The Battle Axe is an axe in Dark Souls.

In-Game Description

Standard battle axe. Inflicts regular damage, making it effective in various situations.
Powerful attack due to its weight, but one wrong swing leaves the wielder open, so timing and proximity to the enemy must be judged carefully.

AvailabilityEdit

CharacteristicsEdit

Has a decent starting damage compared to some other axes in the game, but its average scaling may fall behind of, say, the Butcher Knife, after early or mid game if it's not properly upgraded. If the player does not hit anything while swinging it, he/she will be staggered, adding noticeable ending lag to the attack. For horizontal swings, the player is still staggered if the axe only hits at the very end of the swing arc.
