Like all shortswords, the Gold Shortsword has a very limited range and attacks with a stabbing motion at any direction on 电脑版和 移动版, and horizontally in front of the player on 主机版、 前代主机版、和 , 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 版fighter type enemies.
