Gave the 2H sword a whirl the other day and frankly this weapon just feels like the limpest of all of K’s weapons. Which is a shame because the models for these weapons are gorgeous and the animations are so stylish. It has great cleave and does a good job at meat grinding hordes of thrash, but pretty much everything it does spear push spam can do better and more safely. Also it’s heavy melee stab is just really weak. It takes quite a few stabs to kill even a single storm vermin, while with spear it’s light light heavy into the face to down them much more quicky. (The argument could be made that spear is OPaf now) . At least Salt and Kruber greatswords cleave armored targets, which is what dual swords do.
I know it sounds boring to just give K’s 2h sword a AP push stab but at this point in time the 2h sword is just vastly overshadowed by everything else. Maybe K’s 2h sword should have similar traits to Kruber’s executioner sword - with gross headshot damage that 1shots SV and 2 shots CW, because that’s essentially what the pickaxe can do now.
