Giant Killer is a melee weapon which deals increased damage to Elites and Bosses. The base critical dps (465) of Giant Killer is by far the highest in the whole game, with the second 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 him 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.
