The Greatsword is one of the Weapons used in the game Brawlhalla. It was added in patch 4.03.

The Greatsword is a huge, powerful blade with a unique moveset for combos. Normally its attacks are slow and drawn out, however upon hitting an opponent its following attacks will be much faster.

Kit[]

The Greatsword moveset is unique as it is the first weapon to have opener, bridge, and closer attacks. These are light attacks that are performed depending on what move was performed prior.

A visual representation of all the possible moves from the Greatsword

Ground Attacks: Openers[]

Opener Attacks are light attacks that are performed at the beginning of any attack string.

Neutral Light Opener[]

The user swings the Greatsword upward, hitting enemies directly in front and above them.

Side Light Opener[]

The user pokes the Greatsword forward.

Down Light Opener[]

The user leans forward and slashes with the Greatsword.


Ground Attacks: Bridges[]

Bridge Attacks are light attacks that serve the purpose of adding an extra attack between an opener and a closer attack. They are performed by using a light attack after an opener, but only if the bridge attack was in a different direction than the opener. Visually, bridge attacks are indicated with a yellow slash effect.

Neutral Light Bridge (from Side Light)[]

While holding the Greatsword out, the user swings upward, quickly hitting enemies in front and above him. This reaches further than a Neutral Light opener.

This attack can only be performed after a Side Light opener.

Neutral Light Bridge (from Down Light)[]

The user brings the Greatsword to their front and swings upward, creating a slash that hits enemies in front of them. This reaches slightly further than a Neutral Light opener.

This attack can only be performed after a Down Light opener.

Side Light Bridge[]

The user leans in and pokes the Greatsword forward. This reaches further than a Side Light opener.

Down Light Bridge[]

The user sticks the Greatsword in the ground and slides forward.


Ground Attacks: Closers[]

Closer Attacks are light attacks that are much more hard hitting than opener and bridge attacks. They can be performed in several ways:

  • Attacking after an opener attack, using the same light attack as the opener attack
  • Using a light attack after a bridge attack
  • Gravity-Cancelling into a light attack

The closer attack will be different depending on what attack was performed before, giving each type of light attack (Neutral, Side, Down) 3 closer variants.

Visually, closer attacks are indicated with an orange slash effect.

Trivia[]

  • In 2020, the year this weapon was added, it was classified as the strongest weapon. That year, in BCX, nearly every player used Jaeyun, the only tournament-legal Greatsword Legend at the time, at some point. In patch 5.02, Greatsword recieved the biggest nerf any weapon had ever had, as well as nerfs to a few of Jaeyun's and Mako's sigs.
