The Platinum Shortsword is the platinum equivalent of the Gold Shortsword. It is currently the second most powerful shortsword in the game, and the strongest ore-based shortsword. It deals more damage and attacks faster than its gold alternative, and is surpassed in base damage by the Gladius.

Like all shortswords, the Platinum Shortsword has a very limited range and attacks with a stabbing motion at any direction on Desktop version Desktop and Mobile version Mobile, and horizontally in front of the player on Console version Console, Old-gen console version Old-gen console, 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.
