The Elden Ring Fire Giant boss fight is a big, tough battle against a powerful flammable titan, one of the trickier (and bigger) bosses in Elden Ring. Fighting the Fire Giant successfully will require careful knowledge of his attack patterns, using his long reach and bulk against him, as well as applying all of the lessons you've learned across the Lands Between so far. It also doesn't help that the Giant comes in two phases, each one vastly different from each other. We'll explain how to beat the Elden Ring Fire Giant here, including strategies, tips, tricks, weaknesses and rewards, and even how you can cheese the boss fight.

To beat the Elden Ring Fire Giant, players have to master the essential quality of evasion, if they haven't already. The Giant's attacks are brutal, doing massive damage and shattering defenses to the point where they can kill many players in a single strike, but they also tend to be fairly telegraphed, and some of them are slow.

Any general rules we give beyond that wouldn't apply, as the Fire Giant behaves very differently in Phase 1 and Phase 2, sacrificing mobility in the second phase for new area-of-effect attacks. Fortunately we'll take you through both phases below, as well as what you can do to prepare for the fight as a whole.

Fire Giant Tips and Tricks to prepare

How to beat the Elden Ring Fire Giant boss fight (3)

Going up against the Elden Ring Fire Giant boss fight will require a fair amount of preparation even before you're inside the arena itself, especially considering that the Giant starts too far away for you to hurt, but his enormous reach and ranged attacks can devastate you. Here's some basic tips and tricks to read and keep in mind before going into the boss fight itself.

  • The recommended level for the Fire Giant should be at least 110, with weapons at least at +18 or higher. He's still achievable at less than this, but you'll definitely struggle. If you're not at this point, maybe go grind and explore until you are.
  • The Fire Giant is weak to Slashing damage if you have it - and resistant to Fire, Holy and most status effects. He's also got a generally huge amount of health; this'll be a battle of endurance.
  • There's two entrances to this boss fight - chains leading over the arena to fog doors on both the West and Northern sides. It doesn't really matter which one you take, honestly.
  • If you've been following Iron Fist Alexander's questline, you'll be able to summon him as an ally NPC for this fight. However, this is a double-edged sword - if you summon him or another player, it'll disable Torrent, who can be very useful in this fight, especially for closing the initial gap between you and the giant.
  • If you're summoning Ash Spirits, try and summon one with as much health as possible. They really struggle to avoid the Giant's attacks, so any glass cannons will die far sooner than you'd like.
  • Unsurprisingly, the Giant does a lot of Fire Damage, as well as Strike damage. If you're stuck between two armor sets, pick the one that'll help you with those.
  • Before going in, try mixing up a Wondrous Physick Flask that'll help you tank fire and damage generally.
  • Have Torrent ready to go in your quick-use menu. When the Giant suddenly rolls or backs away, it helps to have your horse ready to go to close the gap before he can strike you.

These are all pretty broad suggestions, but this isn't a boss with easy exploits (beyond one that can be done in Phase 2 for Faith builds, which we'll discuss afterwards). Now that you're ready to go, we'll explain what to do when you're in.

Fire Giant Phase 1

The Fire Giant is huge and capable of striking you with his giant bin lid from staggering distance even without using ranged attacks, so much like with Radahn, your first challenge is simply narrowing the gap between you and him without getting killed. Things will get easier as you get close, as we'll explain below.

