The Dismounter

Let’s start the list off with a brilliant Curved Greatsword. The Dismounter is wielded by the Kaiden Mercenaries all around Limgrave. You can easily obtain a drop by killing the Kaiden Sellswords.

Besides looking insanely cool, the Dismounter is one of the longest-reaching curved greatswords in the game. This may be less impressive than the other curved greatswords but the impressive base damage and range might be worthwhile.

Twinned Knight Swords

This awesome Twinblade attacks insanely fast (Two-handed) and the Charged attack unleashes a combo of spinning slashes and cuts. What’s special about this weapon is that it Scales better with Strength than other Twinblades. This weapon is excellent against Slow and big foes. Imbue it with Poison or Bleed to overwhelm the enemy with heavy continuous damage.

Banished Knights Greatsword

This sword is dropped by the Banished Knights when killed and it’s one of the best-looking swords in the game, with intricate engravings and beautifully sharpened steel.

The speciality of the Banished Knight’s Greatsword is its Two-handed moveset. It’s a faster and more fluid moveset that looks extremely cool. It also offers the best base damage out of all the Greatswords in the game.

Lion Greatbow

The huge greatbow wielded by the Red Lion General, Starscourge Radahn himself, this ranged armament can fire extremely powerful unique arrows known as Radahn’s Spears. You might remember this weapon from the boss fight against Radahn because it was with this bow that Radahn launched arrows that seemed like literal missiles at you. The bow truly suits a renowned warrior like Radahn and if you’re worthy enough, you too. The detailing and looks of this greatbow really stand out from the others.


This Katana can be obtained by progressing Yura’s questline. What’s special about this Katana is its impressive length. The weapon attacks quite fast for its length and it builds up Bleed. Imbue this with Poison and you’ll be able to deliver both Bleed and Poison damage.
