Black Knight Greataxe is a Weapon in Dark Souls 3.
Greataxe of the black knights who wander the lands. Used to face chaos demons.
The unique attack of this axe greatly reduces enemy poise, reflecting the tremendous size of the enemies that the knights have fearlessly faced.
Let out a spirated warcry that temporarily boosts attack, and enables a special consecutive strong attack.
Notes and Tips:
- Cannot be Buffed or Infused.
- Reinforced with Twinkling Titanite.
- Deals 20% bonus damage vs. Demons. This includes the following:
- The one hand R2 and leaping attacks are capable of flattening some enemies.
- A fully charged two-handed R2 will launch enemies.
- Two-handed R2s may deflect off certain terrain.
- With 40STR and 40DEX, this weapon has 647 AR. (As of patch 1.07)
- Has the most unique moveset out of all the Greataxes.
- The 2H R2 deal more poise damage than any other weapon in this class. This applies to the other Black Knight weapons as well.
- Has the highest physical and fire absorption with the great-axe class.
Location/Where to Find

- The weapon art alters the strong attacks into a relatively quick, multi-hit chain that lunges forward and deals high damage.
- The leaping strike of the one hand R2 is shorter ranged than its Dark Souls 1 counterpart, but has a stunning effect on enemies near the impact that aren't in range of the damage.
