Axes are a Weapon Category in Dark Souls and Dark Souls Remastered. Axes are weapons with a wide medium-range arc attack motion. They provide hard hitting attacks that deal very high damage at the expense of swing speed. Larger axes require players to consider each attack wisely, as missing will leave you open to enemy counters. Its wide arc swing makes it unsuitable for use in small confined spaces as attacks get interrupted when hitting a wall. 

  • Pros: Deals heavy Poise damage which stunlock targets, high Attack Power and good moveset against groups of enemies.
  • Cons: Heavy, slow attack animation with risk of counters when missing, unremarkable scaling.
