Players can find one of the best weapons in Elden Ring, the Hemmorhage-inflicting Scavengers Curved Sword, to the west of Altus Plateau in Mt. Gelmir.
Elden Ring offers players a lot of variety when it comes to weapon choice, such as the amazing Scavengers Curved Sword. This curved sword possesses an innate bleeding effect that can quickly destroy an enemy’s health bar in both PvE and PvP. The Scavengers Curved Sword also provides a lot of flexibility as it can be enchanted by magical effects and infused with Elden Ring’s Ashes of War. On top of everything else, this curved sword also looks very appealing and unique as its blade is tacky with blood and covered in nicks, giving it an intimidating jagged appearance.
The Scavengers Curved Sword innate bleeding is actually an effect known as Hemorrhage that will apply every time a player hits an enemy. Each hit will create a buildup of this effect on the target, and when it reaches a certain amount, it will proc a bloody explosion that deals percentage damage to the enemy’s total health. Since bosses and most formidable creatures in Elden Ring tend to possess very large health pools, this effect can be very devastating throughout the game.

The effectiveness of Hemorrhage can be increased by leveling up the Arcane stat in Elden Ring. This will not increase the amount of damage a target takes, but it will increase the amount of buildup a hit applies, meaning players with a high Arcane will need fewer hits to trigger the Hemmorhage effect. However, it is important to note that, while most enemies in the game are susceptible to bleeding, their resistance to it may vary, and some are even completely immune to this effect.
How To Get the Scavengers Curved Sword In Elden Ring
Finding the Scavengers Curved Sword will require players to first gain access to the Altus Plateau, either by venturing through the Ravine Veiled Village or by activating the Grand Lift of Dectus in Elden Ring. Activating the lift will require players to travel to Fort Haight in eastern Limgrave, and Fort Faroth, in the Dragonbarrow region of Caelid. At the top of each Fort, players will find half of a medallion that, when combined, can be used to ride the Grand Lift of Dectus to the Altus Plateau. If players choose to go through the Ravine Veiled Village instead, they will need to beat a somewhat tough boss, Magma Wyrm Makar, to reach their destination.
After arriving at the Altus Plateau, players can head northeast to find a mysterious wooded area with one of Elden Ring’s minor Erdtrees. Head north of that tree towards the windmills, then follow the main road west that leads into Mt. Gelmir. At the Bridge of Iniquity Site of Grace, continue heading west to find a ladder leading onto an upper ledge. After that, go through the enemy camp and use the naturally formed bridge to the northwest to cross the ravine to the other side. There, players should see a ladder in front of them and a broken cart containing the Scavengers Curved Sword next to it.
