General Information[]

This weapon cannot be upgraded, except with the Pureblood Demon's Soul to upgrade it to the Blueblood Sword. It can be found on a corpse in the western half of the Valley of Defilement's poison swamp, guarded by a Black Phantom, wielding a Meat Cleaver. Without being buffed or upgraded, it is one of the weakest weapons in the game, even when the player has sufficient stats to wield it effectively. There is also a chance that the Broken Sword can be dropped by Dreglings in 1-1.
