DaS3 - Greataxe

Greataxe is a Weapon in Dark Souls 3.



Greataxe resembling a hunk of raw iron.

If one posesses the inhuman strength required to lift the weapon, the great heft of its attacks will send foes flying.

However, since every swing makes use of one's entire body, attacks leave the wielder wide open to retaliation.

Skill: Warcry
Let out a spirited warcry that temporarily boosts attack.



Notes and Tips:

  • Can be Infused and Buffed.
  • Reinforced with Titanite.
  • Fully upgraded, 40 Strength and 40 Dex provide 599 AR with Heavy infusion (633 2-handed), 621 with Sharp, and 619 when Refined.
  • Same stats with 40 Luck provide a Hollow infusion 657 AR (680 2-handed)
  • When infused with Raw, it has the highest pure physical base damage of any weapon.

      Despite its high requirements, this is a "raw" weapon. Its base damage is superlative but its scalings are poor. Heavy only bumps it from a C strength scaling to a B, rarely adding much damage compared to what heavy infusion can do to other weapons. However, Simple, Blood, Poison, and Hollow infusions, perhaps uniquely, do not lower the base strength or dexterity scaling of this weapon at all. They do lower the base damage, however, so Blood and Poison are still a net loss, but Simple adds impressive magic scaling and Hollow adds enough Luck scaling for it to surpass most other infusions.

        great weapon, sucks that it whiffs more often than not in my experiences at least. the shockwave stagger's useful though

        • Anonymous

          At 99 everything, Hollow Greataxe achieves the highest pure physical AR of any weapon in the game at 753 (829 with warcry). Hollow Greatsword comes in 2nd at 749.

            God I love this axe. If only it would have even just one horizontal swing attack, that would be so damn satisfying! But maybe that would make it a bit unbalanced, unfair or OP, idk.

              Yo this **** ****s. Did a strength build in my last play through and used this until I got my fume knight sword, but ended up using this more. This is an absolute boss wrecker, especially with its warcry buff. Only thing I dont like about it is how its charged attack changes when you warcry buff, but that move is better for pvp moveset diversity so its kinda so it just has a different use. I found in that playthrough that my fume sword was better for general mob enemies, while this was the weapons for killing bosses. I could three shot enemies like aldritch, and even killed dancer early with it. Got it to +9 before even touching irithyl valley or clearing the catacombs. Such a great weapon. I infused with heavy, but if you want to use it then infuse with sharp. It gets a higher AR that way, If you are doing a pure physical damage build I mean, Idk anything about the magic infusions.

              • Anonymous

                was not expecting this to be this good, just shy of 600 AR at +10 heavy and onehanded, and of course it has its own buff that makes the damage more like 650 1h

                  This followed by the demon's greataxe are my favorite big boy weapons. I only wish they didn't weigh so much.

                        Tips: 1) never use 2H rolling R1. 2) warcry rolling full charge R2 is surprisingly effective. 3) offhand a rapier/halberd to set up your greataxe attacks because it really is just the slowest, shortest weapon around.

                          Garbage.
                          Hits hard, looks cool, the only weapon that looks good with hornet ring heavy riposte. But also sucks all of the ass.
                          Reason? No range. Which means no spacing. You are outspaced by literally everybody else including yourself - R1 attacks can stagger-push the opponent outside of your range, which means a 2nd R1 will sometimes miss unless the enemy is point-****ing-blank.
                          Combine this with retarded moveset all axes have in this game and you will realise that you are literally incapable of crowd control.
                          The default Battle Axe has more range and crowd control than this thing.

                          • Anonymous

                            The great axe actually has a deceptively long range. When you two hand it your character just does a smash down in front of him. But when you one hand it your character lunges forward on one leg.
                            Basically just one hand this weapon. Even on a str build the damage is still greater than most ultras because the great axe has huge damage in general. And you’ll be able to lunge after lot of careless attacks and punish like crazy due to it’s speed. You’ll need to learn when someone is parry baiting, though.

                                Good for low sl invasion. ganks aren't strong or durable enough until sl 50, even with phantoms that finished the game and uses the twin prince's gs. This monster will cut through their bullsht.

