Check out the best bleed weapons in Elden Ring and a touch of where to find them.
What is better than backstabbing? Bleeding them to death. Oh wait, I am talking about the scenario in Elden Ring. In all the builds that were discussed so far, the bleeding weapon was one of the first in the line to be added in any kind of build. With a touch of buff, their stats get monstrously high.
And there are a lot in the arsenal. Which one do you think you are going to pick? For starters, the bleeding weapon goes best with builds that are focused primarily on Arcane. So just before going on rampaging by listening to build up Arcane, I suggest you scroll down to get to know some of the best bleeding weapons you can try.

Top 5 Best Bleed Weapons in Elden Ring
Reduvia can be acquired in quite an early phase of the game. This one is a committed one to its trait. This dagger weapon scales with Strength, Arcane, and Dexterity. Once it reaches the max level, I can assure you that the scalings are heftier than the usual time. But, as it is a dagger, you will be making short-ranged attacks most of the time. And, yes, backstabbing the damned foes will never seem better by using this.
With Reduvia, you can carry the legacy of its design by bleeding the foes to death. Being coated in blood, Reduvia’s special skill goes by the name of the Blood Blade. Subtle drawback would be that you will not be able to infuse this bleeding dagger with any kind of buffs. But, hey, you still can upgrade it. Only you need some Somber Smithing Stones rolling in your pocket.
You will find Reduvia in the hand of Bloody Finger Nerijus. He will be wandering around Agheel Lake in Murkwater Catacombs.
4. Ghiza’s Wheel
If you are looking for a bleeding weapon that creates mayhem in this wretched kingdom with a bit of ludicrousness, I would suggest going for Ghiza’s Wheel. It is known to push down your foes in eternal embarrassment. This hammer-looking thing comes bound with chains that will be a definite edition of The Land Between Chainsaw Massacre. Anything that comes in front gets repetitive bleeding damage.
Ghiza’s Wheel scales with Dexterity and Strength. The hint of physical damage is already given, but you need a great deal of strength to wield it as well. Inquisitor Ghiza used it as a torture weapon. To survive this dominion, what else can you do to pass the torturous pain by Spinning Wheel to your foes?
Inquisitor Ghiza is the proud owner of this monstrous wheel. Defeat him in the Volcano Manor to be the next successor of the wheel.
3. Hand of Malenia
Malenia’s Hand is basically a Katana that scales with Strength and Dexterity. Let me tell you, if you want to go for any build based on Dexterity, you will find Hand of Malenia as the strongest weapon available in the arsenal. Even though the scaling misses Arcane, it has some pretty bleeding damage for the foes to get concerned over.
By unlocking the skill, Waterfowl Dance, those damned foes will know the true meaning of bleeding pain. Happy hour is over now, Tarnished one. You absolutely cannot use either Magic or other consumables on the Hand of Malenia.
Known by the title the Blade of Miquella, Malenia hides this Katana in her Prosthetic hand as a built-in weapon. Make her kneel, and the Hand is yours.
2. Bloody Helice
If you feel like poking your foes for fun, this one is just right for you. Well, not just any simple poke, a poke that bleeds your foe out to death. That kind of poke. Apart from regular poking and stabbing, using its weapon art, Dynast’s Finesse, you will be able to thrust with a high level of bleeding damage. Moreover, this skill will also allow you to go for a counter-attack. This one-of-a-kind bleeding weapon scales with Dexterity and Arcane.
Now here is a thing. Suppose you are buffed with Warcry. From now on, your thrusting attacks will turn into multi-hitting attacks. Poking is fun, they said.
In the ruins of Writhblood, Sanguine Noble roams around being a truthful servant to the Lord of Blood. Defeat the noble and loot the chest. You will get what you came for.
From the Samurai build that was discussed earlier, we saw that the Uchigatana is not only a primary weapon for that build but also the best bleed weapon to be ever found. Well, an extra perk is that you will get two of them if you start with Samurai only. Apart from that, to build rapid bleeding, you will do just fine even with a single piece of them. As it is scaled with Strength and Dexterity, you will be focusing on slash damage than piercing ones.
When the Ash of War, Seppuku, is buffed, Uchigatana starts dancing. With each swing, bleed start getting build up to a monstrous level. Now imagine what two will do. Sounds bloody, innit?
If you are not starting with a Samurai, head towards Deathtouched Catacombs. The Uchigatana will be hanging over a corpse. Sheath the bloody Katana and be its true successor, Tarnished one.
