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

In-Game Description

Straight sword bestowed upon the Outrider Knights of the Boreal Valley. This weapon is enshrouded in frost, and causes frostbite.
Every Outrider Knight one day devolves into a beast, constantly hounded by Pontiff Sulyvahn's black eyes.
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.


Found in the Undead Settlement. Guaranteed drop from the Boreal Outrider Knight guarding the entrance to the Road of Sacrifices.


The Irithyll Straight Sword is one of the four weapons (three in the base game) that are capable of inflicting Frostbite status without the use of skills, which hinders an enemy's stamina recovery, inflicts some direct damage to their health, and lowers their damage absorption by 20% for a short duration.

However, it has unremarkable stat scaling and rather low base damage for a weapon that upgrades with Twinkling Titanite. Its moveset is identical to that of the Long Sword, but with noticeably longer reach.
