Great Hammers are a type of weapon in Dark Souls III.

The largest and most powerful class of ultra weapon, great hammers possess the heftiest Poise health and inflict the most Poise damage of all ultra weapons, making them the strongest Hyper Armor weapons in the game. With the exception of the Pickaxe, all great hammers inflict Strike damage, which is the least-resisted physical damage type on the vast majority of all armor, allowing these weapons to inflict much more damage than their peers. Like greataxes, great hammers possess very powerful vertical swings that can stagger foes in an area around the impact point, which can interrupt enemies attempting to outspace the wielder's swings even if they take no damage.

However, they are extremely slow to bring to bear, meaning that they must be used with care due to how vulnerable the wielder becomes between attacks. Their extreme weight and immense stamina consumption also means that heavy Endurance and Vitality investment is mandatory, and like other ultra weapons they scale primarily with Strength.

Within the great hammers weapon class, there also exists a sub-class of three Ultra Great Hammers, which possess increased Poise health, making them extremely difficult to interrupt once they are in motion. These weapons, Smough's Great Hammer, Morne's Great Hammer and Ledo's Great Hammer, are immensely heavy and require copious amounts of Strength to wield, but when used properly can dominate an area around them, becoming monsters on the battlefield.

Like their smaller cousins, the primary skill used by great hammers is Perseverance, providing instant Hyper Armor to give the wielder increased survivability.
