The Broadsword is a melee weapon which swings slowly, but deals massive damage. The second and third hits of the combo will always deal a critical hit. The combo cannot be interrupted by walking, due to the long swing animation, but can be cancelled by rolling.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Although powerful, it’s one of the quicker heavy weapons, especially on the first swing.
  • Like the Giant Killer, to get the most out of this weapon, the player needs to land the last two swings, which may be troublesome due to the slow attack rate.
    • However, the main difference from Giant Killer is that Broadsword has less swings and is generally quite efficient against common mobs thanks to the guaranteed critical hits.
    • Regardless, it's a burst-damaging item. If given the chance it will land deep wounds on any enemy, but it's either hitting something or nothing.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The spite of this weapon is identical to that used by the Guardian Knight.
  • The third hit will always produce a loud metallic chime upon striking the ground.
  • The Broadsword is used by the Beheaded in the animated release trailer, amongst other weapons.
    • The trailer pokes fun at this weapon's cumbersomeness which is likely to cause the attacks to miss enemies and leave the player vulnerable.
