Great Hammers are a type of Weapon in Elden Ring. Great Hammers are designed to perform slow, heavy attacks that can inflict a large amount of damage. They are effective against heavily armored Enemies, as well as destroying their shields. Users will need high Strength stats in order to use Great Hammers properly.

Some Great Hammers can be modified by Ashes of War to change their Skills or Damage Type, so play around with them and see what you like as you acquire more.

This weapon class was called "Warhammer" in the English version of Elden Ring upon release, but was renamed to "Great Hammer" in later patches.

NOTEAs of Patch 1.08, Great Hammers poise damage has been reduced. 

NOTE: As of Patch 1.09, speed, range, recovery time and guard counter speed of Great Hammers weapons has increased.

      Is it only me that wants something like in/str great hammer with function like bloodborne Whirligig Saw, using gravity magic to spin the blades? I know we have Ghiza's Wheel, but it's a colossal. Plus the gravity magic isn't as flashed out while we have Radhan doing all cool stuff with it.....

        If you're new to the game Great Hammers are good for destroying enemies stance this is my 1st Soulsborne game. I use Lion's Claw Ashe of War and Great Stars does 42 stance damage to make enemies kneel after 1 bonk, 2 for bosses like Margit or Morgott(80 stance) some need 3 like Mohg(110 stance) and the 5 for Radahn(200 stance). I research the game 1st before playing it. In order to have some ideas on how to approach fights after all fromsoft games are notorious for this kind of difficulty. The only irk that i have is that great hammers are lighter than colossal swords but do better stance damage despite their weight it would be better to have colossal swords has better stance damage vs great hammer because they already had their weight as a penalty. Not to mention i really want to roleplay as Guts with Greatsword and Lion's Claw that makes enemies kneel in one overhead spinning slash.

          Short reaches in every weapon usually mean stronger damage. Well usually until you see battle hammer and wonder why it exists in the first place. It’s just so sad an IRON hammer specifically made for colosseum battles is weaker than a wooden bonk .-.

            Oh how I miss my trusty DS3 Great Mace... these all look like cartoonish bonks.
            Why they used Vordt's as the base for this great mace instead of the original is beyond me. That thing at least looked usable.
            With the heavy stuff they kinda go all "Guts sword" and make it over the top.

            They should get some new talent on item design. Besides some very decent weapons and armor sets there's a majority of odd looking stuff.

            Not saying remove the odd, just add more cool looking "realistic" stuff.

              Battle hammer is so comically bad. Same damage as the Great club. Less range. Heavier. Requires more strength. Has a dexterity requirement. Can't get it till you're about 70% of the way through the game.

                      Is there any other hammer that have the R2 into R1 combo?

                      And if anyone knows, does the 2HR2 combo from a storm stomp and does the powerstanced L1 combo from storm stomp?

                        On the longer hammers like cranial or devourer, the two-handed running heavy is a surprisingly good roll catch in pvp.

                          Great hammer main here and also a small hammer main for pvp... the buff is ridiculous. Did they forget to tone down hit stun? Because I keep getting triple r1 combos... even good players can’t react to any mix up. Great hammers needed a damage buff so they stopped losing trades to katanas, thrust swords and specifically heavy thrust swords. And the latter needed a dmg nerf too. But a great hammer speed buff was totally unnecessary; it now plays exactly how small hammers are supposed to play. Great hammer is now good for all the wrong reasons.

                            The 2 handed moveset lacks range to an extreme degree. A 2 handed large club R1 has the same range as a straight sword.

                              Why do Battle - and Rotten Battle Hammer even even have different ranges when both are literally the same weapon but one is stinky!?

                                Idk man, the whole weapon class feels useless when double straight swords ALWAYS win the trade. Not to mention the two handed moveset won’t knock jump spammers out of the sky reliably. I think giving jumps partial i frames and recently buffing jump recoveries was the worst balancing decision ER could’ve made, after giving PS weapon move sets double damage of course. The problem isn’t that jumping is good or PS is good, the problem is that jumping and PS beat collosals and great hammers at trading, which is what they are supposed to win at.

                                  I think a good way to balance them would be to give strike damage bonus against armor. Hammers should be effective against armor, that is their whole point.
                                  Maybe strike damage should ignore a certain percentage of defences. Like ignoring 15-20 percent of targets defences.
                                  I cant comprehend why thrusting weapons get such generous bonus form counter hit which is 30% baseline and have a talisman which boosts it by another 15%, while hammers get literally nothing on top of clunky moveset.

