Zweihander is a Colossal Sword in Elden Ring. The Zweihander scales primarily with Strength and Dexterity, and is a versatile Weapon for heavy-weight combat. This weapon, the lightest of all colossal swords, is able to set a devastating tempo for an encounter through its flexible moveset. 

 

Just about the largest sword a mere man is capable of swinging. True to its name, it is designed to be wielded in both hands, but those of merely ordinary strength will still struggle to do so.

The long blade is heavy and sharp, sending foes reeling back with its broader strokes, while also capable of a devastating piercing thrust.

      It actually should be called "Zweihänder". "Zwei" = "two", "Hände(r)" = "hands". That would be correct German language.

        I assume it's for non-Str and "low invesment in damage stats (Int, Fai, Str, Dex) for some reason" builds.

        • Anonymous

          After 50 playthrough or so I think this is my favorite Colossal Weapon/Sword in Elden Ring for NG. It's just so versatile and so easy to play with. It doesn't require a lot of investment in stats like some STR/FA STR/INT DEX/INT weapons so it's ideal for NG.
          Sure there are other weapons with higher damage like Prelate Hammer + Lion Claw, but the Zwei is just so fun to play with. Strong without making the game boring.
          I've used bleed build prior nerf, samurai builds, powerstance twinblades, GUGS, Godslayer, Powerstance Rusted Anchor, Cragblade iron fists among many others. Can't believe this weapon that you just buy in early game can be so good.

          It's probably the lightest Colossal so you don't have to spend too much endurance points and can still have thick armor to trade hits. Range is insane, crouch poke is insane. I like the Determination ash of war on this weapon which gives 1.6X damage and cheaper than RKR on a low mind build.

          • Anonymous

            Still a great weapon throughout the whole playthrough. It's super versatile. So you can buff, change ash of war, element type ect to fit your needs. It's a good weapon to have by your side for any situation.

            • Lmao at all these comments saying the Zwei is bad, sure the Greatsword is better but that's because the Greatsword is absurd, not because the Zwei is bad. Zwei is still a fantastic option for builds that want to utilize incantations or sorceries because it weighs much less, while still having the crouch pokes that can true combo into Catch Flame/Carian Slicer. The points you save in Endurance and Strength can be put into Faith/Intelligence to boost the power of those spells, to the point where the AR difference between the Zwei and Greatsword is made up by having more scaling on your catalyst of choice. And if you are using a build that primarily uses Dexterity, and you want to swap to a UGS for moveset variety, then a Keen Zweihander will always outperform a Keen Greatsword due to the latter having much higher Strength and Endurance requirements.

                I really love this weapon
                Cons.
                Low damage
                Pros.
                Moveset (those pokes...)
                Long range
                Very light
                Low requirements
                Good speed
                Versatility
                You can get it early in the game, and it will carry you even in endgame

                  The closest I can get to Giantdad is fire Zwei, Tree or veteran armor without helm, turtle shell as grass crest, and wolf imp head as the father mask from DS1.

                  • Anonymous

                    While I still think hunk this sword is good, I think it would have been a whole lot better if it had the same light attacks as the godslayer’s greatsword. Would have made its low attack value compared to the others much more worthwhile for a very good moves set in combination with the pokes.

                    • Anonymous

                      I dont understand why people are saying this word is bad, moveset is the same as previous games, good range, good poise damage, having a poke for the r2 i like because doing thrust and slash damage adds versatility. I have found i am able to low level many bosses with this weapon because if you truly know how to use its range you can avoid damage quite well for melee and the low req make it perfect for any non strength build that wants a UG. It may not have a flashy gimmiky weapon art or op damage but it certainly has enough going for it to make strategic sense to use, its not so OP to the point of being a crutch like the blasphemous blade or many others but to say its bad is ridiculous, its perfectly good if you know what you are doing with it, if you are a strength build there are probably better options but for just about any other build it makes allot of sense

                        The phrase "Look at how they massacred my boy" has never been more appropriate until now, Fromsoft really got sick of Giantdad huh? Sick of him to the point that they nerfed the once-amazing Zweihander to the ground until it become nothing but a mediocre piece of garbage.

                        • Anonymous

                          I could forgive the poor damage output for it's class if it wasn't just as slow as every other ugs, while having the same crappy moveset as the others other than a heavy poke, the poke isn't even worth it since every other one has a poke crouch/rolling attack that is infinitely faster, stop being in denial you fools, Giantdad died and rotted away long ago, this mediocre shadow of the og zweihander confirms that

                                    This was already the best colossal sword for PvP, but post 1.07 it's even more so with the thrust R2 and tied for the best range in the weapon class with GUGS.

                                          For anyone curious, Heavy (STR) and Keen (DEX) infusions have the same scaling as each other. Keep in mind you get bonus STR scaling from 2-handing. This weapon is very good value on 55 Strength (Heavy) and you only get about 50 more AR by going up to 80 Strength. Even if you max out DEX as well and use a Quality infusion, you only get another 100 AR on top of that, definitely not worth all those levels.

                                              Try cold infused instead of fire MUCH BETTER and it will make a reversed giantdad(cold blood)still destroy casual though.

                                                  This thing is the nichest of niche. Its moveset and range is awesome so it's really fun to use, but man it's so easily beaten out by other options as far as power goes at almost every turn that you really gotta wonder how much that R2 poke is really worth.
                                                  The Greatsword is about better at almost everything. On my build by, only reshuffling offensive stats to meet usage and weight requirements while keeping VIG at 60 and staying within RL125, the only thing I've found this thing out-damages the Greatsword in is with Keen infusion. In Keen the Zwei can outdo the Greatsword, but a 2-handed Heavy Zwei out-damages a 2-handed Keen Zwei and then a Heavy Greatsword out-damages a Heavy Zwei and we're back to square 1. Only way Keen is worth it is if you (ironically given its name) one hand it and run an offstoc with it; its weight allows you to do that pretty comfortably and that gives you a lot of fun options to play with. That said again tho, a Lightning infusion is directly better than a Keen infusion for that as well, higher AR and the split-damage is beneficial given the generally poor Lightning resistance in PvP, and once again, you're back to just running a Lightning infused Greatsword instead. Really really gotta decide if that poke is worth it.

