How to defeat giants in Elden Ring

Giants in Elden Ring are one of the first formidable foes encountered in the early game and beyond as Tarnished begins exploring the Lands Between. In fact, the game will actually literally throw one at you shortly after you get your horse and set out to explore the first story area. These monstrosities can look pretty intimidating with sagging skin and exposed guts, but they’re actually not all that difficult to outwit, especially if you use the agility of your trusty horse, Torrent.

Most of the giants found in the game are in the open world. This works in the player’s favor because while these behemoths are quite large, they are not the fastest creatures the Tainted will encounter. They often swipe at the player multiple times, but usually give windows to counter after they miss a few times. Their legs are their weakness, and getting enough knocks to their knees usually causes the monster to fall over, allowing free punches. The head is also a weak spot to aim for as well when the opportunity arises. It’s recommended to keep your distance on Torrent while the giant throws a tantrum, and dodging between hits will help if your horse isn’t available.

Casters can also use much of the same strategy. Aiming for the head and knees with spells like Magic Glintblade or Rock Sling will usually bring the creature to its knees as long as you still dodge appropriately. Be sure to watch out for her telescream, which may stop you for a moment.

Players will encounter giants quite often in Elden Ring. The further you advance into the Lands Between, the more chance you may have to prove you’re a master at giant slaughter. As with any large two-legged creature, it’s often a safe bet to get on your knees and either keep your distance or stay behind and below them. Big doesn’t always mean scary.
