Knight's Honor is an achievement or trophy that is gained by collecting various unique weapons throughout Dark Souls. All weapons must be collected on a single character.

Most weapons can be collected in a single playthrough, but weapons crafted from boss souls can only be crafted once per playthrough. Most boss souls offer the option to create two different weapons, but the Soul of Sif can be used to create three different weapons, thus New Game+2 (a third playthrough) would be required to craft all possible variants. Weapons from the DLC Artorias of the Abyss are not required for this achievement/trophy.

The following is a list of weapons and their respective locations:

Boss Soul Weapons[]

This list is roughly based on the order that the boss is encountered. Some important notes:

Weapon Soul Base Weapon
Crystal Ring Shield Soul of the Moonlight Butterfly Shield
Moonlight Butterfly Horn Spear or Thrusting Sword
Chaos Blade Soul of Quelaag Katana
Quelaag's Furysword Curved Sword
Greatsword of Artorias Soul of Sif Broken Straight Sword or Straight Sword Hilt
Greatsword of Artorias (Cursed) Dagger, Greatsword, or Straight Sword
Greatshield of Artorias Shield
Dragon Bone Fist Core of an Iron Golem Caestus or Claw
Golem Axe Axe
Lifehunt Scythe Soul of Priscilla Halberd or Whip
Dragonslayer Spear Soul of Ornstein Spear or Thrusting Sword
Smough's Hammer Soul of Smough Hammer or Great Hammer
Darkmoon Bow Soul of Gwyndolin Bow
Tin Darkmoon Catalyst Catalyst
Great Lord Greatsword Soul of Gwyn, Lord of Cinder Dagger, Greatsword, or Straight Sword

Severed Tail Weapons[]

These weapons are obtained by cutting the tail of certain enemies. You may only get one chance at most of these weapons until the next playthrough, as the enemies do not appear again, with the exception of the Gargoyles and the Stone Dragon.

If a boss is about to die, and it seems unlikely the tail will be severed, quit the game and reload the save. This will spawn you outside the fog gate, giving you a chance to try again.

Weapon Enemy Location
Drake Sword Hellkite Dragon Undead Burg
Dragon King Greataxe Gaping Dragon Depths
Priscilla's Dagger Crossbreed Priscilla Painted World of Ariamis
Moonlight Greatsword Seath the Scaleless Crystal Cave
Gargoyle Tail Axe Bell Gargoyles Undead Parish
Dragon Greatsword Stone Dragon Ash Lake

Covenant Weapons[]

This weapon is granted upon joining its respective Covenant.

Weapon Covenant
Gravelord Sword Gravelord Servant
Dark Hand Darkwraith (Also drops from Darkwraith (enemy) in lower New Londo ruins)

Enemy Weapons[]

These weapons can only be obtained by defeating certain enemies throughout the game. Most weapons have a low drop rate, which means it may take several attempts for the enemy to drop the desired weapon.

Guaranteed Drops[]

The following weapons are guaranteed to drop, if the enemy is killed.

Weapon Enemy Location
Crescent Axe Patches Tomb of the Giants. Sold by Patches for 10,000 Souls.
Izalith Catalyst Daughter of Chaos Lost Izalith
Crest Shield Oscar, Knight of Astora Undead Asylum (return visit)

Black Knights[]

Black Knight weapons are only dropped by Black Knights who wield that weapon. Most knights in the game do not respawn, however the five Black Knights guarding the Kiln of the First Flame do. All four variants can be found here, making it a perfect location to obtain these weapons.

Weapon Location % Drop Rate
Black Knight Sword Undead Burg, Undead Asylum, and Kiln of the First Flame 20%
Black Knight Greatsword Undead Parish and Kiln of the First Flame 20%
Black Knight Greataxe The Catacombs and Kiln of the First Flame 20%

Black Knight Shield Any Black Knight 5%

Silver Knights[]

Silver Knight weapons are significantly rarer than Black Knight weapons, with drop rates at between 1 and 2 percent. Silver Knights can only be found in Anor Londo. Like the Black Knights, they only drop the weapons they wield in battle. Sword and spear wielding knights can be found in the various rooms within the main building.

Weapon Location % Drop Rate
Silver Knight Straight Sword Silver Knight behind the staircase to the left of the third bonfire. 2%
Silver Knight Spear Silver Knight in the room opposite the third bonfire. 2%
