How to get the Black Steel Greathammer in Elden Ring Shadow of the Erdtree

There are nearly 100 new weapons in Elden Ring: Shadow of the Erdtree, and most of them pack a punch. One of my favorites is the Black Steel Greathammer—it’s a giant chunk of metal that deals tons of poise damage and works great with a heavy Strength character. It’s easy to get, so keep reading.

To get the Black Steel Greathammer in Elden Ring: Shadow of the Erdtree, head to the Church of Consolation in southeast Gravesite Plain. You can get here immediately after starting the DLC—it’s a straight shot from your starting point. The Black Steel Greathammer drops from a non-respawning Black Knight enemy inside the church. There’s also a Scadutree Fragment here.

The Knight can be tricky to kill, especially if you’re just starting out, so take your time and make sure you clear out the other enemies first. He’s fairly easy to backstab if you can get behind him. Just try not to let him block your attacks, otherwise he retaliates with a high-damage guard-counter that’ll take off a huge chunk of your health.

The Black Steel Greathammer is a guaranteed drop from this Knight, so you only have to kill him once. It requires 25 Strength, 11 Dexterity, and 17 Faith, and releases a golden explosion every time you guard-counter. It goes great with the Black Steel Greatshield from the Black Knight in Fog Rift Fort.
