The Demon Blade stands out among the UT Swords for its signature two-shot, V-shaped firing pattern creating a 40 degree angle. While it deals less damage per shot than other swords, its second shot massively increases the overall damage output of the sword, making it one of the highest DPS weapons in the game when both shots hit.
To utilise the full potential of this sword, one must move in close so that both shots hit simultaniously. It is particularly effective in the hands of a Knight, a Paladin using the Seal of Blasphemous Prayer or a Warrior using the Helm of the Juggernaut; they can safely pummel the enemy at close range without much danger. A warrior with max attack can perform a whopping 650 average damage if both shots hit. However, if you have any melee with maxed defense and decent armor, it is easily used on bosses that can be safely sat on such as Limon the Sprite Goddess and Archdemon Malphas - even if you don’t have the aforementioned UT abilities.
The range of 3.38 can be calculated by using the range of tiered swords (3.5 tiles) and multiplying it by the cosine of 15 degrees. It is unclear why 15 degrees was used in this calculation, as it would be more appropriate to use 20 degrees to create a right angled triangle of half the arc gap.
Before Patch X.33.1.0 (May 2020), this item had a Feed Power of 800.