  • At a distance, the Fire Giant will stick his shield in the ground and create a wide impact wave that moves quickly towards the player. Your best chance to survive is either to roll at the moment it hits you, or to dismount Torrent (if on horseback) and use the moment of invincibility to survive.
  • The Giant will also swing the shield, sweeping it across the ground - this always has bigger range than you think. Double jump up over it if on Torrent, or combat roll at the last second if not.
  • Your goal for the whole of Phase 1 should be to get between the Giant's feet. As dangerous as it is here, he can't do his worst attacks at this short range, and will often try to back away to line you up for the big shield strikes. Don't give him the chance!
  • One of the Giant's ankles has a manacle on it that protects him from attacks, but the other one does not. Target that unprotected one! Once you do enough damage, the covering on it will break, staggering the Giant briefly. All attacks done to that ankle now do slightly increased damage (and besides, the manacled one is still protected).
  • Once the covering breaks, the Giant will get new attacks based around launching fire.
    • One of these is slow, following the player before eventually exploding when it gets too close. Lure it in so it prepares to explode, then immediately flee so you're not caught in the blast.
    • The other fireball is fired from the Giant's palms, a nightmarishly fast and damaging attack with little warning. Roll to the side the moment you see him raise one hand towards you.
  • Sorcerers and mages should have at least one fast-firing damage spell, as the Giant's aggressive patterns mean that you won't usually have time to fire off anything more elaborate, at least not without a summon distracting him.
  • Area-of-effect sorceries and incantations that fire multiple attacks over a wide area can really hurt the Giant, as he's big enough to catch most, if not all, of the attacks. Rotten Breath and the Flame of Frenzy are good examples of what we're talking about.

Though challenging, this is arguably the easier of the two Phases, as the Giant's patterns are generally predictable, not to mention you won't be suffering from the exhaustion and attrition that afflicts players near the end of longer battles. Get the Fire Giant down to half health, and there'll be a cutscene cinematic that announces Phase 2. Break a leg!

Fire Giant Phase 2

How to beat the Elden Ring Fire Giant boss fight (5)

The second Phase of the Fire Giant boss fight is very different. In the cinematic, the Giant's leg breaks under his own bulk, and he snaps the entire limb off in a moment of pained rage. Burning it in front of him, this awakens the second, cyclopic face on his abdomen - and despite being wounded, it definitely seems like two heads are better than one.

As mentioned, here the Giant has sacrificed mobility and his enormous reach for area-of-effect attacks and harder-to-predict attack patterns. He'll be using a lot more Fire now, and players will have to play more cautiously so as not to get squashed in a thrashing, titanic tantrum.

  • Before the strategy was to go for the ankle, and little has changed. The Giant will now spend the fight kneeling or crawling, and though he has a weak spot on his left arm, that puts you in the firing line for all his worst attacks. Instead, stay on his backside and chip at his hindquarters.
  • If you are in front of him, don't get too far away! His ranged attacks are deadly and you don't want to give him reason to use them.
  • The Giant has a nasty habit of rolling unpredictably, repositioning himself in a sudden flurry of motion that can squash players in his way. Again, staying behind him should ensure he never catches you in this, but your best chance for survival if he does come at you is simply to hold up a shield and hope it absorbs the worst of it.
  • The Giant has his two fireball attacks from before, but also two new moves - one from above, and one from below.
    • If the Giant leans forward and presses both palms to the ground, you'll see the area around him begin to burn. These fiery patches are warnings that those sections of ground are about to explode. You can evade them if you're careful, though they last for a while, and it's possible to get caught by another attack while stepping around them. Safer to back away out of this danger zone altogether.
    • If the Fire Giant roars and leans back, his stomach mouth is about to erupt and shoot fire that comes raining down around him. Rather than run away, actually get underneath his arched back - you can damage him safely from here.
  • Though he no longer has the shield to hit you with, the Giant will still perform all manner of strikes, swipes and grabs at targets in front of him. All of these can be dodged with careful rolling, but tend to be more sudden and less telegraphed than his Phase 1 melee attacks. Be wary.

Get him down to zero health, and you'll be done with this brute, earning yourself a reputation as a genuine giantslayer. This leaves you free passage to head to the Forge of the Giants past him - though was there an easier way?

Elden Ring Fire Giant cheese methods

How to beat the Elden Ring Fire Giant boss fight (6)

For those who're finding the eighty-foot fiery mythic monster a bit hard to beat… well, that's fair. It used to be that the Giant could be lured into falling out of the arena, but recent patches seem to have thrown up invisible walls to prevent him from bumbling his way to his death. There does appear to be a method based around leaping out of the arena yourself back down to the other side of the North entrance by using Torrent's double-jump, then luring him over to the Northeast side and firing ranged shots at him from the raised cliffs to the West. However, we haven't tried this method for ourselves, and can't confirm if it still works (especially considering it seems very likely to be patched soon).

