How Much Do You Know About The Strangest Weapons In Elden Ring?

Elden Ring is a game that is filled with so many incredible weapons: shields, spells armors, items and so much more. That I often don’t know what to do with them. I sometimes come across a weapon like Bloodhound’s Fang super early on.

That's just so wildly overpowered with so many Elden Ring Runes invested in the game. I also come across items where they seem completely useless. And then every so often you come across a weapon or a shield or something else. It’s weird.and it doesn’t make sense and I don’t know how anyone had the creativity to come up with it.

How Much Do You Know About The Strangest Weapons In Elden Ring?

1. Whirls And Giggles

There are six of the weirdest weapons and shields that you can find in Elden Ring.

For those of you who have played the Old Hunter’s DLC and Bloodborne. I’m sure you are very familiar with the Whirligig Saw. It’s one of the best strength weapons in the game. If not the best, well, they have brought a version of that into Elden Ring while it might not be as overpowered.

It is still just weird. It is called Ghiza’s wheel, and it requires 28 points of Strength and 18 points of Dexterity to use. It has a unique skill called Spinning Wheel. Basically, you just grab it and charge up Death Spin Blade. You can also apply Bleed very quickly to all enemies in front of you. Now this is a very good boss killing skill, but this weapon also just dishes out a ton of damage. If you have any sort of inclination to play like you did in Bloodborne, I would highly recommend going and getting this weapon.

2. There’s A Snake In My Boot

If you’re ever trying to get out of work for the day saying you got bit by a snake, is usually a good idea. Now if you don’t live in an area with snakes, that’s not going to work. But you can try it if you want Coil Shield is a really weird Shield. It’s made out of a snake. It’s a Strength and Dexterity Scaling Shield and has 72 Poison build up. Its unique skill called Viper Bite, basically shoots the snake out in front of you, biting the enemies in front of you.

And again causing Poison build up. It’s a really good Shield to use if you’re trying to do any sort of Poison build. It’s great for stacking poison on bosses that are not immune to it. And it’s just goofy and weird and makes a great addition to any kind of Troll PVP build you might be trying to put together.

3.Heads So Many Heads

I don’t know about you, but I have never personally crafted a weapon in the forms of the heads of my dead wife and two kids. But if you have, you would have something in common with Necromancer Garris when he crafted the family Heads. This is a flail. That is a Strength, Dexterity and Intelligence Scaling weapon with a really weird look. It also has a unique skill called Familial Rancor. This is an ability where you can run near people. You raise it up in the air, the heads kind of spay out in three different directions and start shooting out dark magics. It’s really creepy. I don’t like it. I don’t like using this weapon, but it’s really weird.

4. All Bubble Blowing Babies

Envoy’s Horn is the weapon for you. It’s a faith Dexterity and Strength Scaling Hammer and it shoots bubbles at your enemies. The special ability, the special skill that this weapon gives you, is the ability to blow bubbles at your enemies. SpongeBob would be so proud.

5. Through Fire And Flame

Visage Shield is an absolute Beast of an item in Elden Ring, and I mean that in more ways than one. It requires 24 pounds to carry. It requires 44 Strength to wield properly, and it also has a hideous grotesque figure of a giant head with lots of flames spouts and teeth just shooting out in different gross directions. But if you want to use this super weird weapon, you will be rewarded with a super cool and unique ability called Tongues of Fire.

This is where you basically hold the shield in front of you and spew flames on all of your enemies. It’s great for crowd control. It’s great for AOE killing. It’s also really good for just smacking people. If you run out of FP, just start smacking. This thing brings the pain.

6. Give Them The Bird

I don’t think it should be any surprise to you all when I tell you that the ringed finger is the number one weirdest weapon on my list. And it’s for many, many different reasons. One is a giant finger that you just hit people with.

Secondly, because of the skill that it has called Claw Flick, where the finger just inflates to enormous proportions and then you just flick everything in front of you. This is a weird weapon. I don’t understand why it’s in the game, obviously. There’s lore reasons and stuff like that, but a man who thought of just putting a giant finger in the game.

I mean, come on, I’ve been invaded by someone dual wielding these before. And I think I’ve died every time more just because I’m freaked out and weirded out by them more so than anything. This is a weird weapon. It’s number one on the list.

If you want to use it, you can get it real early on in the game. That’s a weird weapon.

The above are the weird weapons in my mind. Which weapons do you think are surprising to you?
