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.
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
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

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.
