Elden Ring is filled with traps that can surprise players and often lead to their death. Cleverly hidden enemies will ambush users several times throughout their playthrough, but fans can take advantage of messages left by other Elden Ring players to prepare themselves for these traps.
Elden Ring is set in a massive open world, but most of these traps are present in the dungeons and catacombs scattered all over the map. One of the most annoying traps involves the Chariot enemy type that can run over players and deal massive damage. Gamers need to be careful and patient while trying to avoid them, but one Elden Ring player has shared a new tactic that helps in dealing with this trap.
A user named ArunKT26 shared a clip featuring a Chariot trap inside a Hero’s Grave in Elden Ring, who mentions that they had to retrieve their runes and came up with a clever idea to avoid the trap. The clip opens with ArunKT26 walking on lava as the Chariot rushes toward them. As soon as the enemy gets near, the player uses the Raptor of the Mists skill to duck and avoid its attack. ArunKT26 then successfully utilizes this tactic multiple times throughout the video.
This strategy seems relatively simple to pull off and offers a great way for players to get around one of the most annoying traps in Elden Ring. The Raptor of the Mists skill can be obtained by helping Bloody Finger Hunter Yura in his quest. Players should note that it’s not unique to any particular piece of equipment and can be applied to different weapon types.
A fan named HeyHellosh states that they have played Elden Ring for 700 hours but never considered using Raptor of the Mists to circumvent the Chariots. Another user mentions that this skill is especially useful in avoiding attacks that are difficult to dodge, but claims that it takes more time to recover after performing this move. One gamer also recommends using Elden Ring’s Bloodhound Step skill to bypass it, but ArunKT26 claims to have never used it as it makes the game too easy.
It appears that players are not fond of catacombs and similar dungeons in Elden Ring, as many fans complain about being burned out. They can get extremely repetitive, especially in the second half of the game, as most users have already explored dozens of similar types of dungeons by then. Regardless, this video shows that there are ways to avoid even the most infuriating traps in Elden Ring.
Elden Ring is out now for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X.
