How To Get Scavenger’s Curved Sword In Elden Ring

In this guide, we will be letting you know how to get Scavenger’s Curved Sword in Elden Ring by outlining its location.

The Scavenger’s Curved Sword is one of the unique Curved swords that you get in Elden Ring. Although other Curved swords like the Bandit Curved Swords have a finer edge, the Scavenger’s Curved Sword has a more notched edge that gives it a sharper appearance.

The edge of this blade is also covered with blood, which is fitting since this weapon is excellent for building up blood loss, with greater bleed damage compared to other Curved blades.

In terms of combat capabilities, this weapon is extremely fast due to its low weight, and packs in a huge load of damage with the help of its swift attacks and Bleed build-up.

So here is how you can find how to get the Scavenger’s Curved Sword in Elden Ring.

Scavenger’s Curved Sword location in Elden Ring

Elden Ring Scavenger’s Curved Sword map

The Scavenger’s Curved Sword is a pretty easy weapon to find in Elden Ring compared to most of the other weapons. You just have to loot a corpse in Mt. Gelmir which lies in the Mountaintops of the Giants, meaning that you will not get access to this area at the start of the game.

Reach the Altus Plateau

To reach Mt. Gelmir in the Altus Plateau region, you will have to complete a couple of prerequisites. You will first have to activate the Grand Lift of Dectus, which is northeast of the Raya Lucaria Academy. To do that, you will have to find and combine two different Medallions.

You will find one-half of the Medallions at two different forts. The first fort is Fort Haight, which is located in the eastern region of Limgrave. The second fort that you need to find is Fort Faroth, which is located in the Dragonbarrow region, Caelid.

You can find the two pieces of the Dectus Medallion at the top of the two aforementioned Forts. Combine the two and you will activate the Grand Lift of Dectus to ascend to the Altus Plateau region.

If you do not wish to find the Medallions, then there is a way you can bypass the Grand Lift of Dectus and reach the Altus Plateau alternatively. For that, you will have to travel across the Ravine Veiled Village, which holds Magma Wyrm Makar – a tough boss to defeat.

Loot the corpse in Mt. Gelmir

Once you have gained access to the Altus Plateau region, you must travel north towards the Bridge of Iniquity Site of Grace. Simply fast travel to this location if you have already discovered the respective Site of Grace to reach Mt. Gelmir.

From the Bridge of Iniquity Site of Grace, you must make your way northwest across the ruins. You will find a lot of ruined spiked walls, but it isn’t necessary to make your way through them as there are a lot of enemies here.

All you have to do is simply hop on top of your Torrent and make your way forward swiftly, clinging to the edge of the cliff on your left. Proceed far enough and you will eventually reach a ladder on the edge of the cliff.

You must take this ladder all the way to the top of the cliff. At the top, you should see a tower just ahead of you – move towards the tower and then take a right.

You should see a rocky beam that connects your edge to an adjacent cliff face. Head across the beam to reach a small area. You will find a Grafted Scion here, wielding two swords and a blade, but it isn’t necessary to fight it.

On the edge to your left, you should see another ladder and a burned cart right next to it with a corpse. You must loot this corpse to obtain the Scavenger’s Curved Sword.

Scavenger’s Curved Sword upgrades and stats

Just because the Scavenger’s Curved Sword is obtained fairly early on in the game, it is heavily underrated. This sword is very versatile in battle and offers a lot of flexibility with builds.

The Scavenger’s Curved Sword mainly scales with Strength and Dexterity and has a pretty low requirement to wield, which means that you can start using it as soon as you get it. The minimum requirement and scaling with this weapon are as follows:

  • Strength: 9 (D)
  • Dexterity: 14 (D)

With a surprisingly low weight of 3.5, the Scavenger’s Curved Sword allows you to pull off insanely swift attacks, that too with a long reach. This makes it a pretty good weapon to use at close range.

This weapon also offers a passive Bleed buildup as you constantly keep attacking your enemies. For every hit that you land on an enemy with this sword, you will build up Hemorrhage which can stack to a certain extent after creating an explosion that creates a huge dent in the enemy’s HP bar. This makes this weapon very good against bosses that have a large health pool.

You can upgrade this weapon with Somber Smithing Stones to increase the damage and effects that it has, but its main strength lies in upgrading your Arcane stats. A higher Arcane stat will allow your blade to be more efficient in inflicting Hemorrhage.

Additionally, you can also dual-wield this weapon with other armaments of the Curved sword family, which is one of the special features of this weapon. To gain another one of the Scavenger’s Curved swords though, you will need to go through with NG+.
