    Weapon you hate?

    Post by WhatDoesThePendantDo? on Sat Dec 01, 2012 3:25 am

    Is there a weapon you simply cannot stand?

    I really do not like the Barbed Sword - clunky moveset, terrible range, and unimpressive damage. Only unique in that it is the sword in its class with a bleed effect, which honestly does nothing to redeem Kirk's barbed rod. 🇳🇴

    I hate fist weapons and whips. They are just worthless IMHO.

    I'm not sure if you're asking what weapons we hate to use, or fight against, or perhaps it is by design and aesthetic feelings?

    Well, for me...

    I hate to use most Str weapons, as they're too slow for my tastes and get me backstabbed a lot.

    I hate to fight against spears, of any kind. Polearms are fine, as they can't turtle.

    I hate Smough's Hammer's design, as it is unbelievably ugly.

    I meant use. But you can list other weapons you dislike for whatever other reason.

    I dislike daggers, only because of the horrible range. Well, they ARE daggers after all. I don't really have a weapon i hate. I like em all but some just aren't as useful as others.

    I hate the Zweihander, because there is a lot of left over animosity from my first playthroughs towards it.

    Can't stand the darksword. Every time I pick up that awesome looking hunk of steel I want to start slaying bosses and crushing hosts with it, but every time I'm left disappointed and ashamed. All it is is an overweight over hyped straight sword with a semi unique attack that is as straight forward as any other.

    I realize it's a viable weapon and in the right hands it can destroy however the same can be said for a buffed straight sword hilt and frankly that's way more badass to see in pvp.

    I don't hate the Rubber Chicken+5 but it's pretty useless against fire weapons because it melts.

    I don't like Priscilla's Dagger because it looks amazing but fails to perform up to my expectations of a normal dagger.

    I used to be great with the Darksword because i treat it as an axe rather than a straight sword because of it's weight and the feel of it. It certainly isn't a great weapon but i did really well with it. It was also the first weapon i fell in love with during my first few months of playing Dark Souls. If you can forgive it's awkward moveset, it's R2 attack can really surprise some dumb dumb invaders.

    Aw man, I love the Barbed SS. One of my favorite weapons right there.

    I don't think there's anything I hate really. There have been a few things in the past, like I didn't really like the pole arms for example, but I feel like once I give something a real chance I end up seeing its value. I actually really like them now.

    Wait, no I take it back. I don't like the BK weapons. I never have. I know they're not terrible weapons, but just something about them has never sat right with me. They're just too slow and heavy. I think there's always going to be a better choice, than any of them really. Although to be fair I still haven't really given the Ultra GS a chance, however I'm planning on remedying that pretty soon.

    BSS because there's no reason to get any other straight sword than this one.

    daggers, theyre useful for parrying on your left hand and to cancel backstabs but on you main hand they kinda suck. katanas, i find them boring as hell and the fact that everyone uses them just makes me hate them because i dont like fighting the same build over and over again.

    The Dark Sword is overweight. The Sunlight Straight sword has the exact same damage, but is 2 pounds lighter. However, I think the R2 attack of the Dark Sword looks really cool.

    Also, I don't like halbreds. I know they can be very lethal in the right hands, but they just don't work for me.

    I also don't like the claw's roll attack.

    The lucerne. It's shorter than the other halberds, its r1 i also slower than he other's, it has the same poise break, same damage (with a quality build) and the same r2s.
    There's really no reason to use it over the other halberds.

    I hate the Estoc. It always hits through my shield. I can't tell if that's not supposed to happen or not, though. Online players often kill me with it that way.

    Maybe it's elemental and your opponent is hitting one of your shield's weaknesses.

    their good for tight corridors where you can't swing horizontally. they also don't deflect off of shields as much as the poking halberds do. So i like lucernes more actually.
    but the one I hate is the gargoyle tail axe. it's just an axe with some weird special attack that is easy to parry and dodge. (though it does give good resistances, but might as well use the blood shield right?)

    The Demon's Great Hammer is pretty lame. You're given false expectations of a cool reward for managing to kill the Asylum Demon early on, and then you can't use it efficiently until a point where it only has 15 more AR than the otherwise superior Large Club?

    i hate how weak it is compared to the other clubs since it's so damn heavy. but its so cool looking and that's reason enough to use it.
