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

      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
      Earth seeker: Vietnam flashbacks of getting bounced like a tennis ball

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

          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.
