Elden Ring Giant Crusher Location Walkthrough

Our Elden Ring Giant Crusher Location guide will help you navigate The Lands Between to locate the Giant Crusher in Elden Ring.

The Giant Crusher in Elden Ring is a highly coveted weapon due to its exceptional qualities. With just one swing, it delivers the impact of five to six blows from a fully upgraded sword. If you possess a tanky build and desire to dominate your foes in The Lands Between and instil fear in other players during co-op mode, our Giant Crusher Location Guide is tailored specifically for you.

Key Takeaways
  • The Giant Crusher has one of the highest damage outputs in the game. However, there’s a downside it’s extremely slow and requires 60 Strength to wield.
  • You can obtain the Giant Crusher on a large cart wagon guarded by a miniboss in the Atlus Plateau region.
  • There are two ways to get to Atlus Plateau. The first is by defeating the bosses and progressing through Ruin-Strewn Precipice. The second is to complete the Dectus medallion.
  • It is possible to get the Giant Crusher by sneaking around the camp’s mini-boss without fighting it.

From Altus Plateau To Locating The Giant Crusher in Elden Ring

“Outer Phantom Wall” site of grace

After reaching Altus Plateau, I did as below:

Assuming you have arrived at the Altus Plateau, your next destination is the “Outer Phantom Wall” site of grace in the South-Eastern region of the map. So get on your torrent and start galloping towards there. Once you are at the mentioned site of grace, rest! So in case the situation goes bananas, you can just start again from here. Once rested get back on the Horse and start heading south until you see a Campsite.

The Giant Crusher in Elden Ring is found inside this Campsite but is guarded by a super annoying boss. From my perspective, it is entirely avoidable, provided your stealth skills from Sekiro are still sharp. So you can simply sneak past this grotesque worm thingy (we don’t even know) and get the Legendary Giant Crusher. Your target here is the broken cart wagon as that is where the chest which contains the hammer is found.

Now let’s say that you are feeling heroic and do want to take down the mini-boss. Then all we can say is unsheathe that Katana, sharpen that Greatsword, and get ready to get your dodging reflexes tested in the most brutal way possible by the Ulcerated Tree Spirit mini-boss who guards the Giant Crusher.

Defeating it will reward you with the Golden Seed, so our Elden Ring Giant Crusher Location guide recommends that you kill it. The boss can seem intimidating at first, but if you can dodge its swipes across the ground and chip at its health, it shall die too. Once he’s dead, head to the same cart wagon mentioned before and grab the hammer you have worked so hard for.
