Greataxes are a type of weapon in Dark Souls.

Overview[edit | edit source]

Greataxes are among the heaviest weapons in the game. Correspondingly, they also have some of the highest Strength requirements in order to wield them. Each swing with these large weapons requires large amounts of stamina, but this power also makes them difficult for opponents to block. Most greataxes have the weakness of having very high ending lag to their attacks, making wielders easy to punish. Their arc also isn't as wide as a normal axe, focusing instead on generating the maximum force possible in the area they do cover.
