"Generally seen as low tier in more competitive PvP [...]"
Whoever wrote this has absolutely no clue about the real strength of a Zwei. It has the ability to easily stunlock you, especially when your opponent mess up with the positioning or with a failed parry attempt. Some people are trying to roll bs you, because the weapon is slow? Just lock off your target and simply swing it in the opposite direction you are currently facing. Boom stunlocked 99.9%.
Make sure that you don't infuse the Zwei with Chaos, because the split damage won't give you enough power, when you manage to stunlock your target. Just run a normal Quality Build with 27 Strength and 45 Dex as this weapon is a natural Quality weapon, which gives you around 612 Damage, which is also around 10% more damage than the Murakumo. The only reason why the Murakumo was so popular is simply because people could cheat with dead angles, which are now gone. Running a Quality Build with 45 Dex gives you the opportunity to fast cast with your Pyromancy Flame, giving you the true combo kick + flame.
The Meme build (Giant Dad) makes this weapon look bad. But in the right hands, the Zwei is truly a powerful weapon.
