Big guys usually have big weapons.
This shit ruined both guts and the manga
Guts turned from Batman to Ironman
he's so strong that using a smaller sword wouldn't actually give him better leverage, mobility, speed, or striking power due to some high end limit on physics or something. So he just uses the largest, heaviest implement possible to carry without it having to be incredibly inconvenient.

Help, I have no idea what to do next.
Big sword? What are you talking about? That thing is too big to be called a sword. Too big, too thick, too heavy and too rough. It's more like a large hunk of Iron.
because he can swing it hard enough to go through several people at once, instead of wasting time swordfighting. Gatts is all about being direct.
Later on the giant sword is the only one he can use because it's infused with so much blood it banishes the evil spirits coming after him every night.
When he was a child soldier, the only weapons available for him were adult-sized swords. To shota Guts, these were comparable to the greatswords he later used. So as a child he was always accustomed to using a weapon larger than himself and he stuck with that through adulthood. Eventually he got so ridiculously strong that he was able to swing the Dragon Slayer around, and he is attached to the weapon to the point where he won't use any other arms unless he absolutely has to.
