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.

      Because of the weight typically this sword is worse than the zweihander since you need to invest alot of points into endurance. If you are willing however to go beyond it does deal a hunk of damage.

        On PC, I am not able to loot the chest because there is nothing to loot. (Have not picked up the sword before, reloaded the area, no change, but the chest is able to be opened again.) Anyone else having this issue as well?

            I would have liked this more if it wasn't for 3 specific reasons. 1: the 1and 2 handed movesets should've been different, 2: the game just hates you if decided to go pure strength and 3: the damage sucks unless you use the crouch poke. The 3 goods about it are 1: you can get it as soon as you get Torrent, 2: the stance break is good and 3: you can become Tarkus

              I miss the DS3 version of this weapon with the unique vertical moveset. The second attack of its R1 chain lifted the sword from the ground in front of you and drove it to the ground directly behind you creating a hit box in both places. This was awesome against larger enemies when the attack would hit twice and was epic to get to a sandwhich position between enemies and smash on both sides. It was one of the most fun weapons to use, along with the Bloodborne hunter axe.

                            No matter how good this is in pvp, in a game like Elden Ring it's just too mundane to waste an ancient smithing stone. I rather go less tryhard and more fun.

                              I wish we got the DS2/DS3 vertical two handed moveset for this and other Collossal Swords instead of the DS1 moveset. I wish if it was one handed its horizontal and if its two handed its vertical, wouldve been so nice.

                                I used a zweihander during a long time, and oh boi is this one way more powerfull, that's disgusting. When you're against difficult bosses like malenia ng+3 (I stopped levelling at 150) you really need all the help you can get, and one of those big boy really makes the difference.

                                • what's the difference between the crouch poke and the roll r1? does it have higher poise? more damage? was it recently changed to be the same move? or are people just unaware of our lord and savior roll r1?

                                    It's so long (that's what she said), longer than other colossal weapons, and the damage is insane. love this long heavy stick

                                    • This is the single most busted weapon in the game, if we don't count Fingerprint, or really greatshield shield poke with most greatshields. This just happens to be the longest, highest damaging ultra great sword. The crouch poke has tons of hyper armor, range, counter damage, speed, stun, and tracking. But if this was it, it would still not be as bad as dual pikes, nagis, or vykes. But it is way worse. Due to crouch buffering, crouch-run recovery canceling, and animation blending this weapon has the ability to true 50/50 vortex, reaction trade into anything, mindlessly win neutral over and over again with nearly unreactable attacks and wiggles that make even opponents with nerves of steel panic roll. It also is a normal weapon, meaning it has a free ash slot and is infusable. Then, to top it all off, it has a built in greatshield, so whenever your opponent actually lands a hit on you the damage you take is reduced to almost nothing. Most of this is true for ugs in general, but GUGS takes it to a whole other level. GUGS is the pinnacle of balance.

                                          how can you call this a greatsword? its far to thick and long to be a sword, its more like a clump of iron or something

                                            Vykes war spear > UGS crouching r1.

                                            Fact is, ER is dominated by the thrusting/poke meta. Ignore RoB which is just a noob stomper. But any weapon that does not have the range and thrust in moveset is severely disadvantaged. Nerfing crouch r1 would require some massive buff to its other move set

                                              The Berserk references are strong with the Greatsword and its location. Truly, what a great manga it is! Time to put your grasses on because nothing will go wrong...

                                                    i cant decide between this or the giant crusher........they are both amazing though so i guess it just depends if i need range or more damage, whats a good 2 hander to use sombers on? im thinking of trying ghizas wheel or marais executioner sword....too many damned weapons i can't decide!

                                                    • Anonymous

                                                      It’s the MVP for me. I’m not trying to mess around with not having range. Having range is awesome.

                                                      When you upgrade it and level STR it deals really solid damage. So you go through bosses without taking too long, but it’s not just their healthbar is gone suddenly.

                                                      No need for a shield, this is a good shield, and with two handing you get all the benefits of the weapon.

                                                      You can fire infuse it and use flame shrouding tear for more damage once STR soft cap is reached.

                                                      Heavy so it requires more endurance, but I just leveled my character a lot and that turned out great. Because I did a lot of summoning, so I got a lot better at the bosses, and leveling my character just makes a huge difference for attacking and survivability.

                                                      Also, the higher level I am the less I get summoned by a host that has low HP.

                                                      When I went through the mines for smithing stones I actually used a +0 mace because it did more damage to the enemies than the UGS

                                                      I tried out some other weapons before, saw people using this weapon and it looked nice.

                                                      Yup, definitely enjoyed my play through with this one

                                                        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.

                                                                  • "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."
