Strength weapons have always been a primary choice of many players in souls-borne games. While some of us try to act cool by wielding Katanas and other fancy weapons, some wimpy try to use Magic and Faith builds; we have gigachads who wield massive, colossal weapons that can tank attacks and deal massive damage to enemies. 

That said, let us check out the top five best strength weapons in Elden Ring. 

5 Best Strength Weapons in Elden Ring

Here are the five best Strength weapons in Elden Ring:

Prelate’s Inferno Crozier

The Prelate’s Inferno Crozier is a colossal weapon that scales with Strength and Dexterity, and it reminds me of Smough’s Hammer from Dark Souls. It deals tremendous damage, but that is secondary to its weapon skill, Prelate’s Charge, which shines the most.

When you use the weapon skill, you charge and hit the ground with Prelate’s Inferno Crozier, unleashing a surge of flames while running in a selected direction while inflicting damage on anything that comes in contact.

Thanks to its colossal size, you get far reach, and with the weapon skill Stamp, where you perform an upward, you can even deal with bosses quickly. 

Giant Crusher 

The Giant Crusher is a beast of a weapon that scales mainly with Strength. To wield the weapon, you need 60 STR, which is a lot, but you don’t have to worry as it deals massive physical damage and has the caliber to even one shot most high-level enemies and some bosses.

Its weapon skill, Endure, lets you tank incoming attacks, which opens a window for attack. You can use the Giant Crusher if you are going for a pure Strength build. 

Dragon Halberd

The Dragon Halberd is yet another Strength-based weapon that also requires a slight Dexterity. You can use the Dragon Halberd to deal physical damage to enemies and can use its weapon skill, Spinning Slash, to charge the weapon with Lightning while performing a 360 spinning slash attack. 

Maliketh’s Black Blade

This one is our personal favorite! The Maliketh’s Black Blade is a great weapon that scales primarily with Strength and stats like Dexterity and Faith. The best part about this weapon is its weapon skill, Destined Death, which charges the blade with the Destined Death rune and unleashes a myriad of blades in an AoE.

When the attack hits enemies, it deals massive damage while reducing the enemies’ maximum HP, which further degrades for a short time, just like the Black Knife’s Blade of Death.
