Soul-like games have always been inspired by the Berserk series, and players can find Gut’s Greatsword in the Elden Ring as a touching tribute to the late Kentaro Miura.
Elden Ring players have begun to point out striking similarities between the new Souls-like game and the Berserk manga. From the uncanny resemblance of the Prisoner class to Griffith to the characterization of the characters wielding giant swords, it’s clear where Hidetaka Miyazaki got his inspiration.
With the news of Miura’s death in 2021, it is expected that a series of Berserk-inspired films will pay homage to the legendary artist. It was later discovered that Miyazaki had redesigned the Greatsword of the Elden Ring to resemble one of the swords Guts used in the manga.
The Greatsword’s in-game description is also a reference to Berserk confirming that it is, in fact, an homage to the series. Luckily, players can find this Easter Egg weapon fairly early to easily finish building their Guts.
Berserk Easter Egg Sword in Elden Ring
There’s a lot to explore and discover in the Elden Ring’s massive open world, including the newly redesigned Greatsword. But with a world as large as the Midlands, players may need help figuring out exactly what they’re looking for.
Berserk Easter egg Greatsword can be found quite early in the area Caelid. This region is located northeast of Limgrave, this is where the player begins his journey. The hike is a bit strenuous, but using your Torrent horse makes the ride quite short.
The sword was inside a chest on the back of a large black carriage. Located near the western border of Caelid and Limgrave, players will find the carriage surrounded by some rather difficult enemies. However, combat is optional as the player can hop on a vehicle, open a chest, get a sword, and run.
Although you can collect the Greatsword early on, you won’t be able to use it effectively right away. That’s because Berserk Greatsword requires 31 Strength points to use effectively.
It might take a while before you can use Guts’ Greatsword, but at least you can take it with you to complete your Berserk cosplay.
