The Fingercreeper is a type of Wildlife Creature in Elden Ring. Fingercreepers are grotesque creatures comprised of gigantic disembodied hands, grafted together and given life. Their behavior and method of traversal are highly reminiscent of a spider.

 

Extremely grotesque creatures resembling malformed hands with many fingers. They often lie in wait, crushing victims as they pass by, and can fire immobilizing projectiles from the ring on their finger.

Fingercreeper Notes & Tips

  • Susceptible to Bleed. Five R1 swings with a 45-Bleed weapon was enough to proc it, and it did enough damage to finish it off.
  • Highly suspectible to any weapon/spell dealing Fire Damage. Hit with such weapon stuns them for few seconds and triggers an animation of "dusting off", which deals them additional damage
  • The Fingercreeper has a unique animation when on fire for both damage and death.

      i didn't know they had that dog reaction to fire.
      if I knew that I would use my torch like I do against the miners and sometimes the crystal dudes

      I only learned because it was seen in a Zullie video

          I would like to talk to the developers who designed and approved of this thing. Really curious to know the thought process and testing methodology of enemies in Elden Ring.

            Black Flame spells/weapon arts melt these awful things, fire is very effective against them in general though thankfully.

              WHY do they exist jesus ****ing christ. These + fire breathing birds + Revenants can all go to hell. **** them all to hell, they are the worst enemies to have ever existed in the entire series.

                Do these hands belong to all the dead giants in the snowfields? And each is two hands that have been grafted together

                  If you don't have fire at your disposal, i found that you can semi reliably stunlock them with double rapiers

                  • Try Fire's Deadly Sin with Bestial Vitality or any other healing-over-time thing. You won't lose much health, and it helps out a lot with the ones underground.

                      +8 uchigatana w/ flames of redmanes cuts through them fast but oh my god, the animation of them on fire is the worst thing I’ve seen so far in this game

                        The only thing that makes this enemy bad is the input buffer. God I absolutely hate input queuing in this game, horrible.

                          Try a couple L2s with Flame of the Redmanes on Misericorde, breaks their stances for a crit and easy kill.

                            these guys are susceptible to fire damage. be it fire incantations, fire pots, fire grease, fire arrows. for me, fire pots really made my run through caria manor grounds a LOT easier. two fire pots are enough to stun the ones underground and one is enough for the ones already roaming around.

                              In Stormveil castle I switched from using a mace to a great sword. Had a much easier time especially with the banished knights. Until I came to Carian Manor great sword was my first choice. But with these bad boys I gave mace again a try since great sword was too slow for the attack streaks. Mace solved the fingers for me, especially with easily staggering for a crit hit, via guard attacks

                                My theory is that they were created by Rykard as further blasphemy against the golden order and the two fingers. If you look at Rykard’s hands he also has an excess of fingers on each one along with a collection of rings.

                                  I note that these are among the few monsters vulnerable to madness, and very vulnerable at that, it procs on them with just one or two casts of flame of frenzy and because of their weakness to fire, they take extra damage from the burning debuff.

                                    They have to be related to the 2 and 3 fingers in some way, right? Like weird bastard offspring of the 2 fingers? I remember when trailers showed one I thought they might be intelligent, given that they wear jewelry... but they don't seem to be? I can't figure them out.

                                      Cool creature, but where are the giant FEET monsters??? Miyazaki should stop being so selfish and give the community what we really want. I don't blame him for keeping all of them to himself, but this has really let down my Elden Ring experience. Hopefully we are treated a bit better in the DLC...

                                        These hand monsters are legitimately the most terrifying monsters in the game. I have a few things to say about them, though.
                                        1: Would they be good at playing huge Pianos, or would they just crawl all over them?
                                        2: Do they in any way have a connection to the Three and Two Fingers? Like are the Fingers just housing units for the Greater Will or whatever, and they saw an easy host in a fragmented Fingercreeper?
                                        3: Do the Fingercreepers know magic, or is the fact they literally flip you off to cast their annoying spell just done by the sheer rudeness shaping into magic-ness?
                                        4: I haven't seen any creatures that have hands like the figercreepers, but clearly they don't just reproduce on their own. Are they Giant hands brought back to life by Erdtree voodo crap?
                                        5: HOW THE HECK DO I TAKE THEESE HAND BOIS DOWN!!!????

                                          Fire is indeed a weakness for them but I found lightning to be effective as well. Especially for the ones buried in the ground. Get close to the areas where there are dozens of them buried and charge up Ancient Dragon Lightning. Moments later you'll have charred fingercreepers. Only the large ones seem to be able to survive a single cast but thats barely only coming out of it with maybe 5% of their HP left.

                                            Hmm, another DS3 reference to the Monstrosity of Sin. And people say Elden Ring has no connection to DS...

                                            • Damage Absorptions:
                                              -10 Absorption for Standard, Strike, and Piercing
                                              -40 Slash!
                                              0 For all others, including fire. But fire attacks are highly effective causing them to roll around and take a very high amount of damage. It is important to note to NOT interrupt the rolling animation, or they won't take the full amount of damage the special animation causes.
                                              If you intend to farm them, be sure to use a slashing weapon and perhaps a different weapon or spell to hit them with fire, like a torch. While it is easier to simply infuse your weapon with fire, you are also reducing your slash damage which they take +40% damage from. Bleed is also effective. So maybe a katana + torch combo.
                                              Resistances:
                                              Immune to Sleep
                                              112 for Poison, Rot, Freeze
                                              84 Bleed

                                                Banished Knight Engall +3 and fire arrows make the big hands manageable. They're tough on their own, especially two at once.

