The player’s greed and carelessness can be heavily punished. These weapons will make your life a bit easier. After all, we cannot have you giving up so close to the finish line.
The Elden Beast is the final boss of Elden Ring. You have to fight Elden Ring directly after defeating Radagon of the Golden Order. This is a God boss locarted in the Stone Platform. It is the embodiment of the Elden Ring.
In terms of lore and story, the Elden Beast came to The Lands Between as a golden star ages before the events of the game. The Elden Beast is the vassal of The Greater Will, who is bound by the confines of space and time and cannot physically enter The Lands Between. The boss fight itself is visually stunning.
The best weapons for this fight are mentioned below alonng with why they made it on to our list:
1. Bloodhound’s Fang
- Physical Attack: 141
- Weight: 11.5
- Required: 18 STR, 17 DEX
- Scaling: STR – D, DEX – C
- Weapon Skill: Bloodhound’s Finesse
- Description: Curved greatsword with a gently undulating blade wielded by Bloodhound Knights.
A fearsome blade capable of brutal airborne attacks.
The Bloodhound’s Fang is a fan-favorite weapon, not just for the Elden Beast, but for the entire game. This is a Curved Greatsword that scales primarily with Strength and Dexterity and packs quite a heavy punch. The Bloodhound’s Fang is dropped by the Bloodhound Knight Darriwil, in Limgrave.
What makes the weapon special on top of phenomenal damage and aesthetic value is the weapon skill. Bloodhound’s Finesse is a special skill which allows the player to launch backwards with a somersault and rapidly follow up with a second attack.
For the price of 8 FP, players can use this against the Elden Beast not only to gain some distance when required but also to perform quick combo attacks. Moreover, the Bloodhound’s Fang causes Blood Loss buildup which is one of the most powerful Status Effects in Elden Ring.
All these factors make the Bloodhound’s Fang a splendid weapon for the final showdown in Elden Ring.

Some HP is restored upon defeating an enemy.
Next up, we have the Blasphemous Blade. This weapon is a beast against the Elden Beast. This is a Greatsword which deals exceptional damage and scales primarily with Strength, Dexterity, and Faith.
The Blasphemous Blade also deals additional Fire damage. To get the Blasphemous Blade, trade the Remembrance of the Blasphemous with Enia at Roundtable Hold.
Aside from being an awesome weapon, the special skill Taker’s Flames makes the Blasphemous Blade amazing for fighting the Elden Beast. For 30 FP, your blade is lit ablaze and steals 10% of your max HP along wth 150 flat HP on a hit.
Against a God in Elden Ring, this is an extremely useful skill. The consistent fire bonus is another plus. If you want a solid weapon against the Elden Beast, the Blasphemous Blade is a great pick.

- Required: 12 STR, 18 DEX, 20 ARC
- Scaling: STR – E, DEX – D, ARC – D
- Weapon Skill: Corpse Piler

A cursed weapon that has felled countless men.
When Mohg, the Lord of Blood, first felt Okina’s sword, and madness, upon his flesh, he had a proposal, to offer Okina the life of a demon, whose thirst would never go unsated.
On the lighter side of things, we have the powerful Rivers of Blood. This is a Katana that scales primarily with Strength, Dexterity, and Arcane. The Rivers of Blood is great for mid-range combat and deals both Slash and Pierce damage.
The scaling of this weapon was patched in an update. The weapon is dropped by Bloody Finger Okina Okina invades near the Church of Repose, found in the Eastern region of Mountaintops of the Giants.
This is a great weapon for the Elden Beast due to the range and the Blood Loss status buildup which will aid in annihiliating the Elden Beast in no time. This weapon is phenomenal for Arcane and Dexterity builds and the Blood Loss builup after invvesting some points in Arcaane is exceptional.
The Corpse Piler weapon skill is no joke either. After coating the blade in blood, a player can perform successive attacks quickly and build up significant Blood Loss while dealing great damage too. It is no wonder why the Rivers of Blood made it on our list.
- Physical Attack: 73
- Weight: 6.5
- Required: 12 STR, 18 DEX, 23 INT
- Scaling: STR – E, DEX – D, INT – C
- Weapon Skill: Transient Moonlight
- Description: Katana forged of glintstone.
Masterpiece of a Sellian swordsmith.
Light enwreathes the blade when sheathed, explaining its Moonveil moniker.
The next weapon on our list is another Katana. The Moonveil is a powerful blade that scales primarily with Strength, Dexterity, and Intelligence. This is a great option for Dexterity and Intelligence players not just for the Elden Beast but the entire game as well.
It can deal both Slash and Pierce damage and the weapon skill is extremely handy. The Moonveil can be obtained upon defeating the Magma Wyrm located in Gael Tunnel – Caelid.
The hype behind the Moonveil is no joke. The weapon skill Transient Moonlight, allows the player to sheathe their blade in a hip stance and draw it out at insanelty fast speed, firing off a beam of light along with it.
The light and melee damage are independent of one another and this weapon is great for quick slash damage at mid-range. The rapid attack speed combined with Blood Loss buidup make it ideal for a gargantuan boss like the Elden Beast.
5. Starscourge Greatsword
- Physical Attack: 129
- Weight: 20.0
- Required: 38 STR, 12 DEX, 15 INT
- Scaling: STR – D, DEX – D, INT – E
- Weapon Skill: Starcaller Cry
- Description: Curved greatswords of black steel wielded by General Radahn. A pair of weapons decorated with a lion mane motif.
Radahn earned considerable renown as the Starscourge in this youth, and it is said that it was during this time he engraved the gravity crest up these blades.
Ending off our list with this heavy boy, the Starscourge Greatsword is capable of bonking the Elden Beast into oblivion.
This is a Colossal Sword in Elden Ring that scales primarily with Strength, Dexterity, and Intelligence. To acquire the Starscourge Greatsword, trade the Remembrance of the Starscourge with Enia at Roundtable Hold.
Unlike most heavy weapons, the Starscourge Greatsword divides into two dual-wielded blades rather than being two-handed. In spite of this, you receive the two-handed bonus damage. The damage on the weapon is great and the Starcaller Cry weapon skill makes it more worthwhile for any airborne enemies.
The skill pulls in enemies and follows up with a devastating attack.
The damage, on top of this weapon being upgradable is exceptional and will perform extremely well against the Elden Beast. Maybe take it out for a swing.
