How to kill a Furnace Golem in Elden Ring

Wondering how to kill a Furnace Golem? While they are slow, due to their gigantic size, these war machines offer quite the challenge to players keen to take them on.

A Furnace Golem can spot you from a fair distance and will summon clusters of fireballs and shoot flames from their hands and upper back. The latter attack has good range, so if you’re just passing, then be sure to steer clear of these. If you’re exploring the new parts of the open world, here are the best Elden Ring builds to take on new Elden Ring bosses.

How to fight a Furnace Golem

The best way to kill a Furnace Golem in Elden Ring is to use Torrent to evade its close combat attacks, consisting of explosions and flames caused by the golem stomping its feet. If the Furnace Golem is attacking from an elevated position, they summon fireballs and attack with their arms instead.

Unlike most enemies in Elden Ring, Furnace Golems are invulnerable to damage, featuring a limited number of weak points which you need to hit to take them down. These weak points include their faceplate, the flame opening on their back, and occasionally, their legs. The legs only work if the Furnace Golem you’re attacking doesn’t have spike armor, but there are different variants in the world.

How to evade attacks using Torrent

Here are a few ways of killing a Furnace Golem in Elden Ring:

  • Use Hefty Fire Pots and throw them into the chamber on top of the golem in the center of its back, triggering an explosion.
  • Uses Stance Breaks by hitting its legs (only works if spike armor isn’t present). The golem will fall and you can attack its faceplate.
  • Projectiles or spells can reach the faceplate, arrows, or the Night Comet spell is good if you’re attacking from the ground.
  • If the golem is in an elevated position, you can either melee the faceplate or throw Hefty Fire Pots at the golem’s basket, dealing significant damage.
