An Elden Ring player has shared a satisfying video of them killing Deathbirds and Death Rite Birds with a single hit. Elden Ring features several annoying enemies and bosses, and players will face some of them multiple times over the course of their playthroughs.
The Death Rite birds in Elden Ring are probably among the most annoying bosses in the game, as they can hit players with a series of quick attacks, not giving them enough time to heal or strike back. Players will also encounter Deathbirds as they journey across Elden Ring’s world, and while they are not as strong as Death Rite birds, gamers can still easily die to them. Now, one player aims to seek revenge for all the gamers these birds have killed.
A Reddit user named Average_str_build has shared a video from Elden Ring, showing the various Deathbirds and Death Rite Birds they have killed with a single hit. The video features Average_str_build visiting different locations in the world of Elden Ring and using a specific weapon skill on these Deathbirds, killing them irrespective of how much health the opponents have. Average_str_build has shared the build in one of the comments, confirming that they are using the Inseparable Sword for the purpose of this video.
The Inseparable Sword in Elden Ring is a Greatsword that comes with a weapon skill called Sacred Blade, which fires a golden projectile of sorts at the enemies. As seen in the video, the Sacred Blade skill can deal a ton of damage, as it kills all the Deathbirds and Death Rite Birds with a single strike.
Some users in the comments section ask how the weapon is dealing so much damage to the Deathbirds, and Average_str_build states that they are using some specific buffs and talismans available in Elden Ring to increase their output. They also mention that Death Rite birds almost always spawn at night, so gamers may have to pass the time by using the given feature at a Site of Grace. On the other hand, one fan claims to have never encountered Deathbirds despite beating Elden Ring multiple times with different characters.
It appears that other gamers are also aware of this strategy, as a different Elden Ring player uploaded a similar video in which they killed a Death Rite Bird with a single hit. This video also features the Sacred Blade weapon skill, but Average_str_build applies this tactic to the many Deathbirds and Death Rite birds available in the game instead of a single encounter.
Elden Ring is available now on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
