Top Ten Dark Souls 3 Weapons

MetalMan

The Top Ten

1 Hollowslayer Greatsword

The best weapon, light,strong and durable and obtained fairly early

The bosses are hard to overcome and defeat, but this weapon makes it easier. - TriggerTrashKid

Pros:
Double the damage against hollows, which is like 95% of the enemies in the game.
Good damage
Heavy attack is a thrust which is useful against larger foes.
Relatively fast attacks.

Not very heavy(for a greatsword)




Cons:


Uses a lot of stamina - MetalMan

2 Onikiri and Ubadachi

Pros:
Very fast attack speeds
Very hard to parry skill.
Deals bleed damage.
Good physical damage.

Not very durable - MetalMan

3 Artsor's Spear

Good reach
Lightweight
You gain 30HP every time you kill an enemy with this weapon.
Skill pierces many shields.

Does poison damage.




Cons:
Easily parried - MetalMan

4 Crucifix of the Mad King

Pros:
Decent Damage
One of the best skills in the game. The skill is a gamble of either AoE effect that knocks down your enemies, an effect similar to Perseverance, or creates a floating sphere that follows you until it stops to explode dealing a decent amount of dark damage. Warning the explosion of the floating sphere can damage you so make sure you're out of its blast range, or dodge good.
Good Poise Breaker
Does dark damage




Cons:
High stamina consumption
Heavy
Easily parried - MetalMan

The wind wheel skill doesn't cost any FP, unless you perform a light or heavy attack.
