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 its 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.

      Regular+5 has an attack base value of 260. On a youtube walkthrough I saw one with stats with base attack 330 + 375 stat bonus! How is that even possible? My strength and dexterity level are higher than this guy and my FUGS stats are not even close to these numbers (approx. 100 points less). Is there any way to surpass the base level of 260 in FUGS???

            I dunno if anyone is reading this now in 2020 but... The in-game weapon descriptions tells that the damage is standard/thrust. No strike damage.

              I figured out a funny cheese way to get this weapon! When you go to fight the black knight near the lava just throw a couple alluring skulls in the lava... he will run into the lava mindlessly swinging at nothing, then he will catch on fire and die!

                It appears that they nerfed it so much because: At the time, it was not only the one of the strongest weapons in the game, it has one of the longest R1 ranges of the UGSs, the highest poise health of the UGSs, can be used as a shield, and it's buff-able. While I personally think they nerfed it too hard, it's undeniable how extremely powerful it was before they nerfed it.

                  It was too big to be called a sword. Massive, thick, heavy, and far too rough. Indeed, it was a heap of raw iron

                    I'm cool with the damage (~650 Strike damage with 66 STR when 2H'd and is buffable) and even that it doesn't get the R1-R2 or R1-jumping R2 true combos like the Cathedral UGS gets (since, with buffing, it could potentially one shot too easily), but for the love of God, fix the stamina drain from the WA stomp and neutral guard. It's the whole reason I prefer the FUGS over any of the others, since you can use it defensively too, but even the gentlest of light attacks drains so much stamina I may as well as sit there and let them smack me around since I'll be doing it anyway after all my stamina is gone.

                      Kind of funny how they chose like 20 things to put in from ds2, one of them being the remains of poison pissland (peak ruins)

                        I tried FUGS after GUGS and the first thing I noticed that FUGS can`t do second R1 into third R1 true combo (or L2>R1>R1), opponent just roll away after get hit by second R1. It does make no sense, they both have identical moveset. This is a serious flaw compared to GUGS

                          I have just recently seen this with the remastered, but the fugs looks as if the dragon Greatsword has been covered in grime and use, or it is broken in some ways. Has anyone else thought of this or am I just crazy

                              It was too big to be called a sword.. Too big, too thick, too heavy, and too rough. It was more like a slab of raw titanite.
