Colossal Weapons are a type of Weapon in Elden Ring. Colossal Weapons are heavy weapons which require the wielder to have high Strength. They are capable of inflicting massive damage to enemies but are slow, making its wielder vulnerable to enemy attacks.  

Colossal Weapons are compatible with a range of different Ashes of War, allowing you to mix and match for whatever your needs may be.

      man they really really need to fix aimpunch with these. most weapons can cope since the swing much faster, but every hit i miss because my character flinches slightly feels like a kick in the balls.

          I know these are not good both in PvP and late-game PvE, but man... I just can't help but return to these big boys weapons. Other weapons just don't feel the same. The masculine desire to take the heaviest stick and bonk is strong with these.

            Even thought Rotten Greataxe and Rotten Staff seem like quite the meme weapon, if you powerstance these weapons then you can get a far superior CR1 (a downgraded version of UGS pokes), with the same hyperarmor properties on weapons that apply scarlet rot. You can also apply rot grease to the rotten greataxe.

            The main drawback of this set up is the insane ENDURANCE necesary to dual wield the Colossals with armor that has enough poise. But the main advantage of it its the posibility to hard counter PS greatspears, PS straightswords and UGS by using the different moves that grant over 130 to 160 total poise with the necesary gear.

              In the context of Bull-goat's talisman, having the talisman equiped boosts every single attack of the Colossal Weapon class significantly, allowing you to even poise through Colossal Swords with ease with certain moves. For example, at 46 armor poise and Bull-goat's talisman equiped you can poise through Colossal swords' pokes with R1, R2, jumping R2 and running R2, the best move is R1.

                You can bait people into rollcatching you by panic rolling randomly at a duel, since Colossals get priority out of crouch attacks against almost every single weapon in the game you can land a 2-h or 1-h CR1 or even a block cancell R1 out of crouch if you predict the attack coming early. Just remember to have enough poise to do so, having bullgoat talisman buffs your hyperarmor too.

                  i hope fromsoft shows a little love to colossals. you get anchored in place for so long so its really easy to get punished for whiffing. it would be nice if the normal R1s and R2s had a little more lunge and a faster recovery.

                    PVP info: Glintblade phalanx is probably one of the best AOW to pair with these weapons since you can abuse the heck out of the garanteed hitstun that these blades provide, I recomend using this AOW on a primary hand weapon such as a thursting sword and softswap the weapon for the Colossal when you are done so that you can land the slower moves such as backstep R1, R1, running R1 and jumping R1 because of the hitstun.

                    The mayor flaw of the Glintblade Phalanx is the cast time and the skill floor needed to use them effectively, if you are able to go beyond these weaknesses then you can gain access to one of the most skill expresive AOW in the entire game, this set up is an insane noob stomper against casuals, I constantly end up buffing like once or twice during duels because my opponents can't figure out a way to get too close (and I have no clue why), and when they too close and make a mistake then I just look at them to trigger the glintblades, get the hitstun and deal between 500 to 1000 damage on a true combo with hyperarmor. This is very fun to execute and it is such a decent way to make a weapon with such a trash neutral game very good when combined with the poison infusion.

                      PVP info:

                      I have found that, when infused on Poison, Colossal Weapons can get a very decent neutral game thanks to phantom hits and the obnoxious poison stat that they get (+132 at lv.25), that combined with Poisonous Mist can turn the weapon into a deadly force against non-experienced players. This also allows to set up a jumping attack on people who try to use boluses too close from the user of the Colossal Weapon.

                      Also, Poisonous Mist AOW on Golem's Halberd is a very good AOW, I recomend you trying it as a starting AOW if you are new to the weapon class so that you can pressure people even if you miss all the time, just remember to keep your spacing and stamina always in check so that you don't get into a situation where you can't dodge roll out of dange or into a scenario where you can get backstabed very easily.

                          Looks like Prelate's Charge start-up blends almost perfectly with the blocking animation while using a Colossal, with the only visual indicator being the flames starting to appear and the weapon turning 90° to the side.

                            If you ever find trouble attacking hyperagressive people in PVP with any infusable colossal, use Stamp (Sweep) as a punish, I have found this specialy effective against UGS users while using a bleed infused golem halberd. Just remember that it can be punished very easily and it doesn't cover jump attacks.

                              People, I have found that Storm Stomp AOW can actually true combo into an R1 if you hit someone with the AOW right about the end, it is not a reliable strategy, but it helps to counter hyperagression while using the weapon class in PVP.

                                This weapon class is so gimped for almost no benefit. Their playstyle is as one-dimensional as colossal swords because it hinges on spamming their only attack that isn't complete garbage

                                  Even within the same weapon class axes are still gimped. Despite having the exact same moveset as the hammer colossal weapons they have lower hyperarmor and poise damage. why?

                                      I didn't have the requirements for any of the colossal weapons when I found them, and I didn't invest in attributes with any of them in mind later in my game. I've just tried some out on the guardians around the smouldering church in caelid, all hit hard even with no upgrades, and I could see the skill needed to use them effectively when I target locked an enemy but couldn't see it anymore because the weapon was in the way. but I have some questions as well, and I'd appreciate it if anyone who's using them as their main weapons would answer. I tried ghiza's wheel first, seemed like it could be a fun weapon to use but it had a detrimental effect on the camera, as if the right stick was being pulled back slightly to look up, I don't know if its intentional to give a feeling of weight but it didn't feel right to me even if that is the case. exact same thing with dragon greatclaw, prelate's crozier and great club but those three all had issues with the R1 input not always registering as well as making the camera behave oddly, (didn't run out of stamina) left me just standing there doing nothing, crozier was the worst for not reacting to R1 inputs, the weapon art on it wasn't consistent for me either, I had plenty of FP to use it, but prelates charge was going into the uppercut hit when I was still pushing forward on left stick, its supposed to keep the hammer head on the ground laying down fire in a AoE until either the FP runs out or L2 is released then do the upper cut. there were some issues with golden land on the great club as well but I think that might be about the scaling or maybe not being upgraded. so is the wonky camera the price of admission for those weapons? to give them a feeling of weight? and is anyone else having R1 inputs not working or inconsistency in the weapon arts on these particular weapons?

                                        How to win with colossal weapons.
                                        Roll poke, crouch poke, giant poke. It’s important to remember that you can poke some these weapons.

                                        • The crouch stab attack of these isn't so bad, it is one of the better attacks in the game. Fast recovery, big circular hitbox, big extra poise. It's just that the range is low compared to the longer colossal sword pokes. These are W I D E, those are Looooong.

                                              makes them pretty sweet for casually strolling through the game without worrying too much about eating a hit or 2, if you can stomach the shitty rolling R1 on some of them that is

I have been losing my mind watching all these ash of wars on these teeny tiny weapons completely ignore hits from these things.

                                                                                                I am very serious and confused what it does. It even has an unique abilty which seems to do nothing but holding the staff into the air
