Fume Ultra Greatsword is a Weapon in Dark Souls 3.

This twisted sword, the heaviest of all ultra greatswords, resembles black slate.

This weapon, said to belong to a traitor from long ago, was so heavy that it found no owner, and became a forgotten relic of history.

Skill: Stomp
Use one's weight to lunge forward with a low stance and increased poise, and follow with a crushing strong attack.

Notes and Tips:

  • Can be Buffed but can't be Infused.
  • The heaviest UGS in the game.
  • Upgrades with Twinkling Titanite.
  • Patch 1.03 nerfed base damage. At +5 the base damage was reduced from 330 to 260.
  • At +5 with 66 STR, it has 647 AR while being two-handed.
  • Blocks attacks during Stomp. Each blocked attack will drain stamina as if blocking normally, but wont ever be guard broken.
  • Can serve as a pseudo-shield when blocking, with passable damage reduction and stability; although the lack of 100% physical absorbtion does limit it's uses.  A good idea to offset the chip damage from blocking would be to stack some HP regeneration.
  • It's two-handed R2/RT deals Strike damage instead of Thrust. Probably due to the fact that the sword has no point.
  • Has a higher poise health value than other Ultra Greatswords. While all the other Ultra Greatswords have a poise health value of 27.3, the FUGS has 30.8 poise health. This means you can have 39.3 poise to tank through other Ultra Greatswords instead of 45.9. The higher poise health also applies to the Ringed Knight Paired Greatswords.
  • In comparison to the Heavy-infused Greatsword: the Fume Ultra Greatsword has larger range, Great Hammer poise health, Higher resulting damage (despite its ~30 lower AR, it deals Strike damage and most armors have lower strike absorption), the Weapon Art stomp R2 has more range, has enough stability and absorption to be a working shield against non-large weapons while two handed, and has a superior moveset with its rolling r1 poke and r2 poke.  On the downside the Fume Ultra Greatsword weighs more (about 15 points in vitality), costs more stamina to attack with, and has lower AR so may end up doing less damage against some armor setups.

Location/Where to Find

  • Dropped by Knight Slayer Tsorig underneath the Smoldering Lake.  He can be found beyond the areas with the rats and the basilisks, but before the exit that goes up to the ballista. Go to the left of the stairs to the exit and you will find him in front of a pool of lava. A good strategy to take him out is to use a heavy hammer to knock him down so he can't attack you.

      ferreelz no reason to use this +5 over +10 heavy GS. AR is better, range is better. If you have a 50 - 60 Strength build, check heavy GS over this. Sad, cause it looks cool... :(

        Ah, the FUGS nerf. One of the many mind boggling idiotic decision made by DumbSoftware. Oh no! A big heavy slow weapon does a lot of damage! Lets nerf it! Actually no. Lets add Ledos Great Hammer instead! Wait no, lets buff elemental infusions to make infused weapons do as much damage as a 25.5 unit weapon but weighing much less!

            Still one of my fave UGS for PvP. The movepool is fantastic, it has reach long enough to compete with (or flat out outclass) most spears, strike damage on every hit, and that hyperarmor... that hyperarmor has won me countless trades. Here's a tip for roll-catching: switch to one-handed. The reach on that horizontal sweep is insane. This, 40+ Poise, and a Parry Shield can pretty much hard-counter the entire meta.

              I personally see no reason to buff this weapon, in my eyes it easily surpasses most weapons of its class with the stats I have as of now. With 66 str, 20 dex and 40 fth I get 813 AR with lightning blade. I didn't mind spending points on vitality since it boosts defence, so the weight never really bothered me. My two best weapons right now are the fume and lothric knight gs, due to the ridiculous AR when buffed, but the fume is still superior as of now.

                Considering this is one of the few weapons that made it form DS2 it kind of sucks that it is so nerfed and long forgotten in the law that i just can't like using this anymore. This absolutely destroyed in DS2 and boi..... did i work hard for it.

                Such a shame you can't get the satisfaction from using this in this game :'(

                  Don't ya'll think this is just a lil bit overrated? I mean my heavy greatsword gets just a tiny bit less ar and weighs so much less.

                    I'm 60/60 str/Dex build with 60 vit, 60 vig, 60 end, 20/20 fth/int and the best weapon I've seen for my stats is black Knight great sword. At full r2 I can swing 1500 roughly with no magic buff.

                      This thing is a beauty.

                      For a strength build it's absolutely worth the effort to get enough strength to 1-hand it, because between its one handed and two handed move sets it's got everything you could want from a strike weapon. Great swinging arcs, huge range pokes, excellent strength scaling...

                      Well, for PVE that is. I can think of a dozen other weapons I'd rather use for fighting players and NPC phantoms.

                        Is FUGS worth using one of my precious slabs on? I am considering upgrading this weapon to mess about in PVE in NG++. Worth or pass post nerf?

                          It's incredibly funny to see how at least 1/2 this page is people yelling BUFF THE FUGS, which I do agree with but I enjoy it non the less. ****** outposied a Greatsword user while wearing havel chest and legs which wolf helm and undead legion arms lmao
