What’s better than a single weapon that you can attack enemies with? Two weapons that you can attack enemies with and Elden Ring has no shortage of dual-wield weapons that the player can slay their foes with!
Many weapons in Elden Ring can be dual-wielded by simply placing one of them in each hand.
However, certain weapons are specifically built around dual-wielding and provide a much smoother experience compared to the player just randomly holding two weapons in their hands.
It can take a while to figure out what the best dual-wielding weapons are in Elden Ring because of how much variety the game has to offer. So, we’re here to save you time with our guide on the best combos that you should go for!
Let’s get started.

Best Elden Ring Dual Wield Weapons (Ranking)
Before we get into the list, do keep in mind that this ranking is based on the personal experiences of us and our players. If you think a certain weapon works better for you, then your opinion is right too because it all comes down to experimentation and preference in the end.
1. Godskin Peeler
⚡ Gaming Deals too Good to Pass On ⚡
- Top tier deal.
- Lowest price in 30 days.
- MUX Switch ready.
The Godskin Peeler is one of the best weapons in the game because it deals a lot of physical damage, especially when dual-wielded. The combos that you can use when you have it in both hands look and feel very cool too, so that’s both style and brawn in one package!
You can change its Ash of War to one that inflicts the bleed effect, which makes it even deadlier than it already is. And other than that, Black Flame Tornado is a great option too.
2. Dual Bloodhound’s Fang
Bloodhound’s Fang is one of the most popular weapons in the game, and for good reason.
It scales primarily with Dexterity and Strength, so it can easily be included in most builds. Its physical strength starts at 141 as a single weapon, so you can imagine its power when dual-wielded.
Although it cannot be infused with Ashes of War, it can be enchanted with Magic. And it causes blood loss buildup once you start hitting the enemy, so that makes the overall damage potential even greater. All in all, it’s a very safe option to go for.
3. Dual Starscourge Greatsword
Defeating Radahn is an amazing reward in itself, but getting the Starscourge Greatsword is something that makes the fight worth it even more. It has a lot of physical and magical damage and its Ash of War is amazing too.
It’s great for crowd control and fighting bosses, and unlike other weapons on this list, you don’t even need to duplicate it as it has a dual-wielding stance that you can use.
4. Dual Reduvlas
Two of the coolest weapons that you can find in Elden Ring are the Reduvlas.
They are short, so it’s important for the player to remain close to the enemies. But their speed is immaculate and if you learn how to use them correctly, you can be a very efficient assassin. And you can get it pretty early on in the game too.
What makes it even better is that you can apply a bleed attribute to the weapon. So, if you’re quick on the draw and manage to get a lot of hits in, it will deal a lot of bleed damage to your enemies. It’s just as effective as it sounds, and looks really cool too!
5. Dual Giant Crusher
If you’re a player who wants to go all-out in the strength department regardless of how slow it might become, then the Dual Giant Crusher is what you need. Stack up the Strength stat in your build as high as possible and then equip two Giant Crushers on your character’s hands.
The damage potential that you will have with this duo is insanely high and you can apply things like Royal Knight’s Resolve to make your weapons even deadlier.
The only catch is that you’ll have to put in a lot of effort in getting used to not getting hit when your character is so slow. But once you get the hang of it, you’ll be crushing bosses like they’re nothing.
6. Dual Uchigatana
The Uchigatana is a very cool katana that deals a lot of damage and comes with blood loss buildup. And what makes it even better for players to get is that it’s a part of the starting equipment that you get in the Samurai Class in Elden Ring!
So, you get the first one with extreme ease, and then you can get the second one early on too. And despite the fact that it comes with a blood loss buildup attribute, it can still be infused with Ashes of War.
It looks cool, deals a lot of damage, and isn’t as slow as some of the other dual-wielded weapons on this list!
7. Dual Falchion
Many consider the Falchion a weapon that has a great balance between being fast and high on the damage. It comes with spinning motions that work great for clearing out mobs of weaker enemies, which is great for farming runes.
Not only that, but it only requires 9 Strength and 13 Dex, so you can use it even early on.
When you use two of them, you can infuse them with Ashes of War and add things like the bleed effect to your attacks. The only downside to this weapon is that not many recommend it against bosses that have thicker armor.
But aside from that, it’s a great early-game weapon that can be used against most enemies and medium-level mobs.
You might find this weapon in lists called the ‘Blood Falchion’, but that’s a misconception as many confuse the bleed effect-infused version of the sword as a separate item.
That’s it for our ranking of the best Elden Ring dual wield weapons! We hope that you found your perfect pair on this list and are already on your way to slaying hordes of enemies.
