 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.

      Thank god this is a reskin weapon that can't even be upgraded. Still scummy to lock any item behind a limited edition, but at least it sucks. But you can bet your ass they're gonna pull something like this or worse when they eventually make a Bloodborne Remake. Don't support that sh**, buy the regular edition, always.

        It's really stupid to put preorder bonuses in a game where your supposed to get your stuff on your adventure but then they make it where you cant get them without extra money **** em

          I preordered Demon's Souls right after announcement to get the Reaper Scythe but only just got a PS5 today, more than two years later. Now I find out that my disk version doesn't get the preorder bonus. Great.

            Anyone willing to trade a Reaper Scythe for a Gold Coin?

            Let me know. Please leave PS Network contact and I’ll message you.

              That was a real kick in the balls
              Pre-order items and then only for the digital version ...
              Should be really ashamed of Bluepoint.
              Just like the westernization of the game.
              No woman and male but A and B. There are no ****ing A and B genders.
              Also that the A or female body is more masculine than in the original.
              And why didn't you have the courage to design the 6 Arcstone yourself or get in touch with From Software and use their concept drawings to submit the world?
              PS: After defeating the Stormruler, the rain continues. Why? That was not the case in the original and it made sense! So much love in detail and then made such a big mistake and overlooked it ..

                Kind of bullshit this is a pre order weapon for demon souls ps5..whn u coulndt hardly get a ps5 till way after release for demon souls

                  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.

                        Who cares boys, if you got em good for you but scythe is hilariously bad and the only good looking armor with sick helmet effect can be obtained as blue version no problem which looks sick as well. So anyway u good

                          if you didn't get this scythe and you didn't pre ordered the deluxe edition of demon souls this is your own fault so stop crying like little *****es you deserve what you get it's for the greater good

                            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.
