The Zweihander or 'Cold Steel Greatsword' is a melee Weapon which was added in the 29/12/16 Beta Patch. It has a slightly shorter cooldown than the Claymore, making it the strongest sword you can purchase. It is sold by Cold Steel CEO Lynn C. Thompson in Trader Camps for 45 food, but if you ask for a demo, he will offer it to you for 30 food, because you 'fought together as warriors'.


  • The Zweihänder was a popular medieval sword between the 14th and 17th century. Historically, they were used similarly to a polearm, favoring stabbing at an enemy over being swung.
  • The Zweihänder is used frequently in modern fantasy, appearing in games such as Diablo and Dark Souls, and even getting a game named after it.
