Lol, this page should probably mention that the carriage is defended by an annoyingly strong ulcerated tree spirit falling from the sky as you approach with 8817 HP. Got me good the first time as I casually strolled into the camp of just jabroni soldiers and bro fell from the sky and crushed me and the rest of the soldiers. Miyazaki probably thought it was hilarious to have a giant monster fall from the sky and crush you as you approach the giant crusher, haha.
If you are low lvl or just want to the weapon without killing the tree spirit, you should approach the camp from the back where the carriage with the weapon is, the tree spirit will still fall and crush the soldiers but it won't notice you if you are slightly outside the camp when it falls and the wooden side wall of the camp is between you and there is no direct line of sight between you and the tree spirit. You can then crouch and sneak into the camp from the back, jump to the platform of the carriage, open the chest and get the weapon.
Note that the the tree spirit's dormant position has its tail brushing the carriage so it's highly likely it will notice you at some point in the process of you jumping onto the carriage, opening the chest and getting the weapon. However, even if you get knocked down by it's attacks once or twice, it should be easy enough to hit the prompts to procure the weapon from the carriage. You can just avoid the hassle of escaping by making it a suicide run but note that in case you want to go back to a bonfire, you have to get on your horse and RUN to the central capital outskirts bonfire. Due to its distance closing attacks, you can barely outpace the tree spirit on horse. It is insanely aggressive, will follow you all the way and only disappear once you actually reach the circular area surrounding the bonfire.
