all of these weapons suck.

estoc 1hr2, broadsword/barbed straight sword 1hr1 and 1 or 2h r2, and longsword 1hr2 and 2hr2.

Arguably the best move set in the game.

Best moveset is any longspear+dwgr

Balder sword is good too, but its probably the most overrated weapon in the game lol

The Scythe's 1h R2 is a somewhat quick, horizontal/diagonal attack with range. It's probably the quickest move it has when attacking once and moving (fast rolling afterwards is great for keeping distance). The 2h R2 leaves you more exposed with 2 spinning horizontal strikes, and recovering from this takes twice as long as the 1h R2.

The great scythe's 1h R2s are pretty large, powerful horizontal sweeps. The Black Knight Greataxe's 1h R1s are essentially the same sort of attack, massive sweeping swings.

In terms of weapons like the drake sword, you'd likely be best off with Balder Side Sword's 1h R1s.

However, Partizan's R2s are pretty cool sweeping horizontal attacks, despite it being spear. Maybe worth a look.

Halberd, Gargoyle Halberd, Scythe, Lucerne all have sorta sweepy horizontal R2s.

Croak rush, OK? Weirder, almighty make out. ::)

Oh yeah, Large Club's 1h R2 is an awesome lunging sweep attack. The follow-up R2 is kinda bleh though unfortunately.

As already mentioned, Silver Knight Sword has a wicked horizontal swip. It also is holy, thus a great weapon for Catacombs. I leveled that spear to the max (as well as having good Dex stats) and never died once in Catacombs, the ONLY level thus far where I never died. I was literally 1 shotting 3 skeletons at a time with the R2/RT.

Yes, Great Scythe is freakin' awesome if you are a Dex character. It's swipe is right up there with Silver Knight Spear.

Everything mentioned above and Curved Greatswords.
It's not a C-GS but the Flamberge is tons-o-fun.


Flamberge is a very cool weapon, and I hardly ever see them in PVP. It was the first weapon I ever took to +15... be unique and use a Flamberge!
