Did this video help you?

Wafu Smaki: "To equip the bow go into your inventory and equip the bow" thanks for the help.

PowerfulPig: No offense but how have u not found a replacement if ur far into the game? usually i have a +15 grt scythe by orenstein and smough and their only half way through the game

Moon Mover: You missed an important detail. The sword has a friggin' long-range attack! If you wield it in both hands, it's strong attack (right trigger on Xbox) launches a wave of energy.

Spider Jerusalem: Drake the type of nigga to kill me lots of times.

UnknownDante: I just shot 113 god damn long arrows in to this bastards tail with a shortbow and nothing. I only have 9 dexterity and 20 strength but COME ON! 

Michael De la rosa: Pretty far into the game he says...look at his little health bar. I could kill him with one punch. He's still using the wooden shield. My bet is he just beat the Taurus demon. Pretty far into it he says...yeah ok buddy.

THESOGGYSPONGE: I killed the merchant near the Dragon so now in order to buy arrows so i had to find the black smith and annoyingly retrace my steps 

612aster: Drakesword does not last throught the rest of the game... It's crap in Anor Londo xD

Rockinrock28: I managed to do this with a crossbow on the perfect angle

Annu Rajput: Got my sword n kill black night 2 only 4 hits hahaha

samuraipanda85: Guys he doesn't mention this but if you use the short bow get your dexterity up to 12 so that you can use it properly. If you don't your hits will do only 2 damage. And the tail has about 200 hp I've heard. So short bow, 12 DEXTERITY, THEN you can take out the tail in about 20 hits. Also, get some heavy arrows, any will do (I think), but heavy is best.

Tanaka Ryuzaki: There is a weapon that is better near the beginning of Lordran at the top area you can find 2 black knights one has a club and the other a sword and shield the sword and shield one you can lure to a ledge that you can go onto another bit and you can kill the black knight that way and the base damage on the Black Knight Sword is 220

Connor Peters: Can you do the same with a crossbow?

MrRexel14: to anyone trying to do this i implore you DO NOT though a very powerful sword at the beginning of the game, the developers deliberately put it in as a trap once you become a high leveled player the drake sword won't scale with your level so it will suck because you can use other weapons that do scale and though may seem weaker and have lower attack points will do even more damage than the drake sword. it really is a trap and you'll regret using it

Dick Tingler: I love how everyone forgets about the gravelord sword, It's so much better than this piece of crap sword 

everett818: I like the gravelord sword, it has 265 attack!

mastersora091: I accidentally killed him is there another way to get it?

Ret4life: I never knew this... I tried it for the first time and im using about 50 arrows and still nothing. Any ideas?

crazygamer0717: Hey can anyone help my drake sword needs repairing but I accidentally killed the blacksmith and I don't have enough souls to bring him back I have defeated dragon tarturus demon and gargoyles I killed the one near the gargoyles but im stuck in the capra demon because I don't want to use my drake sword because it will break any help?????????

Jimmy Chen: How to you go in FP in PC?

Penney Jeramy: Its 13 hits consecutively on the tail.

catpilan20: I've shot him 30 times with a short bow and common arrows and his tail won't fall

Braden Canning: I got the drake sword. way too easy. Plus i was bored so I decided to kill the dragon using the same method. got 10,000 souls, but no drop :( oh well atleast I know I killed him

KoDDaedra: i have shot that tail at least 70+ times now and i still don't have it I'm using a long bow with standard arrows any suggestions? and i tried quitting and reopening the game

rikard1414: worst sword of all time it broak for me in 3 hit

YourPalBadger: It's cute how he thinks he's "pretty far into" the game. You can get to this area of the game in less than 10 minutes from the beginning. 

Joshua Sutradhar: Drake sword is a flop....its better to get a uchigantana by killing the merchant in undeadburg..which enough to get through sen castle

Stealthy Narwhal: you can find the black knight sword pretty early on and it has 220 base damage

Dion Greco: I've gotten a weapon that is called Black Knight Sword and it has 205 dmg. (Strength Req: 20 Dexterity Req:18)

timruneskate96: In case you think it's not working/ it's taking long don't worry I was thinking the same thing but it worked.. Just took a lot of arrows, at least for me it did.. ALOT OF ARROWS

Ryan c: Can u use souls arrows 

Jesse Pauzé: Most overpowered sword early in the game

raz yeru: but where i buy?!?!?

venom6149: EASY WAY TOO MAKE SOULS: just let the dragon burn the hollows to get 555 souls as you saw in the vid then go down stairs to the bonfire down the ladder you know the one and rest and rinse and repeat to get the easiest 555 souls for doing nothing :D

KoDDaedra: i have shot that tail at least 70+ times now and i still don't have it I'm using a long bow with standard arrows any suggestions? and i tried quitting and reopening the game

FaxingBerlin42: Got the Black Knight Sword as a pyromancer using fireball on the first black knight before I got this far. Needless to say, I was very lucky and never gave this sword a second glace.

WhatR2D2Saw: "to equip the bow and arrow you go into your inventory and equip the bow and arrow" noice.

MegaTheshiz: God damn I wish I knew about this. I'm playing through for my first time and all I have is a Long Sword +5 and I'm getting freaking beat. Right now I'm on Darkroot Garden, really thinking about replaying the whole game.

Joshua Sutradhar: Drake sword is a flop....its better to get a uchigantana by killing the merchant in undeadburg..which enough to get through sen castle

xaga97: what about the dark knight sword? I got it at 1st dark night and does 220

YourPalBadger: Drake Sword is a good sword for the first few beginning parts of the game. For the more difficult parts... Not so much. Upgraded, maybe, but it's such a pain to do so, it's not worth it. You're better off reinforcing a better weapon of choice when you have the option to do so. It's not a trash weapon, it just grows gradually more useless as the game progresses.

shiftiback: i already got the Dark Knight Sword so don't really need the Drake sword

zantku: The first person mode didn't work for me, all I could do is third person.... But at the very least I had alot of arrows so I got it!

PARANO1DxSN1P3R: Not working 

Madness: The weapon of all casuals.

wildernes84: i hit drake with atleast 50 wooden arrows.. no tail :(

Jakub Michalak: Confirmed for doing it with crossbow as well! :D

Divine Azazel: The drake sword is crap at the beginning its good but once you get to new londo ruins your freaked

daftvexxx: Thanks for the guide. I didn't have a bow so I had to use a crossbow to kill it. It took about 30 bolts, but it did the job and I got the sword!

Dennis Koutsoumbas: I kept shooting him with around 75 arrows but a little higher than that with Large Arrows but I didn't get it... Do I need to shoot that low? I once done it with another char with large arrows no need for bone arrows...
