Elden Ring is an action role-playing game set in the Lands Between. As such you will need the best weapons & armor to survive against the hordes of enemies. One of the class’s weapons that was decent but couldn’t keep up with other classes was the Colossal Weapons Class. They are humongous weapons that hit hard but equally as slow. But since the 1.04 Patch, Colossal Weapons got a huge buff overall. Some of their Weapon Skils got buffed as well and are pretty amazing. In this guide, I will show you the Best Colossal Weapons in Elden Ring after Patch 1.04.
Best Colossal Weapons in Elden Ring after Patch 1.04
In Elden Ring, a Colossal Weapon is classified as a group of Weapons that fall under Colossal Sword, Colossal Weapons, Great Sword, Great Hammer, Great Axe, Great Spear, and Halberd. The major changes done to them were:
- Increased physical block rate and guard boost.
- Increased the two-handed attack damage for Colossal Swords/Colossal Weapons. (Jump attacks not included)
- Increased physical block rate and guard boost
As such, now is the Best time to use the Colossal Weapons in Elden Ring. But which of the many ones are the best. Well see the list below and find out.
Giant-Crusher : One of the Best Colossal Weapons in Elden Ring
The Giant-Crusher is a Colossal Hammer that deals a ton of damage. It scales off of STR which makes it one of the best Colossal Weapons for Strength Builds. You will need 60 STR to wield it and the STR scaling is C. One unique aspect of the Giant-Crusher is that it has a unique Heavy attack for both one-handed and two-handed. You can infuse any Ash of War on it as well as set any affinity. If you apply the Troll’s Roar Ash of War and set the affinity to Occult, you are looking at some insane damage.
The Rotten Greataxe is a Colossal Axe that can be used in a lot of crafty ways. It scales off of STR & DEX is a very versatile weapon. The Weapon scales with E STR & D DEX while requiring 30 STR & 10 DEX. It comes with a Scarlet Rot passive which is useful in making some OP builds.

Fallingstar Beast Jaw
The Fallingstar Beast Jaw is one of those Colossal Weapons in Elden Ring that fits well with Mage builds. If you are a Wizard, Mage, or any build that has INT in your build then this weapon is for you. It primarily scales with D STR, D DEX, & E INT while requiring 34 STR, 12 DEX, & 20 INT. It has the Unique Weapon Skill: Gravity Bolt which cannot be replaced nor tweaked. Although it scales with INT, you are better-investing points into STR or DEX. But since your going to have a high INT as a Mage, it is not the best.
The Greatsword is a Colossal Sword that is famously used in creating Builds like the Guts Build in the game. Although it seems like a meme pick, don’t be mistaken as this is one of the best sweepers you can get. It primarily scales with C STR & E DEX while requiring 31 STR & 12 DEX. You can infuse any Ash of War on it as well as set any affinity. Its best affinity is on Heavy and any Ash of War of the Heavy kind works best on it. You can try out other affinities but the damage scale is best on Heavy.
This was all about the Best Colossal Weapons in Elden Ring after Patch 1.04. As of Patch 1.04, all Colossal Weapons are good to use. Find the weapon that suits your playstyle and go for it.
