صبر کنید تا علامت ظاهر شود.

          *مناطقی که Boss آن را شکست داده اید به احتمال زیاد علامت ظاهر نمی شود.
          (یعنی نمی توانید آنجا را به صورت CO-OP انجام دهید)

          * برای CO-OPبازی کردنDark Souls Remastered درPS4 و PS5 ، 2 مورد دیگر نیاز است :

          1- داشتن اتصال اینترنتی با NAT Type 2 یا 1 است.
          (معمولا اینترنت گوشی های موبایل 4G ، NAT Type2 است)

          2- داشتن اشتراک پلی استیشن پلاس

              It says picking up a unique weapon puts you in a different tier, but a 0 unique weapon allows the 0-11 summon range, so unless you upgrade it won't affect you if you pick it up.

                Can people confirm that there is no way to rid the game of the memory of upgrading a weapon too much? I stupidly ugraded crest shield to +4 and now can't get invasions or co-op in Undead parish at all, even though i'm sl15

                  me and my friend are doing a coop playthrough and something broke. we are no longer able to summon each other even with passwords set up.
                  he has a +10 zweihander and +12 pyro flame and is level 48
                  i have a +3 silver knight straight sword and am level 57

                  but we have tried multiple areas where we have yet to kill the bosses. New Londo ruin, Demon Ruins, and Catacombs but despite the bosses of those areas still being alive and even both of us being human and having a password set up we are unable to see the others summon sign at all

                    The Pyromancy Flame counts as a regular weapon and affects online matchmaking. The Ascended Pyromancy Flame and all upgrades up to +5 are treated the same as a normal +15 Pyromancy Flame.

                      I am early in the game, level 29, with a Claymore +5 as my strongest weapon, and I was invaded outside the Capra Demon fog by a character wearing a dragon head and spewing out pyromancies and sorceries that clearly belong to much higher levels than mine. How is this weapon/level matching by any standard? There was a system message in brown saying "Weapon matching failed" or words to that effect: was it a system glitch or did the player use a hack? There's no defense against players like these.

                        I'm very early in the game, at level 30 with only a Claymore +5, and outside the Capra Demon's fog I was invaded by a character with a dragon head and pyromancies I've never seen (I have completed the game previously). I'm pretty sure I got spewed with a yellow poison (I'd love to know the name of that so I could buy it). I'm pretty sure there was dragon breath in there as well. How can that be considered weapon/level matching? A warning sign did appear prior to this invasion, reading "Weapon matching failed". Was this player using some form of hack to get around the weapon matching system? Or was it just a 'whoops, tough luck, pull the plug if you can" glitch in the game?

                                      Recently, I invaded a grave lord servant in Undead Burg (lvl 15 unupgraded weapons) expecting to find some whacky low lvl dsr pvp. Instead, the dude had a **** ton of health and one shot me with a lightning blacksmith hammer. I’m not exactly new to the game, I’ve been playing for a year. But I’m absolutely confused as to how the **** this happened. Why can this dude invade with upgraded weapons and over 30 vigor at such a low lvl. This game’s matchmaking is absolute ass

                                        I can make a level one with Lighting 5+ BattleAxe, Lighting 5+ light crossbow, 15+ armor, Stone armor, Haval armor, and even silver knight armor as well as being a soul level ONE and collected majority of the rings. Maxed out Pryo glove almost all spells maxed out elemental bolts for my crossbow 4+ flask overkill for a level one. Also getting the red eyed orb is easier now I also was bored and got the different elemant variants Divine BattleAxe 4+ Xbow divine 4+, Enchanted battleAxe 4+, Enchanted Xbox 4+, Fire 4+ BattleAxe, Xbox 4+ Fire. Any item you could buy from a merchant i had a high stock of. 72 days of gameplay 300+ invasions and NOTE I NEVER WAS ABLE to invade players twice and some I wanted to when even all that didn't help me win against some smarter hosts. Got destroyed by a NG++++ Solair and the Golden crown boy legit i cried when i lost. My point in a short view is this weapon tier system to hinder summons and invasions is sad and pathetic its a poor excuse to lock out players who challange themsevles in trying to become a better oppenent against co-op players.

