Smough's Great Hammer is a Weapon in Dark Souls 3.



Twisted great Hammer associated with Smough, the last knight to remain at his post, guarding the ruined cathedral.

Restore HP while attacking, a carryover from Smough's past as an executioner.

Skill: Perseverance
Anchor weapon in earth to temporarily boost poise. Damage reduced while activated.



Notes and Tips:

  • Cannot be Infused or Buffed.
  • Reinforced with Twinkling Titanite.
  • The second heaviest Great Hammer weapon in the game.
  • The second strongest Great Hammer, losing to Ledo's Great Hammer by ~20 AR when 2-handing at 66 Strength. 
  • Every successful hit restores the user's health by ⌊MaxHP * 0.001⌋ + 1; the ⌊MaxHP * 0.001⌋ cannot round below 1.
  • This Great Hammer, along with Morne's Great Hammer and Ledo's Great Hammer, have a higher poise health value than the other Great Hammers, with 32.9 poise health instead of the usual 30.8. This means you can have much less poise and still be able to tank through the other Ultras.
  • Has unique R2 attacks 1-handed and 2-handed.

      You can get a Smough's Great Hammer+5 before pontiff, no need to even fight Dancer, just get 15 twinkling titanites and the slab from Siegward at Profaned Capital and then you will need 30 strenght to wield it with two hands and less than 20k souls to upgrade it to +5 on Andre, then you can enjoy a damage higher than a Lothric Knight Greatsword+7. You can verify this fact yourself if you want :)

        I bet all you casuls that use this trash weapon are a bunch of big tittied lards just like smough. You see when you use the Broken Straight Sword you get in shape and gain some skill so you win both ways, keep that in mind ladies.

            When they said it is a gameplaywise disadvanage, that you can´t see anything while using this weapon i thougth they were joking...

              You can use this at SL25 with the warrior class and 30 STR (gotta two-hand). You are left with 16 VIG and 14 END, but Blue Tearstone Ring, Life Ring and Lloyd's Shield Ring allow you to endure decently (because FAP+3 and Prisoner's Chain are unfair for that SL). The sheer damage and meme value of the hammer make up for everything else.

                Can't see **** wielding this thing lmao. On the other hand, it deals so much stamina/poise damage that i was able to open the demon prince for a riposte, then he did the lazer attack, and opened him up again right after he was done

                      I like this Hammer since I enjoy Smough and what little information is given about him but I’m a little disappointed with the WA of the Hammer.

                      If both Artorias’ abyss sword and Ornsteins spear gets special weapon Arts then I think this one did too.

                      It could’ve had the Charge or electric buttslam that Smough did.

                        My Freind tried this against me a dex faith hybrid and I was using a lightning uchigatana and this hammer is just to slow to hit unless you can stunlock.

                          Perseverance is good but i wish the WA is either the buttstomp or the charge(?) smough does in DS1. Just for the sake of variety.

                            Astora greatsword s wa is the one this weapon should have, instead of the repetitive perseverance wa (wich is useless because you ll get spanked around since this hammer s size covers an important 40% of the screen)

                              Some facts about this weapon: - This is one of the two twinkling titanite STR only weapons in the game (alongside with Quakestone) - Has the highest base physical damage of all great hammers - Has one of the lowest scaling of all great hammers It is one of the best mid game weapons in the game. It can be upgraded to +5 and you can reach 600-700 AR before Pontiff and Yhorm, making the PvE side of the game ridiculously easy. Also, it is recommended to stay at 30 STR, you only gain total of ~10% extra AR between 30 and 66. You can and should spend your points elsewhere especially if you plan to equip the Smough's set as well.

                                    This hammer is the weapon of choice for all PvP masters, who got gud and now dish out regular untouched 3 v 1 gank spanks. If you listen to the following song, you get 150% extra AR with the hammer, but only if you wear full Smough's. 99 vitality meta is real.

                                    • Cosplay this right. Wear Smough Armor, always jump attack. Make so much slamming noise that your opponent jumps off of a cliff because it reminds them too much of the space jam. COME ON AND SLAM AND WELCOME TO THE JAM. \(o.o)/

                                            Perseverance is good and all but they could have been so much more creative with the weapon art. Imagine if this weapon had the charge weapon art with an R2 uppercut that knocked your opponent upwards, similar to the DS1 boss fight. Then you could follow up with the R2 slam on wake up. It's a great weapon and all as is but I feel like they dropped the ball with the simple perseverance weapon art.

                                                  So let me get this straight, this weapon has a much worse moveset than the Great club, is double the weight of the great club, and covers half your *****ing screen, but what do you get for that? 37 more ar and you gain a *****ing monumental 2hp per hit! On a weapon where you have to trade to hit anybody! And you on average take about 140 damage during hyper armor!

                                                  What the ***** did we do to deserve this god awful balance team? Is this part of the experience? Did they find out that the game isn't as hard as it used to be so they responded to it by just making all of our equipment complete dog*****?

                                                    yhorms great machete has more overall damage due to the A strength scaling rather than B scaling. in theory the machete also has a longer reach but the hammers AOE is more spread out in front of the user. Yhorms machete also attacks faster but surprisingly uses more stamina for normal attacks than the hammer.

                                                        I wouldn't honestly take this over Morne's hammer in the grand scheme, it's useful for many situations (particularly when 2 invaders are running about) but once the initial shock wears off a decant pvper will just kite you and r1 spam. that being said this weapon has excellent crowd control and a fairly potent stunlock, all in all i'd give it a 7/10 dangerously potent, but easily outclassed

                                                          i used this weapon in ds1, and it DESTROYED, i one shotted the tarus in ng+ and it dealt 2600 which is stupid, Also its RT/R2 two handed is amusing because you just destroy everything. The only problem was the weight, but that was just to balance it out, have they nerfed it in ds3?

But the description is about Smough BECOMING a knight and stopping being an executioner. Why don't you think that Smough could have ended being a maneater and eventually become as honorable as Ornstein? It seems like in DS3lore the Chosen Undead never fought O&S (Ornstein succesfully left Anor Londo to find and fight the Nameless King, Smough's armor becomes available after slaying Aldrich, which means he ate Smough), so our fat friend had a lot of time to change.

Use a greatsheild (I prefer the Dragonslayers) and just wait for those estoc gankers to run out of stamina, then unleash the space jam slam.