Fortunately, there is a simpler, if slightly riskier method: Swarm of Flies. Odd as it sounds, the community has discovered that this Incantation, found in a cave near the Palace Approach Ledge-Road Site of Grace outside Mohgwyn Palace, can absolutely devastate the Giant. It requires 11 Faith and 20 Arcane to cast at its full potential, which you'll need to get above the simple 16 Arcane requirement.

Put simply, Swarm of Flies casts a homing insectile swarm that flies towards the target to inflict damage and the bleed status effect. The damage done by the swan is negligible, but the bleed builds up incredibly quickly, suddenly doing huge damage to the Fire Giant. Equip the spell and play pure defensive evasion while casting it as much as possible at the Fire Giant. After a few casts, you'll suddenly notice the brute's health beginning to plummet. Combine it with the legendary Bloodhound Step skill on your weapon to avoid his attacks, and you should bring him down surprisingly efficiently.

Killing the Fire Giant will net the player 180000 Runes, as well as a special Remembrance of the Fire Giant, which can be traded in at the Roundtable Hold for either the Giant's Red Braid (a mainly Faith-scaling whip that does additional Fire damage), or the Incantation: Burn, O Flame!, which creates randomly placed pillars of flame that erupt from around the caster.

Both of these are solid choices, though the Braid is a little less situational. The high FP cost of the Incantation means you need to use it carefully, either to clear enemies around you or to do big damage to large bosses who will be hit by as many pillars as possible. Still, there's no obvious wrong answer here, so pick whichever one fits your build or just seems more fun.

DO NOT CHEESE FIRE GIANT HERE IS HOW YOU CAN EASILY BEAT HIM

Source: Windows Central (Image credit: Source: Windows Central)It's not unusual for bosses in FromSoftware's fantasy RPGs to be several times larger than you are, but none of them are quite as big as the colossal Fire Giant that you have to fight at the end of the Mountaintops of the Giants area.. And between his massive health pool, devastating physical attacks, and dangerous fire magic, the Fire Giant also happens to be one of Elden Ring's toughest bosses.. Source: Windows Central (Image credit: Source: Windows Central)Phase 1 of the Fire Giant fight is the hardest of the two phases, so if you can get through Phase 1, things will get easier from there.. The Fire Giant will eventually begin using fire attacks.. Source: Windows Central (Image credit: Source: Windows Central)When Phase 2 begins, the Fire Giant's left leg will break and the Fire Giant will rip it off, burning it in his hands as the "second face" on his torso opens.. In this phase, the Fire Giant shoots two fire orbs or fireballs at a time.

But there’s one extremely large, cantankerous, and spicy obstacle in between you and the forge you’ll use to burn the Erdtree in the Mountaintops of the Giants — the Fire Giant boss fight.. However, you shouldn’t spend the whole fight on horseback as it makes Fire Giant’s attacks difficult to dodge.. This is where a lot of players begin to struggle, as locking onto Fire Giant’s left foot makes it difficult to see what he’s doing and making it way too hard to dodge his attacks.. In addition, during this phase, Fire Giant will shoot fast-moving fireballs that you have to dodge, and summon fiery sunspots all over the ground.. As with all large bosses that let you ride Torrent in this game, you have to ask yourself whether you’d rather have co-op help, or the ability to ride your horse during the Fire Giant fight.. Torrent can be useful for closing the gap between you and the boss, but you can’t rely on him, as Fire Giants attacks are more difficult to dodge while on horseback.

Fire Giant Overview Location Mountaintops of the Giants Optional No Summons Players and Spirit Ashes Drops 180,000 Runes Remembrance of the Fire Giant. If you successfully slay the last known Fire Giant in the Lands Between, you will be handsomely rewarded with 180,000 Runes and Remembrance of the Fire Giant, which is exchangeable with Enia at the Roundtable Hold.. The Fire Giant will plant his giant shield into the snow, then swiftly fling a line of snow out at the player.. Fire Giant ignites his hands in fire then launches swift-moving flame projectiles at the player.. Fire Giant will tear off his left leg at the start of the second phase of the fight, eliminating the weak spot from the first phase and moving it to his left forearm, which is somewhat awkward to hit for ground melee users.. However, every attack from the Fire Giant from this point onward will be forward-facing attacks, so try sticking to his side or back to get in multiple hits before he attempts rolling around to face you.. After a few successful hits, you can break Fire Giant's guard, then attack the large eye on his stomach for more significant damage.

