Axes are a type of weapon in Dark Souls.

Overview[edit | edit source]

Axes are a group of weapons designed for use in one-hand, where the wielder puts most of their effort behind single, hard-hitting attacks. Most attacks with axes have a very wide horizontal arc, making them very effective at dealing with sidestepping opponents or groups of enemies. They do, however, tend to be shorter than swords, so they do not have as much reach.
