Axes in this game..

Are pretty dissapointing. Especially their moveset (which is my greatest gripe). IT's always a single swing. I miss the simular moveset to a longsword. Even 2 handed leaves much to be desired.

Sigh- just ranting

Black Knight Great Axe solves all your issues.

Indeed black knight great axe is easily my favorite weapon in the game

The one handed attack has a HUGE range and sweeping motion

The R2 attack is pretty beastly as well

You are correct, however, it's more "just my problem" that I really don't use great weapons. I like the smaller ones (longsword, battle axe...). I really don't see why they would have adjusted the moveset so much.

axe combos don't start unless you hit an enemy.

Canada's greatest weapon of mass destruction was celine dion and we sent her to the states and yet we still have to wear ear defenders.

Really? I started a game and made it to the first bell using a battle axe and never noticed this *testing

the battle axe's combo will only activate when hitting an enemy. not sure about other axes though.

I've been using the Gargoyle Tail Axe for fun, and that thing has some pretty crazy hitstun. I go two-handing that axe, and it literally makes it so I can wail on them until they're dead since they can't do crap to break out. It could be better, but I'm fine with this.

i use the great axe for tight spaces and haven't noticed any issues. i did notice that if you miss just roll back before the animation goes all the way through and you won't be left open as much
