An upgraded Faust forged from pristine-quality shadow steel. Its charge attacks are powerful enough to curse its wielder, but that hasn't stopped Devilites from treasuring these rare blades even more highly than their meager vacation time.
While Gran Faust's speed bar is much longer than Divine Avenger's, there is no significant speed difference. Data collected by players suggests that the Gran Faust's combo speed may be slightly slower than Divine Avenger.

A two-strike attack similar to other "heavy" swords. Only the 2nd hit has a chance of inflicting curse on the target.
The knight takes a small step back and takes a powerfully damaging swipe with the sword. The Gran Faust then emits a large sword-shaped energy beam which primes for a moment before flying forwards a fair distance before detonating. This beam travels through monsters and over gaps. Contact with the beam deals damage in addition to the detonation, although significantly less than the initial hit. The attack may inflict Curse for 40 seconds (without Curse resistances) on both the user and target.
The following damage values represent the weapon at its completed level, without any UV or bonus from other equipment, and listed as a range found from the first to last floor of each stratum.

|Gran Faust's alchemy path|
- While it is usually said that the Gran Faust speed bar is wrong, they are actually both wrong, and the actual speed of both is somewhere in between. For comparison, the Gran Faust bar is identical to the Leviathan Blade, while the Divine Avenger bar is the same as the Sudaruska bar. Both these swords are faster than the Sudaruska, and slower than the Leviathan Blade, which means that both bars are wrong.
- The Gran Faust was formerly carried by Tier 3 Phantoms, but it was changed to their pink Cutter.
- The Faust and Gran Faust are the only weapons in the game that inflict the Curse status.
