Elden Ring – How To Get The Starscourge Greatsword (Radahn) Guide

Game Guides

One of the many weapons that you can acquire within Elden Ring is the Starscourge Greatsword. This mighty weapon is classed as a Colossal Sword, meaning they are an advanced version of the Ultra Greatsword.

The Starscourge Greatsword has a skill known as Starcaller Cry, which manages to pull any nearby foes together using a gravitational pull and then slams them down onto the ground.

In order to acquire this specific weapon you will have to fight and defeat a boss known as Starscourge Radahn.


In order to find Starscourge Radahan you will have to head to Redmane Castle, south of Sellia Gateway. From there you will be required to use a portal which will then take you to the Wailing Dunes.

Starscourge Radahn is not actually classed as an optional boss fight, so chances are you will end up fighting against him at some point anyway. So just keep playing until then.


At the start of the fight there will be several summoning messages that we can take advantage of, this will summon a bunch of NPC characters to help aid you.

According to the video posted above (thanks to SweetJohnnyCage – Narrated Guides & Walkthroughs), who has done a superb job at creating a tutorial for this boss fight. It is a good idea to activate each and every summon message that you come across, this it to help build an army and increase your chances of survival.

Radahn mainly attacks using gravity based attacks, which, for phase 1, are easily avoided by rolling out of the way.

When the boss goes below half health it will then trigger phase 2 of the fight, which will lead to Radahn appearing as a Fireball. He is also much more aggressive. His main attack during phase 2 is said to be his meteor attacks that will charge at you.

I would recommend viewing the above video for a better idea on how to defeat this one.

Alternatively it seems that some players have managed to find a glitch for this boss, which results in not summoning any aid at all. It also focuses on mainly attacking Radahn from behind too. Which seems to confuse the boss as it does not know where to hit or aim for its target. This rather cheesy method also seems to avoid entering phase 2 altogether

Whether or not this glitched strategy will work for you is unknown, of course, but it certainly worked for Jake JJZ

When Starscourge Radahn has successfully been defeated it will then drop Radahn’s Great Rune and Rememberance of the Starscourge.


Now that we have managed to take care of Starscourge Radahn we should have the Remembrance of Starscourge in our possession.

What we want to do is take this Remembrance of Starscourge to the Roundtable Hold and speak with Enia. We can then trade the Remembrance of Starscourge for the Starscourge Greatsword.
