How should I choose a weapon in Demon's Souls?

Players create builds around specific weapons that have good movesets, deal significant damage, or are easily obtained. Some players choose weapons for their cosmetic appearance, but in most cases it is advisable to refer to the scaling and upgrading path of weapons to determine if the output is beneficial to the character in pve, pvp or both. The following categories of weapons have details on their base damage, and all individual pages feature upgrade charts.

What are Boss Soul Weapons?

Boss Soul Weapons are special equipment forged by combining a unique Demon Soul dropped by a Boss with specific Weapons at the right upgrade level. Demon's Souls can be used for multiple weapons and Spells, so make sure where you want to spend them as you can only obtain one of each boss soul per playthrough.
