Go to the Steel Watch Foundry

Your first stop is the Steel Watch Foundry, located by the Grey Harbour Docks Waypoint. If you haven’t revealed this section of the map yet, it’s almost directly south of the House of Grief. Naturally, you need to lockpick your way in. That also means you’ll probably end up in a few fights against the Steel Watchers that want you to leave because you’re in a restricted area.

Choose to Help the Workers or Kill Them

Once you enter the security office, you learn about the workers’ situation and how their families are being held hostage. Depending on how you’re playing this run, you can either go save the hostages, or continue deeper into the foundry. If you choose the latter, you’ll have to fight through without the help of the workers.

Fight the Steel Watcher Titan

Enter the laboratory, then get to the Control Centre Antechamber on the north wall and lockpick it open. Continue into the Control Centre. When combat starts, a Steel Watcher Titan comes up in the middle of the room. You loot Gontr Mael from his body.

That’s what you need to know about how to get Gontr Mael in Baldur’s Gate 3. It’s more fighting and a longer chain of requirements compared to some other weapons, but if you’re disabling the Steel Watchers, you might as well grab it while you’re there.
