An Elden Ring fan finds a potential weapon hidden in the Shadow of the Erdtree DLC Trailer as the community plans who they will use it against.

  • There is a potentially hidden weapon in the Elden Ring DLC trailer, possibly tied to a hand-to-hand combat mechanic.
  •  Details spotted in the trailer suggest the belt may unlock a special attack. Fans are excited about the possibility of using it against a challenging boss.
  •  The community awaits confirmation of the theory in the upcoming release.

An Elden Ring player has found a hidden weapon in the Shadow of the Erdtree DLC trailer which many seem to have missed all this while. The hand-to-hand combat mechanic has been one of the most talked about aspects of the trailer, and it seems like the Elden Ring community has finally figured out what makes it possible.

The Shadow of the Erdtree DLC trailer was released a couple of months ago, and just like most FromSoftware reveals, it has managed to stir up quite a bit of intrigue around it. Fans have been debating about multiple aspects of the trailer, ranging from the origins of the protagonist Messmer to the purpose of some of the NPCs showcased. For instance, the latest obsession for the Elden Ring community seems to be the glowing worm showcased in the trailer, and many are eagerly waiting to interact with it in the game. Amid that, a new detail has emerged from the trailer.

In a new post on the Elden Ring subreddit, user stargazr331 spots an interesting detail in the Shadow of the Erdtree DLC trailer. During the sequence where the developers showcase the newly added hand-to-hand combat in Elden Ring, the character can be seen wearing a belt. While that might seem like a mere armor piece, what is crucial to note is that another promotional illustration that showcases the same dropkick attack also features the character wearing the crest.

While it is possible that this is just a mere coincidence, the fact that further solidifies the claim is that the rest of the Elden Ring armor set is entirely different in both situations. This likely suggests that it is the belt that might unlock the attack, something that fans have been curious to know more about for quite a while now.

Elden Ring Fans Want Revenge Against Hoarah Loux With New Weapon

Fans are excited about the possibility of a belt adding the melee combat option, with many drawing parallels with a championship belt. In particular, many seem to be excited about using it against Elden Ring‘s Hoarah Loux, a boss who has some frustrating melee combat moves. Another interesting speculation is that the different styles of the belt could influence what fighting style the player could have. While players are already gearing up to design their martial arts-focused Elden Ring characters after seeing the hand-to-hand combat in the trailer, this new discovery seems to make the entire build even more fascinating for the community. Whether it actually turns out to be true or is just a coincidence remains to be seen.