                                      In terms of pure physical ar, the hollow greataxe is the king. You need luck, str and dex to reach like a whopping 780 ar that can be buffed further via warcry or blessed weapon.

                                        Love how these weapons still reward you even for missing an attack. Few things are more unfun than trying to space a greataxe.

                                          In 2016 they released this *points a covenant*, way of blue. Their most accomplished host protection. I think their undisputed masterpiece is "blades of the darkmoon". A covenant so catchy, most people probably don't question why is there when they already have blue sentinels. But they should because it's not just about the toxicity induced to a large part of souls community and the importance of balance, it's also a personal statement about the incompetence of miyazaki himself.

                                                    When using this weapon, the hitbox is weird and i'll miss someone if i miss and pound a hair to the side of the target. Playing against some bosses, i underestimate how short the axe really is. But i'll be damned if i'm not having fun with it. Right now running a Str/Fth build, I have Lightning Great Axe +10. I use this with Yhorm's Greatshield +4. It's so/so in terms of wins, but it's really run to ***** tank my way into the opponent.

                                                    When buffed with Deep protection and the WA, i'm getting 800s in AR, add Sacred Oath from Sunlight Sword, we're in the 900s. I like the fact the AR is close to some axes, but it takes less stamina.

                                                      Like everyone else, I used to think this weapon was dumb due to range and being outclassed by it's brethren, but lately i changed back into a tanky build and like being all up in people's faces. My win rate is horrible in PvP with a lot of weapons, but this has a fun charm to it. I got two of them early game because I was grinding levels at the high wall. Going to heavy infuse one, and lighting gem the other (str/fth character)

                                                        does ~1100 damage on average with crystal infused build, very happy me, very salty host, would recommend

                                                        10/10 would eat two hits from Ledo's again.

                                                          imagine that monster at +10 heavy infused and buffed by crystal magic weapon... would just one hit kill many bosses and probably kill yhorm with a very few hits

                                                            Tested this off hand with dark sword on right hand and found an r1 + l2 + r2 truecombo. Tried several times on drakeblood knight and couldn't roll out of it but idk if it works against players.

                                                                Got this early on, charged a couple R2's and then finished off Vordt with two R1's. No upgrades or anything.

                                                                • Anonymous

                                                                  Many ppl underestimate this weapon for being slow and having a short range, but the 2nd warcry r2 is really deceptive. Can be used after a roll, the shoulder tackle has good range and staggers a lot with hyperarmor to tank greatswords and the double chop at the end deals some serious damage.

                                                                  • Anonymous

                                                                    • Anonymous

                                                                      Always start an engagement with warcry. As others have stated, the R1, will always combo into another R1, and then R2 will roll catch, and if they don't roll you hit them anyway. Fool proof. Keep in mind you won't do the R2 roll catch unless warcry is active, and it's quite brief. Yes the range is a drawback for sure but range is less important because you're looking for trades. Don't use this weapon ninja flipping around and trying to poke. The R1 either one or two handed has hyper armor, and if you're pure strength then that's more points for health, endurance, and vitality, so the trades will almost always be in your favor, especially after they get hit by the R1,R1, buffed R2. If they're still alive they won't be able to trade again.

                                                                      • Anonymous

                                                                        • Feels alot like the Kirkhammer from Bloodborne. Short range and the relativly slow swings of the Greataxe class often end up by us eating hits. Same as with Kirks in BB. In exchange we get an infusable, selfbuffable powerhouse of a weapon that can carry you easily through the whole game just by its sheer destructivness!

                                                                          • Anonymous

I've maxed out 3 covenants with this weapon in pop, and have had no problems. No I don't win every match but still gets the job done. I hate people complaining about any weapon that they can't be unbeatable with cause they're such sore *****ing losers.

                                                                              • Anonymous

                                                                                  • Anonymous

It covers a good amount of distance pretty quickly and can eat most attacks during the animation.

(Someone correct me on this, if i’m wrong on anything.)

                                                                                      • Anonymous

And you can boost damage with warcry. Wow. Basically you get 344 pure physical AR on sl 8 if you start as a warrior and use knights ring

Great PVE str weapon. Especially on first run when other upgrade materials aren't easily available for dragonslayer greataxe or yhorms great machete.

