7. Bloodlust

Bloodlust is a short sword that is obtainable at Fitzroy’s Gorge. It has a decent damage output compared to other short swords, dealing both physical and fire damage on enemies hit while inflicting the burn and bleed status effects. Due to its rapid attack pattern, you can quickly apply these status effects on multiple enemies.

Once fully upgraded, this short sword boasts an A- scaling in Agility and Inferno. Its special ability allows you to regain a small percentage of your health for every enemy killed. This weapon is worth considering if you opt for a more hybrid build with Agility and Inferno.

6. Grinning Axe

The Grinning Axe is perfect for those with an Inferno build. This axe deals a mixed damage of physical, fire, and wither. Attacking enemies with this weapon will inflict them with the burn and ignite status effects. Although this is a late-game weapon, the strength of this axe proves it can still be worth using for your next playthrough.

One of the best features about this weapon is its S scaling with Inferno, which is one of a kind, as most of the similar weapons only scale with A. Pair this with a strong inferno build to set your enemies ablaze, and you will become a force reckoned with.

5. Harrower Dervla’s Crossbow

If you prefer a more ranged playstyle, the Harrower Dervla’s Crossbow would be perfect for ranged builds. This weapon fires three simultaneous bolts, dealing triple damage at a time. Although the crossbow has a separate base damage, the arrows you use will also play a crucial role in increasing the crossbow’s overall damage output.

You can obtain this crossbow by offering the Remembrance of the Unbroken Promise to Molhu. For a secondary weapon, the Harrower Dervla’s Crossbow can deal high damage from a distance and would be an excellent choice for a ranged weapon with precision.

4. Lightreaper Swords

Two versions of this same sword are the right and the left-hand Lightreaper swords. Like the Harrower Dervla’s Crossbow, you can only obtain the Lightreaper swords by handing over the Remembrance of the Lightreaper to Molhu after defeating the Colossal boss, the Lightreaper.

These quick and deadly blades have an A scaling in Agility and Inferno and excel at cutting through enemies in your path. The Lightreaper swords, when fully upgraded, will gain a special attack that releases a horizontal wave of fire that damages all enemies hit, dealing fire damage. However, this special attack will consume a Soulflay charge with each use.

3. Pieta’s Sword

Pieta’s Sword is made for those running a Radiance build. This impressive blade deals Holy damage and can inflict the Smite status if the meter is maxed. Like other boss weapons, Pieta’s Sword can only be obtained by giving the Remembrance of Pieta to Molhu. You can dual-wield this sword to amplify the Smite meter build-up and deal devastating Holy damage to enemies in your path.

2. The Iron Wayfarer’s Hammer
