Elden Ring: Axes Tier List
The best of the Axes
This axe helps in initiating the bleed status in Elden Ring. It has sizeable damage inflicting capability and players can hit enemies multiple times to continue the bleed effect. However, this axe will break eventually, so you may want to have a backup handy.
This axe is filled with a War Cry ability and players can use this weapon to show off their great strength. The presence of the previously mentioned skill enhances the damage dealt with enemies too.
A simple axe that does the job with brute force. It does not have any special powers. Moreover, the absence of sharp, damaging edges will hinder the players in many situations. However, the axe can still be helpful against huge enemies with maximum power damage needed.
This axe is most useful due to its stunning side effect. It allows players to call upon three skeletons during battles, who deal massive amounts of damage. Though the base power of the axe is not great, this nifty ability more than makes up for it.
Another axe has some hidden gems inside while using it. Players can track enemies on the move and the axe can travel long distances, which is always beneficial. Therefore, the best places to use this axe would be to fight indoor battles and obviously, on the move against enemies.

The best of the Greataxes
Axe of Godrick
This greataxe has a huge amount of base damage alongside a suitable weapon skill. It is a great weapon for players to inflict serious amounts of damage over a relatively small period.
Crescent Moon Axe
The axe will make players susceptible to taking more damage from monsters. Therefore, it is clear that this axe is not at par with other axes of its kind. However, once you upgrade the axe, its base damage will increase relevant to the damage output. Nevertheless, this axe makes good use when it reaches this point.
This axe can be found with any blacksmith in the game. Players will find that this axe is not too great in any stats. However, the only positive is the critical hit weight it deals with enemies. Needless to say, players will have to keep upgrading the axe during the game. Its attacking power is directly relevant to the increase in player power over the game.
Great Omenkiller Cleaver
One of the greatest axes in Elden Ring across all tiers. The axe’s base damage is one of the best alongside the nice effect of inducing ‘bleed.’ Bleed is a great advantage to have in the game which players will make use of as they go on. Moreover, the art on this axe will also help in racking up attacks in a useful manner.
Players will find this axe quickly in Elden Ring, and it will remain a strong weapon for the entire game. Players must have Strength 30 to wield this, and it complements well as the game goes on. The art, Barbaric Roar, also increases the damage rating of the axe overall.