I've been playing DS3 for nearly 400 hours since I discovered the series last Christmas but never really got around to using this weapon for some reason. Started using it and holy crap is it great. It's the highest damaging non-boss, non-unique weapon and can be attained like 10 minutes into the game and absolutely rocks throughout the game. Currently, at 66Str, 12Dex at +5 it has a two-handed AR of 683, and that's without the buff. It's range is akin to that of a toothpick and it's stamina consumption is quite massive but it has insane damage, knockback and it's buffed 2H Heavy attack really surprises people, even experienced players.

                                                                                                    • Anonymous

You can get this like 15 minutes into your game from the greataxe hollow by the high wall elevator shortcut if you farm for it. Even with the 22 STR to two hand it, if you're not going above this, you can raw it for big damage, or continue down STR and heavy gem it. If you're confident with its short range and high stamina use you can crush the whole game with this, and using it early on makes you feel dirty as *****.

Get this, Dark infuse it, have 66/40/40 STR/INT/FAI, add Dark Clutch, then put on a blindfold. Oh yeah, Sacred Oath and Deep Protection too, then shout.

                                                                                                                  You can obtain one as early as "The Highwall of Lothric" if you're willing to grind, but I assure you, it's worth it. Only a handful of early game weapons can compare to the longevity of the Greataxe. The Greataxe can kill The Nameless King with the same ease (AR-wise at least. Player-skill-wise is another matter entirely) that it kills Vordt with. In PvP, this weapon's alt R2 attack (After activating Warcry) can catch many invaders by surprise, both new and old players.

                                                                                                                  Be aware that the Greataxe possess terrible reach and a hefty stamina cost per swing, but the sheer damage it inflicts, as well as the stun aoe of its blows, makes the Greataxe one of the best weapons in the game. Not only is it lighter than the Dark Knight Greataxe, but on a pure Strength build, the Greataxe's AR absolutely trumps the DKG, and unlike the DKG, THE GREATAXE CAN BE BUFFED.

                                                                                                                  Which brings me to my next point. Strength/Faith builds.

                                                                                                                  Now if you're looking for a high AR weapon to buff...

                                                                                                                  ...Look no further. Even if the Lothric Knight Greatsword has higher AR, the split in damage affects your total DPS. Because the Greataxe has the HIGHEST PHYSICAL AR OF ALL non-boss/non-unique weapons, the split damage is significantly lower than the Lothric Knight Greatsword.

                                                                                                                  ...And besides, yield for yield, this is best weapon to pair with Blessed Weapon/Carthus Beacon for straight AR. Ergo: MAXIMUM DPS.

                                                                                                                  • Anonymous

                                                                                                                    • Anonymous

                                                                                                                      with the new formula for two handing weapon strength requirements, you can 2H it for 22 strength
                                                                                                                      With the Knight's Ring, you can 2-hand it with just 17 STR and 8 DEX and it will still hit like a truck

                                                                                                                      • Anonymous

                                                                                                                        With +10 heavy and 60 str this has a 633 AR (only 14 AR off from BK Greataxe with a 40/40 build), whereas with +10 refined and a 40/40 build it only has 619, making heavy the better choice. This also gives you an extra 11 points to play around with and put in other places. If you're looking to drop a little bit of weight or if you just want the extra points for other things from the BKG and still want to use a greataxe this is a great choice.

                                                                                                                        • Anonymous

                                                                                                                          • Anonymous

Mostly Top 3, 3rd to Dragonslayer Greataxe, and Demon's Axe comparing axes, but the weapons that DO have higher damage NONE of them cant be buff or infused (other than Lothric Knight Greatsword). Meaning if you take the fact how early you can get this, and it can be infused toward personal playstyle, plus buffed with spell and resins, plus the material need to upgrade it is most common, I'd say this is a Great weapon. Only con I can think of is the moveset is just vertical.

Called her the silver witch and gave her this axe. I guess what is nice is the surprise it brings to overly aggressive invaders. They seem to believe this weapon is weak and so they go for the backstab. The stun of the swings typically prevents that as it stuns them even if it misses. My favorite moments with this weapon has been when invaders try to parry it. Something about this thing just makes pvp wins more satisfying overall.