                                          My character A is on weapon upgrade 5. If I take my character B who has created Queelags Furrysword without upgrading it and trade it over through a friend to character A will he still be on weapon upgrade 5? According to the list unupgraded "unique weapons" are on the weapon upgrade 5 level which is absolutely the case for twinkling titanite. But since you normally can't acquire Queelags Furrysword without bumping your weapon upgrade level to 10, I am unsure if an unupgraded boss soul weapon which uses demon titanite also counts as weapon upgrade 5. Anyone know anything about this?

Git Gud.

                                              +11 weapon leve is the most optimal weapon level for low to mid level builds (SL50 or lower). It matches from level 5-15 weapons and there is a high chance that players have gotten a unique weapon (like the drake or gravelord sword).

                                                I play on the switch and have created SL10/+5 weapon, 25/+10 weapon, 40/+11 weapon, 50/+15 weapon and 60/+15 weapon invasion builds. Here's what I've noticed.

                                                I gravelord at Undeadburg and invade in the Catacombs (gotta keep the Giant Dad wanna be's population under control) with the SL10 and can get steady invasions with occasional downtime. I invade can invade all areas up to Anor Londo with the SL25 and also the Catacombs and find frequent invasions. The SL40 gets invasions from The Depths onward but Sen's and Anor Londo are the hottest spots. The SL50 gets invasions from Sen's onward but Painted World and Anor Londo are best. The SL60 gets the least invasions but can invade from Anor Londo onward. I've found that the Catacombs is a place you can find all soul levels to invade and it's really fun. For the higher levels, Demon Ruins is great after you enable both shortcuts (Chaos Servant and Demon Fire Sage) because there are three different areas you can check quickly (area before Centipede Demon, Demon Ruins bonfire area, area before Bed of Chaos). Of course there is always Dark Root Forest but ganks camp at the invasion spot and if you invade in the garden area you'll likely spend a lot of time just trying to find the person. If you go above SL60 you'll likely have the best chances at the Township.

                                                  So.... easy nutshell version is

                                                  White/red soapstones death/dragon eye are +/- 10 levels

                                                  Blue/res orbs better for low level pvp cause they have a bigger range for invading higher level players

                                                  Cat and darkmoon is better for high level pvp cause they have a bugger range if invading lower level players

                                                  While weapon matchmaking is also factored in and it’s best to never fully upgrade you gear to +15 or +5 just to have as big as a range possible when searching for pvp.

                                                    Hah! No more easy, one-shot kills for you twinks!

                                                    And now for real. Remaster changes are very good. Why? Because most PvP builds focuses on getting optimal player-killer machine with lowest soul level possible. So invader is usually much stronger than invaded casual PvE player even if his soul level is lower. There's also another fact - invader has help from monsters and the host can be weakended by previous fights, making him even easier target. What those changes do? Increases invader level and forces him to invade stronger targets. This way fights are more balanced.

                                                    You want quality PvP? Use Red Soapstone and fight fair. Oh you can't because only thing you can do is ganking weaker hosts? I'm so sorry but that's lame you know...

All of these restrictions and what was the end result? Griefers can still do their thing and one shot new players with magic instead of weapons. Going through mid game areas with +5 equipment is tedious and all I actually want are certain weapons not materials to upgrade them.

                                                              • Anonymous

                                                                So if there is a password being used for co-op the weapon adjusting for summons won't take effect? I just wanna make sure I'm understanding this correctly as I'm going to be helping a first time player in the near future.

