Greataxes are a type of Weapon in Dark Souls 3. Greataxes are larger versions of their Axe counterparts and are usually wielded two-handed. These Weapons usually do very high damage and have slower attacks. Great Axes tend to do more AoE attacks than Greatswords

      the only weapon i choose to never touch after tried it for the first time, damage isnt bad but bad moveset really irks me off especially that rolling attack is pure retarded

      • Anonymous

        How the hell Mfer Ashen one does flips with GS and combos with two paired UGS but then when it comes to greataxes he hoes full retard and only swings downwards.

          No matter how much you love greataxes we can all admit they got done dirty in ds3

          Except for the black knight greataxe but then again all the black knight weapons are awesome

            Greataxe moveset is the most boring and the most telegraphed in the game and it pains me, cause they have cool looks and weapon arts. R1 and R2 is the same thing, R2 is just slower, plus 2H rolling R1 may be the worst attack in the whole game, it has 1/3 of a broken straight sword range. This makes greataxe class pretty garbage against ganks, even against 2 people and you will miss while unlocked more than you ever missed. What's funny is that they have 1 horizontal R1: when you fail to do a backstab -.-. Also every greataxe wielding enemy in the game has some horizontal attacks (machette guy, Yhorm, Dragonslayer Armor, Millwood Knight, Demon Ruins Pyromancers). The only nice thing is R1 combos into jumping R2, Yhorms warcry R2 combos into R1 plus BKGA is the only one with good and fun moveset.

              "Fck your spacing. if my heap of iron doesn't ruin your cheese, the shockwaves will."

              Now, people complains about this trait of the greathammers, but with their atrocious stamina consumption they really need it.

              • Greataxes in a nutshell:
                Greataxe: murky has more range especially on a bad connection
                Demons greataxe: look how they massacred my boy
                Great machete: yhorms is better. Admit it.
                Yhorms great machete: the original pioneer of the vertical smash
                Dragonslayer greataxe: L2 GO BRR
                Black knight greataxe: a quality build menace

                  Imagine a greataxe with the "Greatsword" (UGS) move set. The two heavy's would be sooo aweesome. Especially on the black knight greataxe

                  • Anonymous

                    Worst weaponclass for bossfights. doing a swing looks you in place for solid 2 seconds, giving any boss in the game enough time to hit you back. And that retard high stamina consumption. Worthless outside of pvp

                      The biggest shame in this weapon class is that all of them except the Black Knight Greataxe have the same bland overhead chopping moveset, even though Dragonslayer Greataxe, Yhorm's Great Machete, and Earth Seeker are used with significantly more interesting movesets when wielded by enemies.

                        The rolling r1 is such dog**** oh my god. I've been literally right next to enemies, rolled into them so I was literally as close as possible, and the rolling r1 still didn't hit them. It's like the hitbox doesn't exist.

                          I keep forgetting this is a class of weapons because all I ever really see Is Dragonslayer Greataxe, Yhorm's Great Machete, and the normal Greataxe.

                            The pickaxe is called a great hammer but the moveset is identical to a greataxe. Additionally, it has axe in the name. Why is it not a greataxe?

                            • Why, of all things did Ultra great swords & Great hammers get buffed? Why is there no love for greataxes ;_; The windup is slow and predictable, you barerly have hyperarmor, bad tracking, 2h moveset is awful on most of them. From, show us some love.

                                drops from the large enemy with a wooden plank strapped to his back with the two handed handsaw in the undead village on the way to the curse-rotted tree boss.
