Best Elden Ring Colossal Dex Weapons

Looking for more mobility using heavy weapons? Check out our guide to find out the best Colossal Dex weapons in Elden Ring.

Elden Ring features a plethora of different types and classes of weapons. With the recent Colosseum update, several players are choosing Colossal weapons to eliminate their player enemies. As swinging these heavy weapons can be slightly slow, you might be looking for higher Dexterity stats. You can use weapons that scale with higher Dex attributes for more agility and mobility during combat. But which one to choose? Check out our guide on the best Colossal Dex weapons in Elden Ring to find out.


Best Colossal Dex Weapons in Elden Ring

Here are the best Colossal weapons that scale with higher dexterity attributes or stats:

  • Prelate’s Inferno Crozier
  • Duelist Greataxe
  • Rotten Greataxe
  • Golem’s Halberd

So, let’s look into these Colossal Dex weapons in more detail:

Prelate’s Inferno Crozier

Here’s a Colossal hammer weapon that primarily deals with Strength and Dexterity attributes. It is a pretty great weapon for strong melee attacks that can be buffed with enchantments. You can infuse any compatible Ashes of War, Consumables, and Magic to further upgrade the Prelate’s Inferno Crozier weapon. While its Dexterity scales at E, you can use a Black Whetblade to change its affinity. As you upgrade it to Keen +25, you can get a massive physical damage output of 354. This would increase its Dex scaling at the B tier.


Default Weapon Skill: Prelate’s Charge

Duelist Greataxe – Best Colossal Dex Weapon

Here’s a Colossal weapon that was used by the Duelists who were exiled from the Colosseum in the past. The Duelist Greataxe is best for strong and slashing melee attacks. If you are looking to increase its Dexterity, you can go for two main choices. You can focus on increasing this Colossal weapon’s damage output with high Dex attributes. Or you can get status build-ups like Cold, Poison, and Blood, and increase its dex scaling. Speaking of the former, you can get a B scaling by upgrading it to Keen +25. Alternatively, you can go for the status build-ups to improve its dex scaling to B with relatively lesser damage output. So, here are the damage stats for each upgrade:

  • Keen +25: 360 Phy Damage
  • Cold +25: 295 Phy Damage (153 Cold)
  • Poison +25: 352 Phy Damage (138 Poison)
  • Blood +25: 352 Phy Damage (120 Bleed)

Default Weapon Skill: Endure


Rotten Greataxe

Similar to the Duelist Greataxe, this colossal weapon was also used by the exiled Duelists. The Rotten Greataxe causes up to 56 Scarlet Rot Buildup. This weapon’s dexterity scales at D tier. But by upgrading it with other affinities, you can improve its scaling as well as damage output. You can use the Black Whetblade with other Enchantments to change its affinity. So, here are all the damage stats for every upgrade:

  • Keen +25: 345 Phy Damage
  • Quality +25: 321 Phy Damage
  • Cold +25: 337 Phy Damage (153 Cold, 65 Scarlet Rot)
  • Poison +25: 337 Phy Damage (138 Poison, 65 Scarlet Rot)
  • Blood +25: 337 Phy Damage (120 Blood Loss)

As you upgrade the Rotten Greataxe with any of these affinities, its dexterity will scale to B Tier.

Default Weapon Skill: Endure

Golem’s Halberd

The Golem’s Halberd can deal with a significant amount of Physical damage against your enemies. Its strong attack uses the sweeping moveset of Great Spears. Although its Strength and Dex scales at D, you can upgrade it using the Black Whetblade. Aside from the Ashes of War, you can choose other alternatives to change its affinity. We recommend upgrading it to Quality +25 to scale both of its stats to B tier. Here are the damage stats you can get for every upgrade:

  • Keen +25: 359 Phy Damage
  • Quality +25: 313 Phy Damage

You can also go for Cold, Poison, and Blood Loss Build-ups. But upgrading them does not increase the Dexterity scaling. So, if you are looking for a powerful Colossal Dex weapon build, we suggest upgrading it to Keen +25.

Default Weapon Skill: Charge Forth

Make note that you can use Smithing Stones to upgrade all the above weapons. In addition to the above weapons, several other Colossal weapons can scale with Dexterity.

Because it all depends on your playstyle, class type, and experience. So, we leave the rest of the decision to you.
