Greatsword is a Colossal Sword in Elden Ring. The Greatsword scales primarily with Strength and is a good Weapon for cleaving many foes at once with its wide swings. 

 

A coarse iron lump of an ultra greatsword.
Mows down foes by utilizing its incredible weight.

Though handling it likely requires the wielder to have surpassed the realm of the merely human,
it is precisely for this reason the weapon is used to slaughter even inhuman foes.

      At invasion RL 400+ almost everyone using this weapon + bleed + BHS + Targoth armor, most epic invasion so far, better than meta level with ROB/Moonveil.

        Greatshield+ dagger is a good counter. Block the poke and retaliate with an R1 that can damage them before they recover and roll away.
        Another good counter is shield bash on a greatshield, you can block their pokes WHILE bashing them in the face for some big numbers and it won’t guard break since shieldbash takes barely any stamina.
        Jumping the poke sets you up for a high-damaging counter-attack which they can’t roll out of due to recovery. You can sometimes even win the match due to one mistake by them when powerstancing heavy weapons for jump counter.

          I hate greatswords because all greatsword except clamore have terrible moveset making Gs user just rely on jumping attack and ash of war
          If you want just spam jump attack and ash of war why not just using colossal sword which have significantly more damage and reach
          I maked other character after beating this game with greatsword
          Using other weapon class make this game so much easier for me

            I'm hoping Miyazaki has been inspired by how people use this weapon and the next patch makes it so the only move this has is the crouch poke. Also hoping for an Elden Ring Netflix anime adaptation where the protagonist only crouch pokes.

              i mained UGS @125 for a while and recently switched too moonveil. can confirm UGS is easier and more deadly than moonveil.

              its too low risk with its range and even dodges can become offensive with the dodge poke.

                Upon looking at the sword, the actual STYLE of the sword seems to look more similar to one of Guts’ Replacements for his golden age sword…before immediately breaking it and picking up the raw slab of iron that went on to be his iconic weapon.

                • "Just slow down the poke a little bit, there's no reason why these should have higher damage, poise break and hyper armor than great spears."

                  Weight alone could account for that.
                  This Colossal Sword is almost twice as heavy as the heaviest (Serpent-Hunter) Great Spear.

                              Honestly I prefer the running r1 over the crouch poke spam, I've even been able to dead angle people who are miles behind me that still get hit by what I assume is the weapon's lingering hitbox like how the Dancer's grab hitbox from DS3 can still grab you even if you slightly touch the back of her hand.

                                    Nox flowing hammer is a good counter for this hunk of garbage if you don't have any other ranged options, it's a little hard to keep the spacing right but still manageable

                                      as opposed to zweihander or any other ugs, whenever I see anyone using this one i just immediately finger sever them, they don't deserve the chance of an honorable duel. yall weebs are no different than braindead rivers of blood and moonveil users. Now keep downvoting me and then get on with your task of L3 R1 L3 R1 L3 R1 L2's, this community needs more clowns like yall to get laughed at.

                                        This sword has one of the most in-depth move-sets I think I've ever seen in the Souls series!

                                        Try the following: crouch, R1, crouch, R1, crouch, R1, crouch, R1, crouch, R1, crouch, R1, crouch, R1, crouch, R1 [REPEAT]

                                        If you're feeling extra frisky, try one of the following Ashes of War: Royal Knight's Resolve, Royal Knight's Resolve, or Royal Knight's Resolve.

                                        In reality, I'm saddened that our strength builds have been put in a position where this is actually considered a 'solution'.

                                          I love how all the katana users will come on this page and cry about the crouch pokes being “op” as they repeatedly spam corpse piler/transient moonlight

                                            This thing was too big to be called a sword. Too big, too thick, too heavy, and too rough, it was more like a large hunk of iron

                                              I think there is a bug with this sword...or at the least the one I'm using... Every-time I swing and it hits anything at all... CLANG...sounds like a frying pan....everytime???

                                                Who would’ve thought a giant sharpened slab of iron would be so beautiful in combat?


                                                Guts did. And he couldn’t have been more right.

