In the Third edititon Player's Guide the most damaging two-handed weapons that a Troll can use are also usable by Humans. Kind of pointless being three times as heavy and half agains so tall if you are limited to the weapons of the small ones.

Are there bigger weapons in other books?

You could ask another question as to how to create such weapons in-system. –  Sardathrion Nov 20 '13 at 11:13
    
What about two-handed weapons for obsidimen? –  Sardathrion Nov 20 '13 at 11:15
    
In 3. Obsidimen and Troll can use weapons of size 7, but there is actually only one of them, and it does less damage than most size 6 weapons. –  András Nov 20 '13 at 11:20

I think there are none. Looking at the First edition, the fact that Humans can use the same weapons as Trolls seems to be intentional.
Illogical but probably more balanced.

The big advantage for trolls is that they can use larger weapons in one hand, allowing them to use a large weapon and also get a shield. Makes them super durable while still keeping damage up.
