Great Axes are a Weapon Category in Dark Souls and Dark Souls Remastered. Great Axes are the largest and among the heaviest weapons in the game, requiring the highest strength to wield. Their arc attack motion is very slow and not as wide compared to Axes, with a shorter range and leaving users vulnerable to attacks during attack animations. Despite having short reach, Great Axes deal heavy unblockable damage which will break poise and lead to stunlock when used appropriately. Great Axes can be wielded both one or two-handed. Interestingly, attacks are faster when wielding the weapon one-handed than wielding it two-handed.

  • Pros: Deals heavy Poise damage which stunlock targets, high Attack Power and good Strength scaling.
  • Cons: Very heavy. Slow attack animation, missing the target will leave the player wide open to take damages. Large stamina consumption per hit.
