Cleave is a Weapon Action. This action is available to characters that are proficient in and are wielding Battleaxes, Halberds, Greataxes, or Greatswords in their main hand.


Swing your weapon in a large arc to attack up to 3 enemies at once. They each take half the damage your weapon usually deals.




  • Cleave only reduces the damage from your weapon damage dice and your Strength modifier. Flat damage bonus effects such as from Great Weapon Master or Rage are not reduced.
  • If there are more than 3 enemies in the attack area, this action targets the 3 closest enemies.
  • Cleave does not hit friendly targets.
