In Elden Ring: Shadow of the Erdtree, the Fire Knight’s Greatsword is a random drop from the Fire Knight enemies who wield the weapon in Shadow Keep.

The fastest way to farm it is to backtrack from the Storehouse, First Floor Site of Grace in the Specimen Storehouse Legacy Dungeon. Go down the elevator, and at the bottom, there’s a patrolling Fire Knight who drops the sword.

I got lucky and the sword dropped the first time I killed him, but it might take you a few more attempts. It doesn’t take long to ride the elevator down, kill the knight, then teleport back to the Storehouse, First Floor Site of Grace. Just remember to reset the elevator beforehand.

Use a Silver-Picked Fowl Foot and the Silver Scarab helm to boost your Item Discovery rate and the Fire Knight’s Greatsword will drop eventually.

The Fire Knight’s Greatsword deals a mixture of Fire and Physical damage and packs a punch. According to the weapon description, “further flame imbuement will amplify the effect and greatly increase the armament’s power,” suggesting the Fire Knight’s Greatsword excels with Fire-based weapon buffs and Ashes of War.