                                    Note: Great hammers are perhaps the heaviest-hitting weapon type that can perform 2 dual wielding L1s against malenia as a true combo, for quite a lot of damage

                                      I know there's way more meta options but these things are just so fun I keep coming back to them. The two handed moveset feels like just enough of everything,, decent speed,, hyperarmor, poise damage, actual damage, some of the chunkier ash of war options. Kind of short though., which is understandably a big no for some.

                                        As of patch 1.06 all great hammers swing faster two handed.
                                        This is probably because they use an almost-the-same moveset as great-axe moveset, and it got buffed substantially.
                                        Since the pickaxe uses the great-axe moveset while one-handed too, its faster both ways.

                                          I really love that weapon class, both in pve and pvp. I thought It's gonna be tough for me in pvp because of short range, but man, the moveset and poise makes up for it, especially since 1.06 R2s are very, very good.

                                                greathammers are the best of the "great weapon" category of armaments unlike greatswords and greataxes they give you enough poise during the hyperarmor frames that you poise will never be lower when swinging you only need 10 poise to be able to poise through 2 handed maces with greathammers and they can poise through any of the lighter attacks with 0 poise investment whereas the other two "greatweapon" classes need 42! poise to hyperarmor through a straight sword

                                                    Seen some comments about these weapons being parriable when they werent in DS. keep in mind the 'great hammers' in DS were ultra great weapons which in elden ring have been categorised as colossal weapons. Colossal weapons being the weapons that cant be parried when two-handed. Elden ring's greathammers are essentially what the greatsword class is but for hammers. This is the exact same for great axes as well.

                                                            Same two handing them with the running heavy attack. I love the underhand swing it had for the rest but not the pickaxe. Too bad because the pickaxe looks amazing.

                                                              Most of these are actually amazing off-hand weapons. They swing incredibly fast and hit fairly hard for a 1H L1.

                                                                Bloody pickaxe with wild swings is actually fun. Like somewhat swinging big ass weapons fast and somewhat horizontally. Need to see if it works on the Berserk greatsword. That would be nuts. But also, so many weapons I've yet to find.

                                                                • Anonymous

Just know that Pickaxe is either the best or worst greathammer depending on the situation, as pierce is very good for trading, but strike is better for upfront damage.

                                                                  1. Brick Hammer 733

                                                                  • Anonymous

                                                                    I'm working on a stagger build for PvE and been doing some testing on the Knight of Zamor enemy just north of the Zamor Ruins site of grace. Greathammers seem worse than greatswords; when powerstancing greatswords I can interupt the enemy attacks with jumping L1. With greathammers (powerstancing the Pickaxe) I can not. The jumping R2 always interrupts the attack though. As far as I know "stagger potential" is locked per weapon class, which is why I conclude that greatswords are bit better than greathammers in regards to jumping L1s.

                                                                    • Anonymous

                                                                      • Anonymous

                                                                        • Anonymous

                                                                          • Anonymous

Lets be honest.. youre mainly gonna be 2 handing these heavy weapons so settle for 66 STR which equals 99 when 2 handing and save yourself some stat investment. You can easily achieve a 66 STR build and stay under 125, out of the tryhard meta range where more viable builds will crap all over you in 1 hit.

                                                                            • Anonymous

                                                                              Heavy Great Stars = 713 AR

                                                                              Heavy Brick Hammer = 762 AR

                                                                              If youre going for the strongest single hits possible, it looks like the unassuming, early obtained Brick Hammer is your best bet.

                                                                              Happy smashing!

                                                                              • On a strength build, the Great Mace has the highest damage. The problem here is that the Iron Greatsword has more AR than the Great Mace...

                                                                                Warhammers need a damage buff asap.

                                                                                        they should also slightly speedup the ashes such as eruption and prayerful strike. no sense in giving weapon class that relies on slow but decisive blows a skill that performs an even slower animation.

I got a false sense of security with my Battle Hammer, and the Carian Knight NPC in Raya Lucaria Hodrick'd my ass into next week. Fully charged R2s can be parried as well, so this class feels like a true translation of greatsword class to hammers lol.