                                                  Only other niche I can think of for it is a Magic infusion on an INT spellblade build. Its light weight compared to Greatsword and Royal means you can run a strong staff with high INT without worrying about neutering your magic damage. The real competition to this now becomes the Iron Greatsword one class below it which on Magic infusion also outdoes the Zwei (oof), but the Zwei does have the advantage of how it plays just by nature of being a colossal, people like keeping their distance against colossals more than other weapons which you can punish with your magic, then poke or pancake em when they're forced to get in close (runs well with Gravitas too to catch them when they're in your space and abuse its range to hit em on the panic roll).
                                                  That's it. That's the only super niche I can imagine it actually excelling at over its other options. Everything else is literally just a game of poke vs power. I really wish it got a little higher AR, just a little bit, that wouldn't have ruined the exploration encouragement they set up for PvE but still would let you run this awesome weapon with its awesome moveset without lingering doubts. B scaling with Dex in Lightning infusion would've been super appreciated too...

                                                    Its sad how much this pales in comparison to the Dark Souls Zweihander, sure it's got low requirements for a colossal sword, is the only one that pokes other than the mediocre Troll Knight Sword, and is the lightest one, but it hits like a rolled up newspaper compared to the other colossal swords unless you're not a strength build or you just love it with all of your heart, it's not bad, but not good either, the only majorly good thing about it is that it has low requirements for it's class, otherwise you might as well ditch it for almost any other colossal sword one you have the minimum requirements for them, its really just a sad shadow compared to the og.

                                                          • Damage wise it's probably best to use this fire or lightning infused on dedicated dex or strength builds. Gets close to or slightly over 800 once you approach 80. Problem is it still gets out-damaged pretty heavily by anything other weapon in its class. Quality infused on a 55/55 build, its two handed AR is equal to the one handed AR of the Greatsword, and you see how that becomes problematic for long term physical viability. So the real use of this is magic infused on an intelligence build. The relatively low requirements mean that it's easier for a pure 80 int build to use this as opposed to any other colossal sword, and it provides a relatively good amount of damage while allowing you access to a weapon class normally out of range for that build. 780 AR for a minimum requirement 80 int magic Zwihander. Not game breaking, but it lets you use that sick moveset without heavy physical investment other colossal sword demand. Likely still better off investing in the points needed for the Royal Greatsword at that point though, 884 at minimum requirements and 60 int (lower int to compensate for the extra physical investment). So... man I wish this was slightly closer in damage to other colossal swords. The moveset and visuals are fantastic, it's just so majorly outclassed in terms of damage on pretty much any build. If it was just a bit higher in damage the moveset would make up for the damage difference.

                                                              this thing seriously needs a damage boost.... it gets outclassed by almost every greatsword for christ's sake. on some builds the AR between a claymore and zwei are little to nothing, but even in the builds where the zwei beats the claymore in terms of AR, it still get outclassed bc its heavier, slower, and requires more stat investment to wield, also the claymore a better thrust R2, and a follow up thrust after it.
                                                              i really wish i could use this on a cold or int build to put waves of darkness on it, but i just cant justify it.

When two-handing, the Zwei will get better damage from Heavy/Fire as opposed to Keen/Lightning all the way to 80 in their respective stats.

                                                                        • Anonymous

Meanwhile, my +20 Heavy Greatsword is at 720. 4 upgrades higher and still less damage. How can people not see a problem here? Thrust or no thrust this thing needs a damage boost.

                                                                          • Anonymous

The AR on the axe when infused as actually higher than Zwei, but the damage on mobs was 10-20pc higher on Zwei. So basically it punches above it's actual AR.

                                                                            • Anonymous

It's the only ultragreatsword that can reasonably be acquired and used before you even fight your first boss both in terms of finding it and in terms of leveling. It's strength requirement is low enough that you can use it long before any other weapon in it's class even without putting all your points into strength, and it hits way harder than anything else you can get or use for a good long while.

                                                                                  It's not the best greatsword in the game, but for how easily it can be acquired I'd forgive a lot worse than somewhat lackluster stats.

                                                                                          • I infused mine with Lion's Claw. It makes me laugh every time I fling enemies across the field like I'm punting footballs lol. Ever the old reliable alongside the Claymore

Heck, I did a Fai build and still used this bad boy more than my actual magic just because I felt more comfortable with it. ------ Also, does the spike on the sword look like it pierces the player's shoulder instead of being used as a resting place?

                                                                                              • Anonymous

During my 1s playthrough i keep going back and forth between different weapons and the Zwei for my STR build. It has everything: Good damage, good build flexibility, long reach, high poise damage , excellent move set (The R2 and the crouch/roll R1s are amazing), low weight and low stat requirements. I have tried so many weapons.... great mace, nightrider glaive, great sword, crescent moon axe and many more and none of them feel as complete as the Zwei. What an amazing weapon.

                                                                                                • Anonymous

                                                                                                  Imagine this weapon with the Godslayer Greatsword moveset (which more closely resembles how actual zweihander combat works) and a critical attack where the Tarnished half-swords the blade by grabbing the ricasso in their off hand and thrusting it into their opponent. That would take this sword from 10/10 to 11/10.

                                                                                                  • Anonymous
