Bleed is one of the most valuable status effects available to players across various weapons in Elden Ring. When the bleed status effect procs, enemies are affected by hemorrhage.

When this happens, it leads to blood loss, and enemies instantly lose a massive portion of their health. However, players need to hit enemies multiple times for this status effect to become active.

There are a few weapons that do this quite efficiently compared to others. Here are all weapons that are efficient in procing the bleed status effect.

If players are looking for a dagger that can pretty much destroy enemies through the bleed status effect, then Reduvia is their go-to weapon. This weapon has a very short range, and players need to get close to enemies to land hits.

However, the weapon has a special attack called Reduvia Blood Blade that makes it worth getting. This special attack throws ranged attacks that help stack bleed very fast. The attack consumes FP, but it is extremely powerful.

Hookclaws, just like Reduvia, is an extremely close-range weapon that can be used to inflict the bleed status effect extremely fast. Apart from that, the weapon also has good physical damage and can be quite good in fights.

The final weapon on this list is going to be another katana called Hand of Malenia. This weapon has a really good bleed status build-up, but it also has a very unique special attack called "Waterfowl Dance."

This attack allows the weapon to perform a string of slashing attacks, which helps build up the bleed status effect. This way, players can stack the status effect quite quickly compared to the other weapons on the list, making it extremely potent against bosses.
