Daggers are a weapon type in Dark Souls.

Overview[]

Daggers are renowned for their speed and precision, and this trait is carried over perfectly in Dark Souls. Most daggers are capable of both slashing and thrusting attacks, which makes them very versatile and useful against a number of enemies. Their speed means they are excellent at interrupting an opponent’s attack for easy critical hits, and once an attack connects, successive strikes are nearly always guaranteed. This is made even more deadly by the fact that Daggers also have an extremely high critical hit damage modifier, which allows them to do more damage with critical hits than many stronger weapons.

The quick strikes and small attack motion also make them perfect weapons to use in confined spaces like narrow tunnels or small buildings. Daggers also have the unique ability of being able to parry when equipped in the left-hand, which allows you to dual wield weapons and still be able to counter enemy attacks.