                                                  Could these be hands of the giants? We find the enemies strangely in the land of the giants, and many of the giants seem to have their hands chopped off or arms buried in the ground. In fact I really couldn’t find a handed-giant, thought someone could fact check that! Could it be some kind of punishment for having fought against the erdtree, hands forever bound to service?

                                                  • Is there a lore explanation for these things? I assume they are tied to the Carian royal family in some way. Are they naturally occurring beings or are they artificially created?

I need more context as to why. Any ideas? I do not have the time to do an in-depth search and I haven't found anything on the internet yet.

                                                          As far as I have seen, they consistently drop Somber Smithing Stone [2], even with respawning them. I was helping a partner out, taking turns through the manor, and dying a few times each side. We just got to the second grace, and I have THIRTY SSS[2] in my inventory. Admittedly, I am playing an arcane character, but still.

                                                            Honestly, just go grab hot wetstone first in Caelid or just get yourself some kind of fire spell. Even the torch all the way south in the castle at weeping peninsula is worth it. Otherwise... Just avoid it, it's so cancerous.

                                                            • Ok, after an entire afternoon trying to clear the Giants' Gravepost area (the one before the Fire Giant boss on the Mountaintops of the Giants) and malding over the ****ing ginormous ass fingercreepers (not the M-sized one, I'm not exaggerating, it's the ****ing XXL ones), I finally found a way to deal with them as melee:

                                                              >>> Quickstep/Bloodhound Step (and bleed) <<<

                                                              They stay out of melee range. The only times they're in range are when they are charging at you, and there's no dodging the dogshit charge with constant XXL hitbox, and by the time you're back up on your feet proper, they'll've already charged past you out of range again. You can dodge the jump-flick and get a meager attack in, but then you're in range for another charge or clawing and there aren't enough i-frames to dodge those either. They don't burn, and they don't seem to stagger even when you hit the stump. Even if you try to break their posture, you're dead before you can do it anyway.

                                                              Enter Bloodhound Step. You have a **** ton of i-frames, more than enough to phase through the charges, the flicks and the clawings, and you can cover a lot of distance. I put it on the 2 Hoslow's Petal Whips I have with blood infusion for the long reach. Then I just whipped the **** out of them and bled them dry. Couldn't even touch me. The difference made is so insane. I'm so mad I didn't think of it earlier.

                                                              I'd always been on the side that doesn't give a **** about quickstep/BHstep because I thought I can make do with normal dodging and sprinting away. Now I'm successfully converted. I'm beginning to believe. BHstep is the way. I have spoken.

                                                                I prefer these over the monstrous foot abominations that would swallow you in the Profaned Capital in DS3.

                                                                  • Anonymous

I cannot stand this enemy, it’s so unsettling and gross. Kudos to the designer that made this abomination.

                                                                    • Anonymous

It will take a large amount of damage during this animation. However, they appear to only be susceptible to this ONCE, and attacking them during the animation can interrupt both it and the animation. Passive sources of damage, such as the magma pools left over from a Fire Sorcery, can also interrupt it; therefore, it’s best to trigger it using something which hits only once and leaves no environmental hazards. Wait until the hand finishes hurting itself, THEN keep attacking.

                                                                      • Anonymous

Frenzied Burst takes significant life but also causes them to be stunned, rolling around on fire. It’s one of my favorite spells due to its range alone but this is a great surprise.

                                                                              • The smaller versionof these at mountaintops, those who attack in clusters, drop the somber 7 very often. I got 4 stones from a single cluster consisting of 8-9 hand monsters. It took me about 20 sec to one shot them all with my Naginata, low risk high reward. Could be a bug.

                                                                                    A theory about how the Spider Hands came to be: Judging by how they appeared like two hands merged together at the wrists, it might be possible that they used to be humans, sorcerers who knew about or even have seen/met Two Fingers or their ilk and witnessed their power.

                                                                                    Inspired by the power the Fingers wielded, the sorcerers sought to be like them, delving into forbidden lore and experimented on others and themselves to become like Two Fingers with all the power that comes with being like said being.

                                                                                    Their knowledge seeking and experimentation went terribly wrong/was a partial success and they became the animalistic spider hands, their physical forms became similar to The Two Fingers but without the power they wanted to have nor the minds they used to have.

                                                                                    • Ugh... the stunlock, man. You get hit once and they'll just get two more hits for free. Why bother with a health bar if getting hit once seals your fate?

                                                                                        • the extra fingers, rings and colour of this thing kind of reminds me of rykards snake hands when he pulled out that sword. probably too long a stretch tho for an idea.

                                                                                              • Anonymous

I can't get out of their stunlock combos and it's ridiculous. The one in the capital sewers scared the **** out of me and had me trapped at a dead end, and I can't find any melee openings. There's not enough room to maneuver in there for consistent projectile shooting, along with all the smaller hand spiders. Any tips?

                                                                                                      "Bludgeon made of an enormous finger sheathed in several heavy rings. Thought to have been cut from an ancestor of the Fingercreeper.

                                                                                                      Some life yet remains in this legacy of an ancient act of blasphemy, as evidenced by the barely perceptible warmth it still exudes."