                                                                • Anonymous

                                                                  If you wish to keep a character at +5 for low level pvp but need to progress far into the game for desired equipment you can still kill the mimics that drop infused weapons (+10) and reload the game so the loot permanently disappears

                                                                  • Anonymous

(EU servers btw)

                                                                    • Anonymous

                                                                      People hate the weapon level addition but really the worse thing they did was adjust all of the level ranges to be identical to DS3. Things like the upper limit on darkwraith invasions and no more downward invasions for darkmoons sucked the life out of the game. I’m baffled that people care more about weapon matchmaking than this. I know it’s awful because of the non linear nature of the game compared to the others but they DID somewhat reduce extreme twinking which is objectively good. There was no need to adjust the soul level matchmaking as the original Dark Souls did just fine with that for 7 damn years. Upgrades and damage were the only thing that needed work.

                                                                      • Anonymous

I have a SL 20 build that hasn't gone over tier 5 of weapon upgrades and still managed to beat the four kings. Now I can invade low levels at the lower undead burg and undead parish, the forest, the sunlight altar, the depths, blightown. Basically f*cking everywhere in the early game except the taurus demon and even there I once found a guy. Im still overpowered asf because of my fully upgraded armor and raw weaponry and I don't even use magic. Its when you do **** like this that you find out how f*cking populated the remaster is. Oh and Im on sexbox btw. Im getting summoned all the time and I can invade at any moment that I want. Whenever I get a murderboner I just pop a cracked red ord and get satisfaction immediately. I usually alternate between invading and summoning one at a time. I can't even begin to tell you how many funny interactions I've had with both n00bs and seasoned players. I sometimes give them fully upgraded late game armor, weapons, twinkling titanite or humanity or whatever. If you're bored of remaster and wanna do something new then I challange you to do a SL 20 weapn tier 5 build for invading. I aint gonna tell you how to beat the four kings you figure that **** out yourself

                                                                        • Anonymous

                                                                          • Anonymous

                                                                            • Anonymous

                                                                              If you can't kill a newbie with a +5 or even worse, a black knight weapon, kalameet's tail, gravelord's sword, please, stop whining. You're sad that you can't invade a sl 20 who just started playing the game in the burg with a fully upgraded chaos weapon? C'mon, grow up.

                                                                              • Anonymous

My level 50 sorcerer can switch between normal mode and twink mode due to keeping my melee weapons and shield at the + 10 bracket. I get an equal amount of enjoyment from fighting a solo host with evenly matched weapons while they progress through the game and using over powered magic against a group of co operators.

                                                                                • Anonymous

I know it's cruel but invading a newbie with fully upgraded Black Knight Set, casting toxic mist, and watching them frantically hit me while I stood there and watched them perish was truly amazing...

                                                                                      • Anonymous

Any tips in solving this issue? The boss of the area is alive as well.

                                                                                              • Anonymous

Its a garbage mechanic that adds a stupid second layer of matchmaking. 10+10% unless you picked up some weapons or upgraded them in your playthrough, regardless of even being able to use said weapon. Sad bs just screwing the experience.

                                                                                                  • Here's a good tip for what weapon level by zone to maximize online play. Grind up your favorite weapons to +5 ASAP. Get your favorite armor to +3 ASAP. Pyromancy 1-15 affects weapon scaling like regular titanite scaling. Ascended flame is +15 WL at any strenght. Only upgrade Pyromancy to +5 ASAP and equip the smallest fireball for slime grinding the depths (or bombs). Don't touch any other upgrade material other then titanite shards. Picking up special or unique weapons or shields won't hurt your 0 to +5 range. DONT UPGRADE DRAGON WEAPONS. After clearing the Depths and resuppling for Blight town you can upgrade normal weapons to +7 fire/magic/divine. Before entering Sen's fortress get your favorite weapon up to +10, +2 twinkling, +2 dragon, +2 demon +5 green shard. This allows as low as +4 up +15 maxed WL players to interact with you. All upgrades past this point cut off more and more like level players for co-op. The remaining areas only give or drop +10 weapons tops as well so don't wory about them.

                                                                                                    • Anonymous

It would be a shame if it did because I love looking like a thumb helping people against gargoyles

For example someone on their first playthrough can not summon someone in NG+, and vice versa
