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.

        Further down this page, there's a comment that reminds everyone that a War Cry/Braggar's Roar R2 is like the DS1 pancake heavy attack, if you want it to do that still. What it doesn't mention is that it's like DS1 in another way: an uncharged War Cry R2 true combos into a light attack. The uncharged one isn't even that slow and it has hyper armor. If they're not smart enough to roll behind you, that's a lotta damage.

                With just 13 STR and 11 DEX, you have access to Ultra Greatsword if u need it's power, Zwei is also the lightest of it's class, allowing pure INT to put Wave of Darkness AoW and cast it with it and it'll scale with INT causing tons of damage. (side note: it's a very popular sword in dark souls too, give it a try)

                • Anonymous

                  Honestly, needs a little buffing, for damage or for recovery after attacks. All its class can use that actually. But still, sometimes love to pull out my cold barbaric roar zwei and swing that thing around ridiculously with the new heavy attack set. In PvP people will obviously avoid getting blendered by a huge effing zweihander flying around but if you can bait someone to trade you in pvp, like when you get yourself to low hp and it makes your opponent grow more impatient and more aggressive, oh man, it will obliterate.

                          would be nice if all weapons and armor, not just boss ones or the occasional one like the zwei, could be purchased once you defeat a particular enemy.

                                  Alright, some simple real talk. Real life zweihander from 1600s would be around 180cm tall, and about 3.5~ kg weight, or a bit more. An ordinary longsword would be around 2~ kg in comparison. Its not exactly a light thing to swing around lightning fast, but its not exactly that bulky that requires entire bodyweight thrown behind it and suck up so much stamina either. However, when Tarnished swings it, the swing itself is really quick. We could assume that he goes all-in full strength in his swings, full ungabunga no technique, so all the swinging a huge arc and slamming it into the ground moves can actually pass. Also normally, stabbing the tip of this to the ground you'd expect its hilt to be at your eye level, the one Tarnished uses seems considerably longer than it would be. And the poke move on this thing makes perfect sense, because this sword was designed to have some utility of being a like spear as by holding this on either on hilt or by one hand on the second hilt and using it pokey pokey as such.

                                    Thinking about trying this with an off-hand catalyst. The Str and Dex requirements aren't too steep, it has decent reach and it gives natural poise when one-handed.

                                        I don't get why they would do my beloved Astora Gs so dirty.
                                        At 21 STR you can two-hand Guts, and it deals more damage with Keen Affinity at 80 DEX, but not only that Zwei deals the least damage of all colossals with these stats. Mind you that is only two points above Zwei's STR requirement.
                                        If it at least were the longest like Astora.

                                          Does anyone know why this can use lightning slash, but not flaming strike? Is there a reason, or just because?

                                            I love this sword but every time my character swings it around like a very heavy club, I die inside a little

                                              If you're insane enough to Power-Stance Colossals, this is actually a decent match for Greatsword because of how close they are in reach.

                                                only 13 strength to two hand....Keenhander time, add a lil determination in the mix with some spiked tear and turtle power and we're cooking

                                                  So in pvp even 1 handed katanas stagger me out of my stamp attacks and r2s while using zwei but not when using greatswords. #eldenringbalance

                                                    I wish this weapon received some utility buffs. Currently it is somewhat outperformed by the Great Mace or Executionar Axe in PVE (both weapons are lighter and deal more damage).
                                                    I would like to see a reduction in weight or a two-hit combo on Torrent, nothing damage-wise but something that would emphasize its utility over the other colossals.

                                                      Maybe it's because it's a colossal so it just has high ar, but does anybody else think this seems exceptionally good for occult? The damage isn't split so you end up with huge damage, and the str requirement is pretty low (only 13 str when two handing), so it makes for a good choice if you do an arcane run that's not focused on katanas and such fast bleed weapons (for example it seems more fitting for a dragon knight kinda character)

                                                      • Basically Zweihander in this game works more like the Astora Greatsword of DS3, it's better as a dex weapon, just don't tell anyone that you leveled that up.

                                                          When you face someone in pvp that uses this weapon its a guaranteed win for you. You expect large weapons to do damage when they hit you but nope. When i get hit because i got distracted by watching a cool scene in a movie the damage makes me laugh. Even funnier than the comedy movie i watch while playing.

                                                              my personal favorite setup:

                                                              Lightning Zwei with Lightning Slash ash of war

                                                              Rotten Winged Sword Insignia, Shard of Alexander, Twinblade
                                                              Talisman (hear me out), and Dragoncrest Greatshield Talisman

                                                              Lightning dmg boost and Stonebarb for the Physick, and then golden vow, FGMS for boss fights

                                                              The damage output and stagger built into this kit is top tier imo, lightning slash ash of war counts as the first hit in a chain - so you can full combo with lightning slash and 2 r1s making the twinblade talisman actually quite consistent especially since most enemies get staggered by zwei

                                                              +24 zwei will hit for over 4k damage in one combo with no physick or additional buffs

                                                              hopefully someone will try this out and have as much fun as I have had with it :)

                                                                So... on the stats spreadsheet how are you supposed to know which attacks they're basing the damage off of?

Was my early game weapon on my first playthrough, then I switched to Bloodhound's Fang for most of the rest of the game, and used the Hand of Malenia to beat Elden Beast.

                                                                    • Anonymous

                                                                        • Anonymous

                                                                          Aside from the obvious Build the way you want.

                                                                          This weapons takes more to Quality infusion for split dex/strength With Very high B Scaling in both.

                                                                          Cold infusion being exceptional for a quality mage build due to reaching mid to high c in all stats.

                                                                          And Elemental infusions being quite good as well.

                                                                          With keen being decent and better on this compared to other infusable Collasal swords, if you ever decide to be a min str dex build with an ultra greatsword.

                                                                          The Greatsword massively outperforms this in the heavy Category.

                                                                          And the Watchdogs Greatsword in stronger than the zwei with both slightly better quality scaling and an extra point of base damage. However the zweihander weighs over 6 units less than both of these options and has much more reach/stamina efficiency than the watchdogs Greatsword.

                                                                          Personally I'd quality build this Thing much as I did in the entirety of the dark souls series.

                                                                          • Anonymous

The moveset they gave this thing is painfully clunky, especially when you've handled a real zweihander and know just how nimble they really are. It's certainly oversized, but considering the Tarnished can manipulate something like the Giant-Crusher, I feel like a mildly faster, more greatsword-speed moveset might have been appropriate. Nevertheless, long live Giantdad. The legend never dies.

Who TF am I kidding, as soon as I get whatever that weapon is I feel dirty and immediately make a beeline for the ZWEI.

Any target, apart from some bosses will be dead and most players should have had their pancaking needs met to boot. Cheers to @03 Apr for pointing this out, it almost feels like ds1 again. And obviously using all the charged attack / roar boosts will make the the combo all the more deadly.