                                                  DAE think that this is the worst iteration of greatsword visually? The blade and guard just look way too thick/chunky, it sorta lost the profile of the Dragonslayer despite being a reference to it :/

                                                    I wish it wasn't this ugly and didn't clip through every armors. I made a few weapons when I learnt blender, for a mod in Kenshi, and I swear that the quality was similar. This feels like a proof of concept tutorial for blender on youtube... why so ugly.

                                                      Well of course everyone uses this...its one of two collosal greatswords a pure strength can actually use, cause someone thought requiring 20 points of int or faith on any onty cgs was a good idea

                                                        Lightning Ram ash of war is really good on this specially vs BHS as you can end LR in a quick poke when your opponent learn the base distance of LR and not take the poke reach into account. I highly recommend it for my fellow invaders.

                                                          Lol all the butthurt guys on this page, who never learned how to reaction roll is hilarious. That’s all you gotta do. This weapon is incredible, and I hope it never changes. People will complain about crouch poke, and then think BHS, or ROB is perfectly fine. Go back to the circus why don’t you.

                                                          • I thought people were overhyping this with Lion's Claw but when I tried it daaaamn, it was kinda insane. I was killing endgame bosses in like 10-15 seconds fr. Really good if you only spam the ash of war and crouch pokes cuz the normal attacks still feel slow af.

                                                                According to pvp youtubers/streamers, this is the only weapon you're allowed to use without getting hate, lol

I use this weapon all the time and refrain from BHS or crouchpoke. The fact that you cannot parry a single one of its attacks 2h actually makes it pretty good if you're not swinging away wildly and predictably. I'll still be enjoying it well after any nerfs. Telling other people to get good bc they don't like fighting an actual busted weapon. SMH, you get good and stop relying on broken **** for once scrubs. It's getting nerfed.

                                                                  • Anonymous

                                                                    • Anonymous

                                                                      Everyone calling this the Guts sword is usually referring to Dragon Slayer his main weapon usually seen in depiction right before and after acquiring the Berserk armor but I don't think thats the sword this one resembles. This sword is more or less inspired by the visual appearance his first blade used not Dragon Slayer. It was the sword seen during the Golden Age arc up until the God Hand appeared before Griffith which is where that sword broke. Still a cool sword and one of the strongest weapons in game. Max upgraded to +25 and getting it an A STR scaling with the heavy affinity I got it up to 1,416 AR using a combination of the Ritual Sword Talisman, Golden Vow and Flame, Grant me Strength while two handing it. Without all the buffs two handing it had it sitting at an AR of 963 I believe. Really great for pure STR builds and it's attack animation with dodge rolling or Bloodhound Step while holding forward on the analog stick is a super fast thrust that you can abuse to high hell despite its other slow swings. Compared to other colossal weapons and swords this one stands above all others in terms of raw phys damage. I know other wepaons have better advantages in elemental and status effects but as I said as a PURE STR build this one is the best.

                                                                      • Anonymous

                                                                        I lied I said this scaled B on INT as magic affinity at +25 but I was a damn fool and posted when I wasn’t at home and remembered incorrectly.
                                                                        However after testing, this is still more damage (and probably a better move set) than the watchdog sword at 60 int and 32 str with magic affinity. Attributed to its higher base damage. The other may pull ahead later.

                                                                        • Anonymous

Equip that talisman that recovers health on critical hit, and you can block a hit, do a guard counter, and recover the small health damage you received on riposte

                                                                          • Anonymous

However, fire is wonderful to achieve a higher AR at lower levels when people don't have more optimized absorption.

                                                                            • Anonymous

                                                                              With the increases Patch 1.04 gave to this (and other) weapon's blocking stats, it is now actually quite good at blocking. It beats Small Shields in Guard Boost and Physical Block, with a Guard Boost on par with the Banished Knight's Shield. Adding ANY Infusion, even Heavy/Keen/Quality, will lower the Guard Boost of the Greatsword, but even then it is strong enough to effectively block monsters and some boss attacks on a reasonbly tanky build with good Endurance (30+). Blocking the last hit of a combo and responding with a two-handed Guard Counter works well, and I imagine in PVP it will be difficult to take advantage of, but useful nonetheless, however I haven't tested it any myself.
