 Reaper Scythe is a Polearm Weapon in Demon's Souls Remake. Polearms are capable of mowing down multiple targets with a single blow but require high Strength and Dexterity in order to be used. The Polearm is effective from mid to long-range and can execute sweeping and thrusting attacks.


A pole weapon with a curved blade on one end used for slash attacks.

Originally wielded by a sorcerer that commanded spirits of the dead. Pole weapons can mow down many targets in a single blow but are difficult to handle and require both strength and dexterity to use.

        We're down to 4 preorder/deluxe edition items that actually are exclusive. The rest have been found in the game in more rewarding ways than just starting with them. I wonder if we can find the rest?

        Ideas to test for those who actually have Playstation 5s:
        I wonder how Sparkly might respond to dropping multiple combinations of items in her nest? I think a good place to start might be with a big stonking pile of the OTHER scythes in the game.

          You CAN get this in game, I did not pre-order and I found this in game as a drop. I don't remember who it drops from because I didnt know there where pre-order weapons so I just put it in the bank.

            I'm so confused with this pre-order situation. The Playstation store says any pre-order version gets the scythe, so I got it physically since the digital deluxe items did not look cool enough to warrant the extra money (And I prefer getting my games physical) Yet now I can't get the scythe because I didn't pre-order it digitally!? I'm confused and angry.

                  Sony can get f***ed until they make this preorder-only **** available via normal means. Even Dark Souls 2 allowed you to buy its preorder weapons all from a vendor later on. This is disgusting.

                    Were physical pre-orders eligible for the Scythe? I could have sworn physical pre-orders were elegable via different retailers, yet I never received a code from walmart

                      well rip demons souls. this shits gonna be game breaking. Also, 100% they gave out the "not yorms greataxe" and the "not corvian greatscythe" for day one pvping on the ps5s release to distract from how they DIDNT update enemy AI to compensate for new player movements which consequentially makes the game grossly easier. Also, announcing they wont distribute those weapons later to the rest of the playerbase is disgusting, its just a cash grab. $70 to PvE, $90 to PvP. Thanks Sony.

                        It'd be cool if it siphoned more souls from slain enemies as an effect. Not only does it look cool, it could be used for farming as well.
