Bone Fist is a weapon in Dark Souls 2.

 

Bone that is bound to the fist. Used to enhance hand-to-hand combat.

Salvaged from a malformed creature.

Enables one to fight with inhuman strength, as if the very spirit of the bone's malicious owner had taken control. 

Acquired From

  • DLC Crown of the Ivory King.
  • Behind a door which is found through a side passage after you go through the door at the back of the room full of boxes (To the left of the door to the Abandoned Dwelling Bonfire). This door has 4 unlit fire stands which must be lit to open. To light these you must beat The King's Pet and talk to the Princess. Once through the door there is a wall you can activate on the immediate left (press A), follow that and it is on a body.
  • To replicate this item via bonfire ascetic one has to use the Outer Wall bonfire.
  • Frozen Reindeers drops these when summoned. Rare drop.

 

Hints and Tips:

  • Upgraded with twinkling titanite to +5
  • When in power stance (requires 45 Dex and 22 Str) use the heavy attack to shoot a projectile, deals high damage and knocks down small humanoid enemies, extremely useful for PvP usage.
  • Can be powerstanced with any fist weapons or barehand, and the powerstance strong attack damage is affected only by the right weapon, although the powerstance strong attack can be used only when Bone Fist is equipped on the right hand.
  • Powerstance strong attack does not deplete the durability of Vanquisher's Seal ring,
  • At 40 40 it has 14+189(203) without enchantment and 20+203(223) for Bone Fist+5 , so the enchantment is pointless. For comparison Caestus +10 has 90+182(272) damage.
  • Compared to the other fist weapons the Bone fist is notably slower, the one handed strong attack is probably the only fast attack this weapon has with its quick low sweep to forced back punch, the running attack is a running flying kick that can send players and human sized enemies flying, however caution is warranted when you are facing a ledge as you can jump kick to your death, also there is a slight delay before you can move freely after and leaves open a back stab.The power stance strong attack takes 5 durability per Hadouken, the Bracing Knuckle Ring +2 does NOT drop the durability cost.
  • Your attack frames will give you immense poise (similar to swinging large weapons) that is incredibly hard to break and allows you to combo down opponents who try to to get into a literal fist fight with you.
  • Interesting Fact : the Bone Fist is actually still valuable even broken. The scaling is so high that it is still able to decent damage because it only loses the base damage when broken (which is 20 at +5)
  • The Bone Fist's strong attack resembles how Andre of Astora from the previous game fights, if the player aggros him.

      Greatest weapon to exist , while difficult to master, it is a destroyer, albeit slow its ability to stun lock is a trade, but it's style is it's gold, this fist can be used with other weapons as part of a combo, It goes smooth with a katana's one handed thrust such as like sir alonne's blade, other weapons too goes smooth, but with a caestus it can be used to offset the slowness if you have not mastered it.

          First time playing the DLCs (I know, I know I'm late), I just found this, tried it on some soldier, and I honestly think something's wrong here. It's damage is....high. I mean, very high

            Should be noted that the Poise Damage that these put out is insane. They may do less damage than the Caestus, but they'll stagger almost any staggerable enemy from a single R1 attack, especially if you have the Stone Ring equipped.

              Sure the powerstance shoot hadouken but try this thing 2handed. Every punch hits like a truck. Always loved the idea of 2handing firstweapon. It like good old star trek cpt Kirk punches. Also the roll attack is a shoruyoken or mario type jump punch that lauches the enemy hehe. This weapon is so good and does massive poise dmg. With a stonering youll stagger things for days and the moveset is varied as heck, especially since 2handing unlocks a bunch you can switch between when otherwise powerstancing. And they weigh less than most rings; i never go without a vouple on appropriate builds.

                  This thing rekindled my love for Dark Souls 2. Like, look at it. When I first started Dark Souls and thought that Raw infusion and two-handed UGS was the only way to go because big big number make tiny monkey brain squirt happy chemical, I would've scoffed at this thing. Now that I know these games so well, these are now my favorite weapon in the series. I wish they were in Dark Souls 3 as well. This thing is such a blast to play around with and it has so much versatility that I'd take this over a UGS any day.

                      Hmm. What should I choose? A max-upgraded warpick that two-shots almost anything, a max-upgraded lance that one-shots everything, or the bone fist? ..I think I'll use the bone fist.
