Giant Killer is a melee weapon which deals increased damage to Elites and Bosses. The base critical DPS (465) of Giant Killer is the second highest in the whole game, with the first highest damage dealing item being Cursed Sword. However, to truly take advantage from Giant Killer's very high damage, the player needs to land the third and fourth hit of the attack combo, which puts them at a risk of getting hit due to their slow wind-up. Therefore, using Giant Killer against normal enemies is relatively inefficient compared to other gear but extremely strong against Bosses and Elites.
