Elden Ring players score PvP kills by blowing themselves up


Over the previous two weeks, a prevalent approach in Elden Ring competitive multiplayer has seen Tarnished sacrifice their own bodies to eliminate their opponents.

While Elden Ring has a broad range of weapons and spells for killing enemies, some of the game's more cunning online invaders prefer to go out in a blaze of glory if it means securing a kill or two. Even the most powerful synergies in Elden Ring are unlikely to be able to consistently wipe out three human foes at the same time. Even if those combinations exist, they'll never be as amusing as the footage below (h/t Highlight Reel's Chris Person).

The Flask of Wondrous Physick, which can be located after a short journey north from Elden Ring's beginning point, is responsible for all of this. Unlike the Flasks of Crimson and Cerulean Tears, which replenish health and magic, this unique, one-time use consumable may be altered at checkpoints to provide a range of advantages. It's like having your own own Coca-Cola Freestyle machine, limited only by the Tears you find along the way.

Do you need a rapid dose of faith? Put the Faith-knot Crystal Tear in your Flask of Wondrous Physick and sip it shortly before combat to give your incantations a boost. Maybe I can persuade you to learn about the Crimsonwhorl Bubbletear's capacity to transform incoming magical harm into health? When it comes to blowing oneself up, the Ruptured Crystal Tear is the weapon of choice. It also features a twin, unlike the great majority of its competitors, which means you can equip both for an even louder boom.

When you mix a Flask of Wondrous Physick infused with two Ruptured Crystal Tears with other equipment, things get a little crazy.

Solid Hitoshi of Elden Ring used Royal Knight's Resolve (a skill that increases your damage output) to boost his explosion, then used Bloodhound Step (a fast-moving, nearly invisible dodge manoeuvre) to quickly position his Tarnished between the three marks, scoring a hat trick in the blink of an eye. JellyDiscrete, on the other hand, illustrated how the Starscourge Greatswords' gravity abilities may be employed to draw unwary opponents into range before going kablooey.

Elden Ring manages to be one of the most humorous games in recent times, thanks to its player interactions. It was only yesterday we reported how Elden Ring PvP's are being ruined by Deathblight builds.
