There is a lot of dispute among some people as to which one is actually better, and for all my research, I haven't come to any conclusions.

Assuming 50 STR and 50 DEX, +10 with no imbuing, which one is better and why?

    please define 'better'. Are you concerned about PVE or PVP?

  • Neither really. Just in general terms. If there is a major difference, I would prefer PvE.

Check out the wikia. The greatsword gets S rank strength scaling at +10, the Zweihander maintains a B rank strength scaling. http://darksouls2.wiki.fextralife.com/Greatsword http://darksouls2.wiki.fextralife.com/Zweihander

At a high level, the Greatsword would be better.

Also, the Greatsword's base damage is 400 vs the Zweihander's 360. Greatsword is an all around better damage dealer.

The Greatsword should do more damage with the stats you have. since it has better scaling.

well stat wise, greatsword is better but the zweihander is better for me because it weighs a lot less so i can use it with whatever armour i have on at the point

  • You didn't stat any real fact, only opinion (not much can do with this kind of question...)
