Swords, spears, hammers? That all makes sense. A crossbow and bows? Totally understandable. A Jar Cannon? I mean, the name makes sense given we are talking about Elden Ring, but this is quite the unique weapon. The Jar Cannon is a ballista weapon that can do massive damage to enemies from range and requires a fair bit of strength to wield. Even players that might not decide to use the weapon will want to have it in their arsenal, especially if they have made a Jar friend along in their journey. This guide will explain where and how to get the Jar Cannon ballista weapon in Elden Ring.
How To Get The Jar Cannon In Elden Ring
In order to get yourself the Jar Cannon, you will need to the northern part of the Mt. Gelmir region. You will need to travel to the appropriately-named cavern known as Volcano Cave. To reach this location, you will need to start at the First Mt. Gelmir Site Campsite of Grace. From here, look to the northwest, where you will see a large watchtower. Just beyond the watchtower is a rock bridge that has fallen to the right of the tower. This bridge will take you to the small landing pictured on the map below. From here, go towards the ladder against the wall, and doing so will have a Grafted Scion jump down to attack you. Defeating the Scion is not necessary, but it makes escaping this area much easier on your trip to get the Jar Cannon. Climb the ladder which will have another ladder waiting for you at the top. You will need to climb a total of four ladders from the bottom to the top of this cliff face. Once at the top, go to the right past several demi-humans until you reach the location pictured below. The Jar Cannon is at the end of this cave.
Make your way through the cave and to the area’s boss fight, Demi-Human Queen Margot. Defeating said boss will reward you with the Jar Cannon you have been searching for. The Jar Cannon will require players to have level 34 in Strength and level 12 in dexterity in order to use it properly.
Elden Ring is available on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S.
