Greataxes are a type of weapon in Dark Souls III.

One of the three classes of ultra weapons, greataxes are characterized by their heavy weight, hefty stamina cost and slow swing speed, in exchange for providing strong Hyper Armor and high damage output. Like other ultra weapons, they benefit greatly from investing heavily in Endurance, Vitality and Strength.

Among all ultra weapons, greataxes have a mundane moveset and the least range, but make up for this by inflicting the most damage. As well, like great hammers their vertical swings can inflict stagger on foes in an area around the impact point, making this weapon difficult to space against even by skilled opponents. As the big brother to the axe weapon class, several greataxes also possess the Warcry skill, allowing them to amplify their already high damage output to extreme levels.
