Guarding the path to Forge of the Giants, the Fire Giant is a mandatory boss in Elden Ring that Tarnished adventurers might find brutally challenging unless they know how to cheese the beast. In the beginning, players might think the Fire Giant to be an easy fight, as the boss moves at a sluggish pace. However, this misleading colossus has a surprisingly long and punishing attack range, with abilities that can one to two-shot players. Therefore, Tarnished pilgrims might need to turn to exploitative methods of cheese if they hope to get past the Fire Giant in Elden Ring.
Cheesing The Fire Giant In Elden Ring
To cheese the Fire Giant in Elden Ring, Tarnished will need to equip themselves with an ample supply of arrows or bolts and a decent bow or crossbow. The primary strategy is to leap out of the bounds of the boss arena and stay at a safe distance while gradually whittling away the giant’s HP.
The first step is to get the Fire Giant’s health to half HP by repeatedly attacking his left foot. This procedure is recommended because if the player leaves the arena, they will be teleported back in during the second stage. To leave the Fire Giant’s boss area in Elden Ring, ride atop Torrent towards the entrance on the northern side. Go on the ridge on the right and carefully leap across the gap to the giant chain leading to the fog gate.
The Fire Giant’s ranged flame attacks will still be able to reach the player from across the ravine. Hence, use the bramble-covered troll corpse to take cover. Fire projectiles at the boss while aiming through the cracks of the frozen body until the giant loses all HP. After cheesing the Fire Giant in Elden Ring, players will be able to proceed to the Forge of the Giants and continue the main story.
Elden Ring is available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.
