Weighs more than the Zweihander...meanwhile Zwei has more damage, more poise damage, hyper armor, and a better moveset.
it's also drastically slower and with a higher stamina cost
I guess it depends on if you prefer free swing or tracking. UGS are tricky, if you unintentionally press a different direction, you'll swing and miss your target.
The Greatsword has more damage and the same movement than the Zwiehander, and better scaling and range. The Mastadon sword is faster than both of them. It's a jumped up broadsword with a vertical stroke. I went through DS1 with a broadsword and this thing makes me sentimental.
