There's a few counters to it,like stomp or perseverence when they l1. You could also use a fast weapon and stay up close.most of the users don't know what r1 is so they'll just l1 or wa.For the l1 just hit with your fast weapon because the P O I S E is slow to kick in so they'll just stagger and if they use the weapon art just backstab them.Also,on an extra note,the first l1 catches panic rolls so if they get a running l1 don't roll like a *
*Que anime music at deafening volume.*
enemy: L1 spam
me: run away and shoot magic
outcome: hate mail

makes perfect sense
Working as intended XD
Cant it then with magic when you cant run as oh look your pinned
Saw It, tried It, didn't like it. Maybe its just me but the combos don't seem to consistently put out the same damage other strength weapons do.
I like them cuz i use to powerstance greatswords in ds2
True. They were to lazy or failed to add powerstance. Although they do have weapon skills that are really cool
i just can't handle guys using this things any idea how to counter them?
git gud
Most people either spam weapon art or spam L1 for weapon art out space the flip and roll behind easy backstab for the L1 spam get close and roll through expect the full combo and you will destroy all these *****es ;)
An Absolute Bull*****Weapon. Wtf did FromSoft think ? something like "hey gank squads are way to weak lets give them some more Power!" ?. So you had fun invading at Pontiff and trying to beat regual gank Squads? Cool! how about these 3 pll RKPG Squad?! You liked Pontiff fight Clubs ? Well i'll tell you smth there are no Pontiff Fight Clubs anymore now there is a special PVP/Bossfight/Coop event where one pll is standing in the middle and slaughters the challengers with his cool RKPGs one by one until finally someone comes and kills this bastard. Thx From for making DarkSouls3 pvp even worse! (didnt think that was possible tbh)
RKPGS are actually pretty bad. They are just new and most people haven't adapted yet. They are a silly combo gimmick weapon like Farron GS and Friede's Scythe.
The moveset is very predictable, so much so that it is easy to parry, as well as you can always practice on a respawning weapon
The ONLY bull*****thing about these is the damned hitbox. The WA charge... It's a thrusting attack. I shouldn't be getting hit by it AT ALL if I roll through it and am standing at the wielder's 5 o'clock.
Try stomp
Did that a short while back with my Zweihander build. Works like a charm against these.
I never use these weapons, but personally I like it. It puts the git gud back in dark souls. If you can't handle a scrub using these then you can't handle a pro using an average weapon. If you hate dark souls 3 PvP so bad go back to dark souls 2.
This weapon is just a stun lock, it makes the game pay to win
Yeah like I am not too upset at these weapons but it is stupid how if you so much as get hit once youre dead
