How to use Hero's Sword

  • Each melee weapon has a primary combo of three strikes in a row before executing another melee attack, these attacks are categorized into three types:
    • Lunge Attack: This can be executed by pressing the attack button while sprinting.
    • Normal Attack: These can be executed by continuously pressing the attack button for the primary three-hit combo.
    • Charged Attack: This type of attack is executed by holding down and then releasing the attack button for heavier and harder swings.

Hero's Sword Notes

  • Identical model to the starting sword, with a blue glowing aura
  • Charged attacks have unlimited range, but cost around 50 stamina on use. Energy Wave won't be triggered if you perform a heavy attack without stamina.
  • Allows melee based build to damage enemies at considerable range.
  • If the ranged attack hits an enemy, it will be considered a heavy hit (it can trigger the effect of Butcher's Fetish or the Abrasive Amulet).
  • It's suggested to use the Rusted Amulet for a more efficient spamming of the heavy attack.
  • Due to the wave's large hitbox, it can easily be blocked by surfaces when used around corners or at close range.

      Trying to earn this weapon the normal way seems impossible. I can't ever get to 10 consecutive boss kills in Survival Mode. The farthest I've gotten is 5 or 6 bosses in before dying. Seems easier to just grind for 100 glowing fragments and buy the damn thing from Rigs.

        It seems that the charged attack costs 1/3 of stamina, it does'nt seems to be a precise amount, also using lot of stuff to reduce stamina consumption does'nt reduce the cost (that is a bit sad imo)

          why are people calling this sword weak? Use it for ranged attacks charged with razor ring for bleed and the faster melee attack ring and you have an infinite ammo ranged explosion weapon with bleed damage every hit

            The new dlc, 2923, changed this weapon, making it only useful at range. It now has a base damage of 5, 15 when +10, ao it's useless as a melee weapon.

              For those wondering how to get it from Rigs, it should be under "Crafting" when speaking to rigs, not "Buy Items" or "Upgrade". You don't have to have unlocked it prior, as one commenter mentioned. You don't even have to kill any bosses in Survival, though as stated you need 100 Glowing Shards. Mind you, I'm speaking off of experience from the PC version, not sure if the update has been included on console.

                I like the sword. The weird auro effect it has however doesn't fit the game at all. Same goes for the weird whispering while having it in hand. I wonder if they thought of some lore for this.
                As an actual weapon tho it's absolut garbage. Nobody needs the extra reach on charge and the dmg is lower than the scrap sword.

                  As ball-bustingly luck-based as Survival Mode is, you'd think killing ten bosses would net you something a lot more powerful than this.

                      5 bosses on survival = survivor goggles (20% scrap bonus+ scrap drops more often from breakables) 10 bosses on survival = heros sword (Item listed above, glows blue and has an extended range when charged) 50 bosses on survival = loop of prosperity (metal pickups are doubled) 75 bosses on survival = daredevil's charm (Increase all DMG by 25% per unequipped armor and take 1% more damage per peice missing) 90 bosses on survival = Black rose (Increase your CHEST armor set as if you were wearing 1 more peice) All of these must be done in ONE run to unlock. Any difficulty. Multiplayer works too. Good luck..

                        I have not seen it in campaign yet.. However it gets added to your account for all your characters if you kill 10 bosses in 1 run on survival. I died on boss 10 last night D:

                          Is this acquirable in the campaign as well? i've bought it in survival but there is little info elsewhere about this item.
