Cuckoo Knight map locations in Elden Ring

Head towards the road North of East Raya Lucaria Site of Grace. Upon reaching there, you will come across the first knight mounted on a horse. After defeating the knight, you also need to defeat the horse as they both have separate health bars.

The next knight will be encountered directly ahead near the herd of sheep. Similarly, the third one can be found a little north of the current location. For the fourth knight, you need to make your way to the forest Northwest of Bellum Highway.

If you follow the Bellum Highway to the end, you will find the fifth knight on top of a massive pile of debris. The last knight will be surrounded by several mini cuckoo guards which will help him during the fight.

While farming all of the Cuckoo Knight armor pieces can take a bit of time in Elden Ring, you can speed that up by equipping the Silver Scarab to boost item discovery.
