Best Weapons to Kill Elden Ring AFK Rune Farmers in PvP

Mohgwyn’s Sacred Spear

When hunting down AFK rune farmers in Elden Ring’s PvP, the best melee weapon you can use is Mohgwyn’s Sacred Spear.

Not only does it rank highly on our list of best Arcane weapons in Elden Ring, but it has a weapon skill that is perfect for taking down AFK rune farmers.

The Bloodboon Ritual skill does some huge damage to a wide area of effect so it can damage players who are out of reach!

To get Mohgwyn’s Sacred Spear, you first need to know how to get to Mohgwyn Palace in Elden Ring. Then you need to defeat the boss Mohg, Lord of Blood, and trade his Remembrance with Enia at Roundtable Hold.

If you’re struggling, use this trick to easily kill any boss in Elden Ring!

Jar Cannon

Secondly, you’ll want to get the Jar Cannon. While any of the best bows in Elden Ring can work to pick off AFK rune farmers from far away, the Jar Cannon is even more effective. This is because it knocks back enemies that you shoot with it.

Anyone perched on a precarious ledge will be sent flying to their death after you shoot them with it. This means that it can be a one-shot kill for plenty of the most popular AFK rune farming spots!

Although, you can also upgrade this cannon using Somber Smithing Stones.

To get the Jar Cannon, you first need to know how to climb Mt. Gelmir in Elden Ring. Then you must defeat the Demi-Human Queen Margot boss at the end of Volcano Cave.

I love how people blame elden ring pvp toxicity on AFK rune farmers. The Elden Ring pvp community was toxic way before. Do I agree with people AFK farming runes, no, no I don't but I don't feel like it makes pvp any more toxic then it already is. I will however defend AFK rune farmers because when they die they don't have to deal with the hate mail such as OMG you're trash, get on my level or the ever famous teabag. People who would otherwise suck at pvp can now make hard-core pvp players enjoy the hell they put regular players through.
