Did this video help you?

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

Dahpie: The weapon of all casuals.

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

Nathan Bradley: Drake's sword is good for starting out, but I'm sure later on in the game it get's to be more of a "noob" weapon compared to others. I may try and get this, in case the Uchigatana, and Halberd I have break.

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

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.

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?????????

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

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... 

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

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

Martycz5: can i do this with any class or only with hunter ?

Vincent Velasco: I spent 5times during on the Taurus demon not knowing you can do a plunging attack... Hardcore mode xD

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

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!

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

PARANO1DxSN1P3R: Not working 

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

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.

DeAno Jackson: Posting this mostly for +Seth Schmitz (I know you said you just wanted to play and die alot, but I have to put this out there for you), but if you're playing *Dark Souls* and you want at least a slight leg-up on all the things that will repeatedly kill you in this game, you'll thank me.

Magnuslix: I just got dark knight halberd and is 245 attack 

SHI RAGE: I got a 2 hand sword that does 265 dmg from the catacomb at the cemetary :) very nice weapon!! got it from the start.

joe vu: how do you get the bow

Dragonblade001: You can use it at beginners lvl if you use it as a two handed weapon

Симо Андреев: yeah I freaked up fro that...killed the only merchant that seems to sell arrows at that stage of the game..gonna try with soul arrow spells I guess

Alejandro Paternina: Black knight sword has 220 and you can get it before, but it is actually a nice weapon

RunnerMIST: i... i love you (no homo)

QuantumRoy27: Thank you SO MUCH.

bullno1: it's good for early game though

Nathei Plays: Atleast its a good weapon in the early stage of the game

CustardGanet: Oh bugger,i am near the Drake and i dont even have a bow!

Sean De La Torre: Blacksmith sells arrows

mikkdc: If you stanbd in the middle arch you can hit it two times. Once in the normal way and then a second time when he takes a step over the top.

BidosBro: How many wooden arrows do you need? :D

pixl_man: It's Dark Souls man. To defeat it, what I did was to shoot him from the one of the sides of the bridge, then he will come near you and you'll be able to hit his head once (the Drake Sword works fine dual wielded) then you quickly go back downstairs to evade his attack. And then you repeat it like ten times :D

PhyreManDan: I killed the Black Knight in Undead Burg but he didn't drop it, is there another way to get it?

VerfluchtKlingen: The Drake Sword looks like the Kris/Keris Blade from Demon's Souls

1012samus: I was having trouble with tge grgoyles when i found out about the drake sword so i tried to get back to undead burg via undead parish but the huge gate before the armoured boar is shut is there any other way back to undead burg

rukis1bitchz: Make sure you have alot of arrows because i think they mighted of patched it.Making it harder.But still works i just did it then.Aim for the tip of the tail.Not the red part the blackish looking tip.

GENESIS2789: love your profile pic

jkbobful: how many times do i got to shoot em

A Sloth: You can buy a bow and arrow at the merchant. How do you expect to hit the tail with a melee weapon, exactly...?

Steven Stringer: Say that to the Highlanders... Some of the few people never to be conquered.

McDeathmask: i watched a vid yesterday where a dude waited for it to land on the bridge, rolled around the back of it & took a few good swings at it's tail & got the sword. I'll stick with the archery method though

Dexter Gray: Thanks Man:)

Hannibal Thai: Not that great a sword anyhow, at the beginning you can get Gravelord Sword from The Catacomb. Though it'd be a bit tougher.

Skaullz: Don't worry, upgrading a weapon a few times outclasses the drake sword.

Elegant elephant: I shot his tail 50 times and he didn't die?!

weskeeey: black knigth sword is better then drakes sword i got it from the black knigth at undead burg in like 30 mins of playing

Áron Horváth: yeeaaa already solved it, :d but i killed the blacksmith and now im not able to enchant my weapons im freaked
