Elden Ring: How to wield two-handed weapons
There are times when you might want to throw caution to the wind, do away with the shield and take up a two-handed weapon to increase the damage of your attacks. To do this, press E + left or right-click depending on which hand you have the weapon equipped in. If you are using a controller, Y (or triangle) + buttons on the left or right shoulder do the same.
If you choose to switch to two-handed mode, you’ll need to make sure you’re light on your feet and ready to dodge or turn in the path of incoming attacks, so remember to load up your gear. You can deal more damage – and you still have the ability to land light or heavy attacks, but you’ll be more vulnerable without a shield to hide behind.
