The Gold Shortsword is the highest tier of early game metal shortswords, being stronger than the Silver Shortsword, yet slightly weaker than its alternate version, the Platinum Shortsword.

Like all shortswords, the Gold Shortsword has a very limited range and attacks with a stabbing motion at any direction on Desktop version Desktop, and horizontally in front of the player on Console version Console, Old-gen console version Old-gen console, Mobile version Mobile, and 3DS version3DS, instead of an arc. This makes it almost useless against flying or jumping enemies, although its high attack rate makes it somewhat effective against weaker fighter type enemies.

Its best modifier is Legendary.