If you want to find other bosses that lurk nearby, take a look at our Elden Ring boss locations guide to find every boss in the game.. To reach the Mountaintops, you must go to Leyndell..

To avoid this, try dashing out of range before the Fire Giant starts dragging the plate through the snow.. Fortunately, you can avoid many of these by simply standing by the left ankle like before.. While you might notice that hits to the arms deal more damage, we recommend avoiding the front side of the Fire Giant .. These orbs deal a lot of damage and tend to track for a long time, making them hard to avoid.

In this Elden Ring Fire Giant boss guide, we'll tell you if you need to fight it, how to beat it, and what to do after you've beaten it.. Considering how challenging the Mountaintops of the Giants zone is in general, you should spend a little bit of time exploring it and powering up your weapon and overall level to stand a better chance at taking down the Fire Giant.. The Fire Giant boss fight is not actually hard, considering where he falls in the game.. Fire Giant boss fight phase one The first phase is the hardest of the two, believe it or not.. In this phase, the Fire Giant has a tendency to roll to his left (and sometimes to the front towards you) , which will almost assuredly kill you if you’re on the wrong side of that.. When the red threads on his left leg break and the splint comes off, the Fire Giant will gain a few more attacks .. When you see him about to slam the ground, roll away to avoid the coming fire sprouts and don’t get close until the attack is over.. Fire Giant boss fight phase two The Fire Giant is now on his knees, and that’s how he’s going to remain for the rest of this phase.. Although the Fire Giant is less mobile in this phase, his attacks have wide arcs that are more easily avoided on horseback..

The Elden Ring Fire Giant boss is the largest enemy in the game, making for an epic fight against a boss with tonnes of HP and a large attack radius.. So, if you need some help to get through the Elden Ring Fire Giant boss, we've got you covered.. For the Fire Giant boss, the Elden Ring Black Knife Tiche is a good choice of summon due to its high damage and mobility, which will let it dodge the majority of the attacks.. Time your dodge just as the Fire Giant slams down the plate, and you will avoid the damage.. With the Fire Blast move, he will launch a fire projectile at you which can be dodged just as it gets close, but staying near his legs will allow you to avoid it.. As long as you are dealing constant damage to the giant's left leg in this phase, you should be fine, and after the rope is broken he will stay still for a small period so you can get in free damage.. That's all for our walkthrough of the Elden Ring Fire Giant boss, and now you know his moveset and the best way to deal with him so you can carry on through the story of the game..

Equip fire resistance: The Magma Wyrm will cover a lot of the arena in lava during the course of a fight.. Use the room you have: The Magma Wyrm Makar boss fight takes place in an enormous cavern, giving you plenty of room to maneuver.. The other Magma Wyrm boss fights take place in much smaller arenas, forcing you to get up close with the Magma Wyrm early.. © FromSoftware Be patient, and prepare to dodge: All of the Magma Wyrm’s attacks are slow, high-damage moves with a lot of windup.. As soon as you see the Magma Wyrm begin an animation, stop attacking and prepare to dodge when you see the swing come.. Be wary of two-phase attacks: A few of the Magma Wyrm’s attacks with its blade see it attack forward, then drag its blade back towards it along the ground.. The regular Magma Wyrms share their moveset with Magma Wyrm Makar’s first phase.. Lava charge: The Magma Wyrm charges in a line, spewing lava as it goes.. Tail spin: The Magma Wyrm raises its front half up, then spins 180°, Swinging its tail and weapon.. Starting at around 50% HP, phase two of the Magma Wyrm Makar boss fight sees it coat its weapon in lava for extra damage and begin standing upright.

