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

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, his arsenal contains a snow avalanche attack, a jump smash, a huge plate swing, a stomp, a gambol, almost one-shotting fireballs and if all of that wasn’t enough, they gave him a massive health pool “ sure, let’s just make him a literal mental torcher cause its fun”. If you are also stuck at this point of the game, then worry not as we welcome you to the Elden Ring fire giant cheese method. In this guide, we’ll show you how to cheese this enormously huge cheating melon head and show him who’s the real boss (pun intended).

Get Between His Legs!

His Legs

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.

Keeping Him In Sight

Now, DON’T MOVE! you need to wait here and lure the dumb melon-head to where you’re standing. It goes without saying but keep him in your view while you wait for him, the last thing you need is him rushing you while you were busy checking out the trees. 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.

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 towards 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.

The Second Phase

Well now you made it through the first phase but what about the second one? Keep reading to find out.

Indication Of Phase Two

Broken Legs
Broken Legs Means 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?

The Fireballs
The Fireballs

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 them as they can one-shot you LITERALLY. A shield with a 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 Ring and you’re one step close to beating the boss.

You know the drill, once he gets close to you jump down to the lower ground and make your way to the same waiting spot as before. Again he can throw fireballs at you this time, so keep your defenses up. The moment he shows his melon head above the bigger rock is when you get your clue to run, go full-blown Dominic Toretto mode on him, and DASH to the middle of the arena. All you need to do now is keep an eye out for his fireballs until he finally falls and the “legend felled” message shows up on the screen informing you of your sweet victory.

Conclusion

The thing that makes this cheese method so amazing is that you don’t need any fancy equipment for this to work. All you need to do is carefully follow the mentioned steps and you will see the most satisfying message “Legend Defeated” appear on your screen. However take this cheese method with a grain of salt as sometimes, the fire giant will fall but take no damage whatsoever but you will eventually succeed as long as you don’t give up.
