Although Elden Ring’s Player vs. Player is there, it works a bit differently to what Souls players might be used to.

Old timers know that PvP moments were always part of FromSoftware’s games. Most Soulsborne players know the thrill of invading or being invaded by enemy players.

Thanks to Elden Ring’s Colosseum DLC, there’s so much more to the game’s PvP than invading others. At a Colosseum, players can fight in many different game modes, in solo and team-based fights.

Here’s How to find all PvP Colosseum Locations in Elden Ring and how to fight in them.

How to Fight Elden Ring’s Colosseums

You will find a Colosseum in each of these areas: Limgrave, Caelid, and Leyndall.

All you need to do is unlock the PvP modes by visiting the Colosseums. There are three different PvP Colosseums in the Lands Between, each with its own rules.

So, depending on the Colosseum you enter, you will participate in different game modes with varying rules. You might fight in teams, alone and with no spirit ashes, alone with spirit ashes, and so on.

Although you must enter a Colosseum at least once to start participating in the special PvP modes, it is important to note two things.

The first one is quite obvious, but some are harder to reach than others. For instance, the Limgrave Colosseum doesn’t have any significant obstacles, but one can’t really say the same about the Colosseum in Caelid.

The other one is that you don’t need to go inside a Colosseum to fight in the PvP modes. Once you unlock a Colosseum, you can access its PvP modes by interacting with the Marika statue in the main room of the Roundtable Hold, right where the site of grace is.

Limgrave Colosseum

At the Limgrave Colosseum, players can fight in United Combat and Combat Ordeal. The Limgrave Colosseum is the easiest one to reach. Therefore, this will probably be the most populated PvP mode for a while.

Since United Combats can be messy, Area of Effect attacks can be used to distract your opponents and hit as many enemies at once as you can. At the same time, your team members should be trying to finish them off with big weapons.

If you are having trouble finding this Colosseum, fast-travel to the Warmaster’s Shack and head north.

That’s it. You will eventually bump into this structure. It’s worth checking the map from time to time, though.

The Caelid Colosseum

The Caelid Colosseum is located near the site of grace called Deep Siofra River Well in Caelid. On the map, it will be to the north, but it can take some work to get there. 

You will find two giant golems in your way, but only after you dodge a few other enemies. Before getting to a site of grace close to the Colosseum, you must survive the underground world by crossing the Siofra River.

This may take a while, so make sure that you are overpowered when you finally decide to do this. Once you win, the jar will let you in.

First, you must find the Third Church of Marika in Mistwood. Then, head south to find the Siofra River Well — the Mistwood one, not the Site of Grace. Use the giant tree to help you find it. It is really hard to miss. 

Once down there, things start getting a bit harder. There are many items here, but you can also go through all the enemies and get to the next elevator. You can always come back later.

Again, there is a lot to be done here, but you basically want to reach the elevator at the end of the map. Check the video above for a safe route that will take you right to it once you are ready to go.

Once you get to the elevator, you need to use a Stonesword Key to activate it, so make sure you bought or saved at least one for this moment. Use the key, call the elevator, and head up to the Siofra River Well Site of Grace.

This is the last part. Now head to the only possible path north. Deal with the golems the best way you can. I like approaching them as soon as possible and hitting their ankles with charged attacks. 

With them out of the way, keep moving toward the giant vase thing. The entrance to the Colosseum will be behind it.

Leyndell Colosseum, The Royal Colosseum

The Leyndell Colosseum, also called The Royal Colosseum, is located southwest of the capital. You will find it by following its inner walls.

By arriving from East Capital Rampart, you can see this Colosseum as soon as you keep moving forward.

Just go straight ahead and, instead of climbing on the tree’s roots, go under it and keep moving to the Colosseum’s position. It’s really easy to find.

The most significant problem here lies with the guards. You will face a giant enemy near the tree root, but that enemy never spawns again.

There are also two strong enemies guarding the Colosseum, so you will have to deal with them before getting there.

Since Leyndell is much closer to the late game than the other two Colosseums, players can expect more powerful adversaries and well-prepared builds.

Besides, since the fights are 1v1, the builds might become more common. That said, all souls players have been weirdly gimmicked at least once, so watch out.

PvP Game Modes

As mentioned above, each Colosseum provides a different kind of PvP with its unique set of rules.

On top of that, you can also tweak the game settings to allow or forbid, for instance, the use of Spirit Ashes.

I particularly like using Latenna, the Aubinauric Woman, in team fights. Her homing missiles are great for disrupting the enemy while I approach with my heavy weapons.

In a game with six players and a bunch of players already fighting one another, the inclusion of Spirit Ashes can be silly, fun, and annoying at the same time.

With so many things on the screen, it might be a good idea to check how to increase your FPS in Elden Ring. There’s a good chance you will need it.

United Combat

In United Combat, players are part of a team. Each team has either two or three people.

The objective here is to take down as many enemies as possible within a certain amount of time. If you are defeated, you will respawn after a while.

The victory goes to the team who has taken out more enemies.

Combat Ordeal

This is a game mode in which players fight for themselves against all the other enemies in the area. Combat Ordeal is a battle royale mode.

Defeated enemies respawn after a while, and the player with the highest score will be the winner of this game mode.

Duel Mode

In Duel Mode, two players fight until the first one is defeated once. There’s no respawning in this game mode. This is the classic 1v1 game mode that most people would complain about if it wasn’t in the game.

Combat Ordeal

This is a game mode in which players fight for themselves against all the other enemies in the area. Combat Ordeal is a battle royale mode.

Defeated enemies respawn after a while, and the player with the highest score will be the winner of this game mode.