As you progress through the Mountaintop of the Giants in Elden Ring, you’ll meet the Fire Giant, a towering foe with some devastatingly powerful attacks to boot.. If you can topple the giant, you’ll walk away with a ton of Runes, as well as the precious Remembrance of the Fire Giant.. In the first phase, the Fire Giant will walk around with a shield, which he will commonly try to hit you with.. Below is a list of every attack the Fire Giant has in its first phase, and how you should react to them:. Simply move out behind the giant to avoid this move.. Shield attacks: The Fire Giant will often try to hit you with his shield.. Jump slam: Similar to the shield slam move, the giant takes a leap before slamming its shield on the ground.. Dash attack: The giant will position the shield behind him before charging forward and attempting to hit you by extending his shield out in front of him.. Fire pillars: The giant will kneel and summon many pillars of fire around him.. Stay to the side or behind the giant to avoid them, or roll through these attacks if you find yourself in from of the giant.. Roll: Similar to the previous phase, the Fire Giant will roll around to create distance between you and him.. Once you defeat the Fire Giant, you’ll obtain a whopping 180,000 Runes, as well as the Remembrance of the Fire Giant.

So in this guide let us take a look at how to defeat the Fire Giant in Elden Ring, and learn the cheese method.. Flame eruptions: Fire Giant will take out a ball of fire from the face in its chest .. But after a few seconds, these flame balls will erupt that covers a big area .. Once you do it the first time it will take some damage, around 15%-20% of his health, and begin the second phase.. Next, you need to repeat the same method of getting him to jump from the rock for his second phase as well.

In this guide, we’ll be looking at the threatening Fire Giant Boss in Elden Ring and providing tips and tricks to defeat him.. However, you don’t have to lose too much sweat thinking about how you will deal with this beast as we’ve figured out some of his weaknesses and ways to exploit this giant!. Once you’ve reached the required level, it’s time to face the Fire Giant Boss.. During both phases of the fight, he has different weaknesses.. This attack can be countered by moving aside or going at the back of the boss to avoid damage.. In this attack, Fire Giant leaps in mid-air and slams his plate onto the ground.. This attack can be countered by using I-frames to dodge the plate.. All you can do here is trick the orb into getting exploded at the wrong target.. You have two options, either move to the back of the giant or roll away from his hands. Also, due to the composition of Fire Giant’s body, his mobility will be very slow so use that time to make as many attacks as possible and give him maximum damage.. Phase one of this boss fight requires you to focus on the Fire Giant’s weak spot.. While doing all this, you also have to be careful of Fire Giant’s fire spells.. Dodge these attacks and make sure you’re not at any part of the ground that is on fire as it will explode soon and cause a lot of damage.. Avoid these attacks and keep attacking the Fire Giant’s heel until half of his health pool drains out and the second phase begins.. At the beginning of phase two, the Fire Giant will rip his feet out, and the eye on his chest will open up.

