Here’s how to find the colossal sword of Berserk’s protagonist, Guts.
Guts Greatsword Location in Elden Ring
It is safe to say Berserk offers a unique and surprising narrative in each volume. The dark-fantasy manga revolves around a hero named Guts. Though Guts is not a celebrated hero or a virtuous knight of the order. He is usually a bad-tempered, hot-headed and often greedy young man with tons of mysteries. The portrayal of the protagonist is one of the reasons why millions of people enjoy reading Berserk. Unlike other works that depict their protagonist in a quite romantic way, Berserk has a hero that is nothing more than a ‘human’.
And if you want to acquire his greatsword, you will need to do some riding.
Here’s the location of the colossal sword on the map.
The southern parts of the Lands Between have two main regions and a smaller region called the Weeping Peninsula. Limgrave is where we, as a Tarnished, start our long journey to become the Elden Lord. There is also Caelid, the wasteland of Scarlet Rot.
- Caelid is where we should be headed to acquire the Greatsword.
- The region is located in the north-eastern part of the Lands Between. So you will have to look for a map fragment in Caelid.
- After reaching the wasteland, follow the path to the east and look for abandoned carts on the road.
- You are on the right path if you see a group of wandering Rot zombies.
- After passing them, you will see two abandoned carts near the Giant Dogs.
- Though you need to be careful not to attract them as they are very fast and can end you in a few hits.
- Try going for the cart behind the dogs and loot the chest to get Greatsword of Guts.
