Greataxes are a type of Weapon in Elden Ring. Greataxes can deal large amouts of damage and can eassily break guads,  but have slow attacks, leaving users vulnerable. Players will be required high Strength stats to wield Greataxes propery. 

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

Note: Since Patch 1.06, the attack speed of Greataxes was increased and the time it takes for rolling to become possible after an attack has been reduced. Also, a fix was introduced for a bug causing additional effects from Spells, Weapon Skills and Items not to be applied correctly when dual-wielding Greataxes.

      No way is Executioner's the longest. I need to double check this data because I'm pretty sure Longhaft and Godrick's are longer.

        What kinda weapons do you guys want from up coming DLCs? Something similar to yhorms great machete would be my choice, I also want anything that looks like BLACK KNIGHT GREATAXE

        • Anonymous

          Sadly still a very underpowered PvP weapon class. Greatswords are faster, lighter, have less stat requirements and offer a greater variety of ashes for customization at the cost of only having 20-30 less AR. Only reason to use greataxes is for style points because most of them only do what other weapons do better. I guess Anchor would be the only exception since it has pierce damage on all attacks but even so most weapons hit faster than you and some can even interrupt you which robs you of the counter hit entirely because the large wapon hyperarmor in this game remains a broken mess. Forgot to mention the nice bonus of aim punch making you miss your opponent entirely many times as well even if you do poise through their attack. 4/10, only use these in PvE unless you're going for a meme one-shot build with the anchor.

            Lolwut, executioner’s is supposed to be the worst one for Dex, but it ends up being the best for Dex based Lightning infusion as well. Greataxe gets a touch more ar at the expense of losing the crit bonus and a miserably short reach.

            Slap prayerful strike or lightning strike on this and call it a day.

              I still don't get why Fromsoft gave greataxes a higher dex scaling component than colossal swords. Like, I understand you need at least some dexterity to wield a sword, even a very large one, but greataxes are literal barbarian weapons.

                Unreal. Fully charged r2's stunlock banished knights one-handed. I loved this weapon class before but now it it a PvE god. Needs more testing for viability in pvp

                • Why are there weapons with a Dex requirement of 8? Of all the starting classes, Warrior has the lowest Dex with 9 and I can't think of any way to lower your stats below starting levels.

                    I'm pretty sure the crescent greataxe R2s have extended range.
                    Check the animation: the handle part of the haft is longer than those of other greataxes and your character's hands change position, going lower for r2s than r1s.

                            Uh... So for some reason warped axe is noted on the max standard value table. Warped axe is a normal axe, not a greataxe.

                              Here’s my take on their moveset. Dual wielding is the same as the great hammers which is great. But I miss the running one handed light attack the great hammers have.
                              I also love the two handed running heavy attack the great hammers have and wish they had this.
                              The crescent axe with its special r2 underhand move that looks super cool would look great as a running heavy attack.
                              I prefer dual wielding the crescent axes but would of loved those two moves in instead. Still tons of fun and they look badass.

                                Is there a single greataxe that has a horizontal slashing attack? What happened to all the greataxes from DS2 that had big swinging movesets that could actually hit a creature standing still directly in front of you?

                                  Is is just me or are these now actually slower than colossal weapons after the buff that weapon class received? At least heavy charged attacks seem slower?

                                        All greataxe running R1s badly need more travel distance. I can fly across the map with Heavy Thrusting weapons, but greataxes barely reach further than their generic R1s.

                                          Greataxes could do with a bit of an increase in either base damage or scaling. They seem to get outclassed by colossal swords, great hammers and halberds. I still use one because having a huge axe is lots of fun, but mechanically there's absolutely no reason to use this over a halberd for reach and moveset, or a colossal sword for reach and damage, or a great hammer for damage and stagger.

                                            Get two of these, heavy infuse them, get flame of the redmanes, get blodflame blade, get flame grant me strength, get raptor cloak, get claw talismen.

                                            You stagger enemies in like 2-3 hits while your redmanes does almost 1k with buffs, and you jump attack does an insane amount. Very very good for a pure strength build, but ON TOP OF THIS, you can bleed an enemy crazy easily.

                                                  So much complaining here...jfc. and not only that but A LOT of people here talking about 80 STR with these greataxes which is a complete waste. Youre very rarely EVER going to use the 1handed moveset, so why not just have 66 STR which gives you the bonus up to 99 when 2handing? You guys are using a heavy type weapon but complain that its slow? What do you expect. You have to learn how to make it work...utilize jumping attacks and powerful single hits to punish and get out. My greataxe/greathammer build is one of the most fun builds ive used since release.

                                                    Greataxes were pretty bad in DS3... I don't know why they made them even worse. They aren't even fun to use anymore, at all. Worse speed/endlag than any greatsword, same stagger, lower damage, less range. Worse stagger & damage type than (already mediocre) great hammers. I do love the game overall... but like, what's the point of including these at this point? Colossal weapons feel undertuned, greataxes just feel like a prank on Str builds.

There is an enemies In Stormveil castle, wielding similar looking weapon. It has a big slightly curved blade. This axe also looks similar to Crescent moon axe, but bigger.

                                                              For the tip, +24 heavy enchanted executioner axe is the strongest when your strength is 80 (and beyond I think, base damage is slightly lower than great axe, and can make A strength modifier), heavy gagoyle's great axe can have '+S' strength modifier, but base damage is so low, it is weaker than normal great axe, but weight is only 8.5. But obviously you can just take hound step for skill, and ignore the 'heavy weight limit' by using hound step instead of rolling. So the heavier the better if you choose hound step.

Current best great axe base ar cant change weapon art though so stuck with war cry would recommend powerstancing with the greataxe using flame of the redmanes for a wide range attack very op aslo jumping attacks with a powerstanced greataxes are so good
