Elden Ring's weakest enemy reveals horrifying one-shot attack we've never seen before

Elden Ring's weakest enemy reveals horrifying one-shot attack we've never seen before

Usually the enemy is fairly weak, but they're hiding a huge attack

Elden Ring still has new things that can be found throughout the game, with one fan discovering a new enemy attack that many players have never seen before.

The enemy can be found in areas dotted around the map, with the main two areas being Leyndell Catacombs and Miquella's Haligtree, and are named the Lesser Spirit-Called Snails. These enemies summon spirits in order to defeat their enemies, though if a player just goes straight for the snails themselves then you can kill them without having to worry too much about the spirits that they summon.

Elden Ring: Shadow of the Erdtree launches very soon. Take a look at the DLC in action below.

What has been noticed by fans on X (formerly Twitter), however, is that these enemies actually have their own attack.

Game developer Dillon Rogers wrote in a post on the platform: "Someone posted a video that the snails in Elden Ring have a grab attack and I've never seen it in all my hours. It's brutal lmao."

The attack in question involves the snails latching onto the player character, draining the life out of them in one fell swoop. In order for this to happen, you'll have to spend time close to the enemy without killing them, so it's unlikely that most players will see it, but if a player is really curious, then all they need to do is stand next to the enemy and wait for them to attack.

This revelation has taken fans of the FromSoftware game by surprise, showing them that there's still new things to be found in the game even a mere week before the launch of the first and only expansion, Elden Ring: Shadow of the Erdtree. Kinda Funny host and Twitch streamer Andy Cortez (AKA NitroRifle) posted that even after hundreds of hours in the game, he's still surprised: "500 hours in Elden Ring and I have never seen this lmao."
