The Broken Straight Sword is a straight sword in Dark Souls III.

In-Game Description

A straight sword with a broken blade.
A weapon with no exceptional qualities. Only a mad Hollow would choose to fight with this.
Skill: Stance
While in stance, use normal attack to break a foe's guard from below, and strong attack to slash upwards with a forward lunge. Only, neither move will appear very impressive with a broken sword.

Availability[]

Characteristics[]

As the description states, the Broken Straight Sword is far from ideal for use as a weapon, with the broken blade giving it poor reach, weak physical damage, and low poise reduction on hits.

It does, however, have low stamina consumption per swing, allowing more hits to be gotten off before stamina is depleted.

It is fully-buffable and can be infused.
