- Main article: Weapon Types (Dark Souls III)
Ultra Greatswords are a weapon type in Dark Souls III. Ultra Greatswords, are large two-handed swords that are characterized by their long sweeping attacks and crushing over head blows. With the exception of the Astora Greatsword, these weapons tend to be much heavier than their Greatsword cousins and often require higher stat investment. Depending on the sword you choose, it may have various Strength or dexterity requirements and tend to scale better with quality (strength and dexterity) builds. It should also be noted that investment in Vitality is recommended with these weapons due to their increased weight unless the player chooses to wear lighter Armor pieces.
