The Black Steel Greathammer can be found at the Church of Consolation in the Gravesite Plain region, the first area of the expansion. Players can just travel east of the Gravesite Plain Site of Grace and follow the path around the giant cliffside.

The path will lead to the destroyed Church of Consolation and a campsite. Be sure to clear out the campsite of enemies first to not get overwhelmed by the upcoming battle. There are also two Scadutree Fragments players can pick up in the church to boost their stats at any Site of Grace.

Elden Ring players can get the Black Steel Greathammer by defeating the knight wielding the weapon inside the church. It is not a boss or special enemy, but just a large knight with a very large hammer to swing around.

It is best to lead the knight away from the church to have more room to fight. You can even circle around the knight and hit him while on horseback to take him down if you do not want to face him head-on.

The Black Steel Greathammer will drop once defeated. The weapon has the Endure Skill, which lets players boost poise to brace against attacks and receive less damage. It does require players to have 25 Strength, 17 Dexterity, and 17 Faith to wield.
