Actually the poster is correct except is sword choice is wrong. The sword simply called Greatsword is based on Guts sword from Berserk. This is fact as Miyazaki has said himself.

Compared to the Greatsword, the Cathedral Knight Greatsword does indeed have lower base damage, and is only really better "Normal" or "Refined" using a high STR/DEX build. The Cathedral Knight Greatsword does well with the "Heavy" infusion, giving it "A" rank STR scaling vs the Greatswords "B" rating. Also, the Cathedral Knight Greatsword is 5 weight less than the Greatsword, making it great for STR builds. The base damage with a Heavy infusion is still lower, but the A rating of the Cathedral will surpass damage of the normal greatsword with Heavy infusion. With a STR/DEX build (40/40 let's say) the Greatsword will probably do more damage with Normal or Refined infusion than the Cathedral's though. In the end, as with pretty much every weapon, it really comes down to your build as to which one is more beneficial. For me and my high STR, lower DEX build, I'll be using the Cathedrals so I can pump more points into endurance for more face smashing combo hits while retaining the ability to dodge as often as needed. Hope this helps clarify your confusion!

Two handed R2 is a long, charging thrust that does insane damage. Followup is a vertical smash that can catch people who want to attack if you miss the thrust, or a very good choice to finish off people after they wake up.

This is probably the best looking ultra greatswords to be honest, it also kind of looks like Dragonslayer from Berserk. ***** that this wasn't the regular Greatsword you find in the swamp, the model is soooooooooooooooooo good looking (:

But it is a reference to Guts as plenty of Dark Souls is. Creator of the game was a big fan of Berserk. However the classic GreatSword Weapon fits the extreme length of Guts blade better. I wish that sword had the launching move to throw enemies. It could do that, and had more damage back in dark souls 2, but I guess lore wise it just got rustier as years and balancing went by. Age... OTL, why?!
