Elden Ring Two-Handed Sword: Where to find the Zweihander?

Elden Ring


Elden Ring

Elden Ring takes place in the Lands Between, a fictional realm over which several demigods rule. It was previously ruled over by the immortal Queen Marika, who acted as keeper of the Elden Ring, a powerful force that manifested itself as the physical concept of order. When Marika shattered the Elden Ring and disappeared, her demigod children began fighting over pieces of the Ring in an event called The Shattering. Each demigod has a shard of the Ring called a Great Rune, which corrupts them with power. In the game, the player character is a Tarnished, one of a group of exiles from the Lands Between who are summoned back after the Shattering. The player must traverse the realm to repair the Elden Ring and become the Elden Lord.

Elden Ring Two-Handed Sword: Where to find the Zweihander?

One of the most popular weapons from Dark Souls games is back, it's an easy-to-use Colossal Sword (UGS) with great stats and fearsome moves. It was also used for the Giant Dad build. We explain in passing how to handle a two-handed weapon.

The Two-Handed Sword is present in force in Elden Ring , with everything that made its charm in previous titles, and more. This is by far your best option to use a colossal sword quickly during your adventures in the Underworld, since it is both very easy to obtain, inexpensive, with low requirements, at 19 strength and 11 dexterity for be handled with one hand , and formidable techniques, so all-in-one. We even love it so much that it has followed us throughout the story, and we killed the last boss with this fully upgraded weapon. Suffice to say that it is a safe bet.

Get the Zweihander

You can get this weapon only a few minutes after starting the game in theory if you are efficient, but wait until you have your mount and 3500 Runes in stock. Upon exiting the tutorial, travel south to reach the Tearful Peninsula (check our maps as needed). You have to go to the southwestern part of the area, to the Ascetic Merchant's Hut . At this price, it's an excellent deal. He is probably one of the best merchants in the game, since he has other highly desirable products. You should come back later with more runes to buy his Stoneblade Keys, his lantern (which saves you from having to hold a torch) and later still, the sacrificial branches, which will help you not to lose a large amount of runes by dying in a secluded corner.

Wield a two-handed weapon

Let's take this opportunity to re-explain a fundamental point of the gameplay, since this weapon is made to be wielded preferably with two hands, and it's not very intuitive, since it has been modified compared to Demon's Souls, Dark Souls and the other FromSoftware games. Now, if you want to wield a two-handed weapon, just pressing Y/Triangle is no longer enough. You have to press Y + RB or Triangle + R1 for the weapon in the right hand. Or, Y + LB or Triangle + L1 for the off-hand weapon, depending on the type of pad used.

  • Note in passing that this also allows you to change the weapon used on horseback, if you prefer to cast spells for example. You cannot wield a two-handed weapon while mounted.
  • It is also not possible to go from one to two hands in the Round Table .
