Elden Ring: How To Beat Fire Giant [Cheese Method]

Welcome to the Elden Ring Fire Giant Cheese Method. The goal of this guide is to show you the easiest way of defeating the fire giant.

Is it really a From Software game if it doesn’t contain a bunch of nearly impossible-to-defeat bosses? The fire giant is one of them. If you are also stuck at this point of the game, then worry not as I welcome you to the Elden Ring fire giant cheese method. In this guide, I’ll show you how to cheese this enormously huge cheating melon head and show him who’s the real boss (pun intended).

Key Takeaways
  • Encounter the Fire Giant at Flame Peak in Elden Ring with two distinct phases.
  • In the first phase, use the cheese method to avoid his fling attack and lure him towards a cliff edge.
  • Dodge his snow attack and make him jump down from the cliff to enter the second phase.
  • In the second phase, face scarier attacks and defend against them while staying on the upper ground.
  • Repeat the steps from the first phase to lure him to the cliff edge, jump from the side, and go to the advised spot.
  • When he rushes to the middle of the arena, he jumps down again, defeated instantly by fall damage

The Fire Giant cheese method in Elden Ring kicks off once you pass the fog gate. Immediately get on your Torrent Horse and rush between his legs at godspeed. However, just as you’re about to reach his legs he will fling his plate and throw snow at you.

You can get off the steed and simply block this with a hundred percent damage absorption shield or you can double jump on your steed and simply avoid it. After the initial fling, continue to go underneath him and pass him. Once you’ve passed his legs, dash straight towards the edge of the arena.

Now, DON’T MOVE! you need to wait here and lure the Fire Giant to where you’re standing. 

As soon as he’s about to reach you, he will do the snow fling again, when he does that you quickly need to jump onto the ground just to the right of where you’re standing. Don’t make the mistake of jumping on your own, you need the horse to actually make it across.

End Of The First Phase

Once you’re on the ground, you need to wait for him to get on the bigger rock. One notable thing is that you precisely need to be at the spot shown in the above picture or you’ll run the risk of him falling down and not taking any damage.

Once he’s on the bigger rock, just run toward the middle of the arena and the dummy will simply jump down in hopes of catching you, and well congrats! You just made it through the first phase.

Well now you made it through the first phase but what about the second one? Keep reading to find out. This is where things might get a little trickier, therefore make sure you utilize your weapons and have the Best Armor on!

Indication Of Phase Two

If you properly followed all the steps mentioned in the phase 1 section of the Elden ring fire giant cheese method, then the fire giant should have lost his legs by now and will be transitioning into his second phase shown in a cut scene. Is it not just the most satisfactory thing to happen?

Get Ready To Defend!

Cheesing the second phase of the fire giant is relatively similar to what you did in his first phase. Once the cut scene finishes, you’ll find yourself standing in the middle of the upper ground (the one you jumped from before).

You need to run to the same spot as before, a key thing to note here is that he will hurl tracking fireballs at you from a distance so be prepared to do something about the. A shield with decent fire resistance can help make this phase easier by a mile or if you’re skilled enough, you can simply go full-blown ultra-instinct mode on him and dodge his attacks. Pull this fire giant cheese strategy in Elden Ringand you’re one step closer to beating the boss.
