The NG Golden Sword is a DLC weapon. Since the update on August 26, 2011, the NG Golden Sword has been modified to the same stats found in the PS3 version.
Before the update, it had the highest strength modifier of any weapon, boasting a hefty +6 Strength bonus, along with a +1 to both Magic and Defense.
Also, due to the new update, a level 30 is required on XBL to wield it instead of 5.
- In Castle Crashing the Beard, this is the weapon for the Orange Knight.
- The weapon will be temporarily available without the DLC if the player trades with someone, but the weapon will disappear after the match ends or you disconnect from Xbox Live.
- The design of the sword comes from the level system of Newgrounds.
- While this is a great weapon for lower level characters, it is not the best weapon in the game as most people think. (See:Weapon Tiers)
- In the Playstation 3 version, this sword statistics are +4 Strength, +3 Magic & -3 Agility, greatly lowering its effectiveness and overall worth as a weapon. It has a level requirement of 30 and is bought at the Insane Store for 3600 coins.
