Elden Ring: How To Get Bleed Colossal Weapons & Swords

Looking to cause the Bleed effect using Heavy weapons? Check out our guide on how to get Bleed on Colossal Weapons and Swords in Elden Ring.

Elden Ring features a plethora of heavy weapons that cause massive damage output to your enemies. This mainly includes the Colossal weapons and swords that you can obtain through different means. Since the moveset of these heavy weapons are pretty slow, several players are wondering about using different status effects. This primarily includes the Blood loss or Hemorrhage effect for your Colossal weapons and Swords. But you can use the Bleed affinity only on selected heavy weapons. Not to worry, check out our guide on how to get Bleed on Colossal weapons and swords in Elden Ring.

How to Get Bleed on Colossal Weapons & Swords in Elden Ring

You can get the Bleed effect on Colossal weapons as well as Colossal swords by using the Black Whetblade. You can find the Black Whetblade located at the Night’s Sacred Ground. This location can be found in front of an Altar near a corpse in Nokron, Eternal City. As you use the Whetblade, you also need a compatible Ash of War to select the Bleed affinity. Alternatively, you can also use Blood Incantations, consumables, or spells to select the Bleed affinity.

But as mentioned earlier, you can use the Bleed only on selected Colossal weapons and swords. Speaking of the Colossal weapons, only Ghiza’s Wheel causes the Blood Loss buildup. It causes +70 Blood loss on your opponents. You can use Somber Smithing Stones, Magic, or consumables to upgrade the Ghiza’s Wheel weapon. While its passive blood effect remains the same, you can cause massive damage of 382 on Standard +10.

You can use the Black Whetblade for the Bleed affinity on selected Colossal weapons. These weapons are as follows:

  • Duelist Greataxe
  • Rotten Greataxe

  • Golem’s Halberd
  • Giant-Crusher
  • Prelate’s Inferno Crozier

Coming to the Colossal Swords, there are no weapons that cause Blood Loss or Bleed effect naturally. You need to use the Black Whetblade along with an Ash of War or other alternatives for Bleed affinity. Similar to Colossal weapons, only some Colossal swords allow the Bleed status effect. So, here are all the Colossal swords that can cause the Bleed effect:

  • Zweihander
  • Greatsword
  • Watchdog’s Greatsword
  • Troll’s Golden Sword

Now, let’s see the best Bleed Colossal weapons or Sword in Elden Ring.

Speaking in terms of causing massive Physical Damage, Duelist Greataxe might be the right pick. Upon applying the Blood affinity, this Colossal weapon can inflict 352 damage. Furthermore, similar to all Colossal weapons, it causes 120 Hemorrhage or Blood loss build-up. Alternatively, you can also go for Ghiza’s Wheel if you are ready to upgrade it to Standard +10.

In my opinion, the best choice would be Greatsword. With the Bleed affinity, you can cause 341 Physical Damage against your enemies. This is the highest damage output out of all the Colossal swords. Its Strength, Dexterity, and Arcane stats scale at B, D, and D tiers respectively. You can also build an overpowered Bleed build using different Talismans
