I am playing dark souls 2 on pc. I remember i could wield a weapon in 2 hands while hiding my shield. I have forgotten how to do this.

I am trying to two hand a great club. Even if i put away my shield i still hold it in one hand.

How do you wield a weapon in two hands in dark souls 2?


On the pc the default key to change weapon stance is 'n'. If you're playing on an Xbox pad then you need to press the Y button.

    In the case of the controller, if you hold Y, it will two-hand your off-hand weapon, while tapping Y will two-hand your main. What is the case for PC? – Ben Nov 17 '14 at 1:31
  • It is the similar, you hold the N key instead of Y. – wr4ith Nov 17 '14 at 9:26
  • @Ben Keep in mind that when you hold the Y button (N on PC, assuming Triangle on PS), and Power Stance is possible, you will Power Stance instead of 2-handing your left hand weapon. – MisterBla Nov 18 '14 at 20:18
