No matter the device or weapon in question, you will be able to sheath your weapon in Elden Ring easily with this guide.

If you want to sheath your weapons in Elden Ring then simply follow these steps:

How to Sheath on PS4/5


  • Hold Triangle + L1 or R1

How to Sheath on Xbox Series X/S or Xbox One

  • Hold Y + LB or RB


How to Sheath on PC

  • Hold E and continuously press the right or left mouse button

This sheaths your weapon as your character will try to two-hand the weapon. And instead, it will be sheathed to allow you to free your hands.


This trick will allow you to sheath your weapon and keep it concealed in Elden Ring. As long as you don’t swing it or re-equip your shield, it will remain that way too. Even if you use fast travel, it will remain sheathed.

Using this skill, you will even be able to hold weapons in your off-hand without getting overwritten by the right-hand weapon mechanic.

Here is how you too can hold weapons in your off-hand only in Elden Ring:

  • Go to your Equipment menu
  • Now, remove all of the right-hand weapons
  • You must now sheath one of your right-hand weapons in your off-hand

And so, if you’re playing on a PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, or Xbox One, you can sheath your weapon in Elden Ring. This will work for all kinds of weapons, including a sword, shield, staff, or club.
