Boss(es) The Concierge
In the old days, the bridge linked the village to the prison and was only used on special occasions. In the old days...

The Black Bridge is the first boss biome encountered in Dead Cells. It is a long bridge at the entrance of Stilt Village, where the Concierge stands to guard the path.

This bridge separates from the prison complex and leads back to the village. Darkness has now set, and the full moon has risen into the starry sky. A prisoner from the village would be excited to be so close to home... Yet so far. One cannot expect to be safe soon. The prison warden still remains valent, even if he's not quite the same.

General information[edit | edit source]

Access and exit[edit | edit source]

The Black Bridge can be accessed from either the Ramparts or Ossuary. Two exits are available at the other end of the bridge, leading either to the Stilt Village or to the Slumbering Sanctuary (requiring the Spide rune).

Challenger rune[edit | edit source]

Upon the player's first victory against the Concierge, the Challenger rune will drop. this rune gives access to the Daily Run mode.

Beating the Concierge will award a number of blueprints, namely for the Heavy Crossbow and Impaler weapons, as well as for the Melee, Tranquility and Alienation mutations (in that order).

In addition, the blueprint for the Root Grenade is found behind the 15 minute timed door located in the Collector transition area directly after the Black Bridge.

Concierge outfits[edit | edit source]

Beating the Concierge will also reward the player with one of his outfits. There are 5 Concierge outfits, one for each difficulty from Normal (0 BSC) to Nightmare mode (4 BSC). Note that the outfit of the lowest difficulty remaining is always the one that drops., e.g. the Classic outfit will drop on 4 BSC if it hasn't been looted yet.

  • 0 BSC: Classic Concierge Outfit
  • 1 BSC: Picollo Concierge Outfit
  • 2 BSC: Misunderstood Concierge Outfit
