Broken Straight Sword is a weapon in Dark Souls 2.

 

Straight Sword with its blade broken near in half. Nearly useless in battle, but "nearly useless" trumps "empty-handed.

Hints and Tips:

  • When Power Stanced with a Piercing Sword, it makes the moveset that of a straight sword powerstance while keeping the low stamina costs.
  • Despite the comparatively low attack power, the Broken Straight Sword has extremely low stamina drain. This can result in heavy damage, provided the target doesn't get pushed out the weapon's reach or manage to "poise out" of the combo.
  • Used with mundane in old patches of the game, current balancing make Raw a more viable infusion.
  • When elementally infused, the low weight and VERY low stat requirements make it useful for providing auxiliary elemental damage options for a variety of builds.

    • at the time of writing i have 500 hours ingame, and i just did a broken straight sword only run (no shield) this run was my most successful ever, game beaten faster than any other run.
      Crap scaling means use bare min stats and put lvls elsewhere, flyns ring is a must.
      powerstanced poison BSS was great agaisnt velstatd when he had too much armor and then switch to lightning when poisoned.

      • It's not broken because of the snapped and chipped blade. It's broken because of the slow stunlocked kills in PvP when you pair this with the Stone Ring.

          This thing really does good on a strength build with little to no dexterity, while wearing RoB, and maybe with Flynn's as well. Why do I say this? Well, between the fast speed, low stamina consumption, and low requirements, and ease of attaining copies to balance out the low durability issue... It proves itself a surprisingly useful addition to an undead's arsenal. I've also had it come in handy on my sorcerer near the start of the game, and I also hear that it does great for mundane and poison builds, so... What is not to love about this supposedly "nearly useless" weapon? <3

              I cannot edit the page but it looks like a typo in the description: ..."nearly useless" trumps "empty-handed. Corrected: ..."nearly useless" trumps "empty-handed". Just noticed it and thought it was worth mentioning if anyone occasionally. sweeps through the wiki to correct minor problems with pages
