Fist Weapons (DS II)
This isn't something that you should use in-game unless your're going to be a pure Strength build. However, Greatswords would be better if you're going that route. Fist Weapons don't have enough reach for In-game, and they kinda shine in PvP.
Pure and simple, these are meant to stunlock players to death. It also provides a decent backstab and can be used very efficiently if you have the rights stats and skills.