I went into Elden Ring wondering if FromSoftware would possibly be able to fill such a massive open-world game with the kind of difficult boss fights that have (in their own way) come to define the Soulsborne games and many of their spiritual spin-offs.. While Elden Ring offers you a surprisingly generous number of ways to overcome some of its toughest boss battles, quite a few of the boss fights in this game could easily be considered some of the toughest boss fights that FromSoftware has ever crafted.. This secret boss is incredibly easy to miss (you’ll need to access a hidden area before the boss fight with Maliketh, the Black Blade and choose to lie down in a grave in order to reach him), which really just means that relatively few Elden Ring players have gotten the chance to take on one of the hardest dragons in the game.. The fact this boss is able to teleport and move so quickly across the massive arena you fight it in is certainly part of the reason why this fight is so frustrating, but it’s really this dragon’s sweeping melee attacks and devastating AOE abilities that ensure you’ll rarely have a moment to breathe.. This boss fight is similar to the battle against Margit in a lot of ways, but this version of the epic enemy is significantly stronger, much quicker, and now utilizes a devastating AOE “lighting arrow” attack (as well as a few other AOE tricks) that will leave you constantly searching for ways to stay alive long enough to figure out how you’re supposed to avoid Margott’s powerful attacks and get close enough to do any real damage.. This is one of those bosses that have unique ways to punish you both at a distance and whenever you’re able to get close, which means that there are relatively few ways to approach this boss fight that will work for everyone.. I had almost as tough of a time ranking this boss fight as I did trying to win the fight itself.. Duo boss fights are usually some of the toughest fights in Elden Ring , and this battle against Crucible Knight Ordovis and his good buddy Crucible Knight show why two bosses are almost always tougher than one.. This boss fight has been compared to the famous battle against Ornstein and Smough in Dark Souls , but I actually find this boss fight to be much worse than all but a few Soulsborne duo battles (with the exception of one that we’ll discuss in a bit).. Final boss fights in Soulsborne games sometimes fail to live up to the standards of the many boss fights that precede them, but the battle against Radagon and the Elden Beast is guaranteed to test you regardless of where you’re at by that point in the game .. Either of these fights would have been worthy final encounters, but the fact that you have to beat both of these bosses back-to-back to beat the game makes this one of the hardest final fights in FromSoftware history.. The Beast Clergyman part of this boss fight is tough enough to be worthy of a lower spot on this list, but it’s insulting to call the fight against Maliketh anything less than one of the hardest fights in Elden Ring .. The most impressive thing about this fight is that it’s actually quite “balanced.” This battle is all about learning the patterns and mastering your own timing, which is exactly what a difficult Soulsborne boss fight should come down to.. Some of the absolute best Elden Ring players have spent days trying to beat this boss, and I honestly think this is the one boss in the game the vast majority of players will simply never be able to beat.

Even though this fight may be the player's first major boss, Margit's speed and ranged attacks make him a difficult encounter.. Godrick the Grafted is the first Shardbearer players will encounter in Elden Ring .. Like Margit, the Fell Omen, the Red Wolf of Radagon serves as an obstacle in the player's path during their travels through the Raya Lucaria Academy.. Just because this enemy isn't a major boss does not mean it is an easy fight.. The Wolf wields a giant sword and can move at incredible speeds.. This is also one of the most interesting boss fights in the game and will consist of a few major phases.. Rennala can be tough to beat, but her attacks and fight are predictable and can be memorized after a few tries.. Players will actually fight Godfrey twice over the course of the game, and both fights are required to beat the game.. Bosses similar to the Godskin Duo can be found all over the world of Elden Ring , but this is the only point where players will be required to fight two Godskin enemies at once.. Like other Legend bosses, Maliketh's fight has multiple stages and stands as one of the most difficult bosses in the game.. Hoarah Loux, the Warrior is a Legend boss that players will encounter in Leyndell, Ashen Capital.. It will appear as soon as players defeat Radagon.

Once you reach Stormveil Castle, Elden Ring throws you through a gauntlet of tough fights, and waiting at the end is the Godrick the Grafted boss fight .. It’s a tough fight if you take him on early in Elden Ring, but the game offers a few ways to swing the fight in your favor.. Our Godrick boss fight guide will also break down some of the key moves the fight will throw at you so that you know how to avoid them.. Godrick is a two-part boss fight, with a significant increase in aggression during the second phase.. Godrick swings slowly and hits hard, meaning rolls are your best option in this fight.. Ideally, Nepheli will last through the majority of the Godrick boss fight.. Godrick will open most fights with a leaping slam or a charging uppercut with his axe.. Windy roll: If Godrick starts stomping with wind swirling around him, he’ll shortly roll in a looping arc toward you before unleashing either a jumping slice if you’re close to him, or two ranged wind attacks if you’re at a distance.. For phase two of the Godrick boss fight, he’ll stick a dragon head on his arm and start unleashing fire attacks.. He’ll also start swinging his dragon arm after or before his axe, forcing you to dodge two strikes instead of one.. Overcoming the Godrick boss fight will net you a Giant Rune, let you enjoy a rather entetaining NPC conversation, and unleash you on the path to the rest of Elden Ring’s enormous map.
