The Beast Claw is a Trick Weapon in Bloodborne; it's associated with The Blood Beast Covenant.

 

Beast Claw Description

"Beastly weapon wielded by Irreverent Izzy.
Crafted by chiseling the long bones of an undead darkbeast and fastening them to the weapon. The bones are still alive, and when unleashed, grant its wielder a spurt of beastly power.
As flesh is flayed and blood is sprayed, the beast within awakens, and in time, the wielder of this weapon surges with both strength and feverish reverie."

 

Beast Claw Mode Information

  • The regular form is a simple claw weapon that is used like an extended fist.
  • The transformed mode morphs the Hunter's arms into a werewolf form.
  • If you have the Beast's Embrace rune equipped, this weapon will gain additional attacks and change how the Hunter fights.
    • For more information, check the Beast's Embrace rune page on the new effects it has on the Beast Claw.

 

 

Location

Normal

  • Ailing Loran Chalice: Layer 2 treasure room. Room is on the right when exiting the elevator from first layer boss fight, before the second layers lantern.
  • Can be bought from messengers for 34000 echoes after acquisition.
  • Can be bought from messengers after co-operation with player who has them. This only occurs in Hunter's dream before fight with Gehrman or Moon Presence. It is not needed to complete any Chalice Dungeons. It is unknown if this is glitch or intentional. Was patched by 1.07 or 1.08.

Uncanny Beast Claw Mode

Lost Beast Claw Mode

  • Lower Loran Root Chalice (Cursed/Fetid/Rotten)
  • Glyph: xeqqu3t7 (Layer 1, At the end of first side area on the right from Chamber of the Seal) (There's also a Blood Rock on layer 2)

 

 

Player Notes

  • The regular form of this weapon acts like a simple fist/claw weapon.
    • It's useful for quick attacks against an opponent when you aren't quite ready for the transformed claw's Beasthood mode.
      • However, keep in mind this weapon has a slightly faster attack speed when transformed.
      • Learn when to strike the opponent and unleash the full fury of the Beast Claw while utilizing the increased damage dealt from Beasthood.
    • Remember that you can also use a Firearm in this mode.
    • Your ability to Rally is slightly higher in regular form compared to the transformed mode.
  • When transformed, the true power of the Beast Claw is unleashed.
    • The attacks in this stance will create a perpetual Beast Blood Pellet effect.
      • If you use an actual Beast Blood Pellet, it will not change anything in regards to the Beasthood generated by this weapon.
      • In fact, it resets the Beasthood meter when the pill's effect wears off, which can potentially be harmful if you depended on the increased damage inflicted on opponents.
    • Transforming back into the regular form will not reset the Beasthood meter.
      • Switching to a different weapon will not reset the meter as well.
      • Due to this fact, you can use the transformed claws to build up the Beasthood meter, then switch to a different weapon and enjoy its effects while it lasts.
  • The fast attacks of this weapon make it ideal for poison blood gems.
  • It can be buffed with Fire Paper, Bolt Paper and the Empty Phantasm Shell.
    • You can also modify its damage type with blood gems.
    • However, because non-physical damage isn't affected by Beasthood, nor does it build up the meter, high arcane builds aren't very effective with this weapon.
  • When facing mobs of enemies, use your superior attack speed to effectively hit and run.
    • The Beast Claw does have some multi-attacks, but in general it's not a weapon suited for fighting mobs.
    • Keep in mind it can kill enemies very quickly if you have high Beasthood.

Regular Moveset
Move Damage Type & Modifier[1] Stamina Effect
R1 Combo physical_atk.jpg1.00x
Beast Embrace: 1.00x, 1.00x, 1.00x, 1.10x
15 Low stamina per attack means this combo can be strung together for a long time. Also, while R1 combos generally have the player move forward while attacking, the rapid strikes of this weapon allow for faster and further travel, meaning the combo naturally pursues opponents. The combo alternates between attacks from right to left and left to right. The first is right to left in a downward diagonal, then mirrored from left to right, then right to left mostly horizontal around waist level, and then mirrored from left to right again, another right to left near mid level but with a more noticeable upward drift, followed by a downward diagonal from left to right. The combo then repeats starting with the first waist high horizontal slash from right to left. Be warned that the low weight of the weapon makes it difficult to stagger enemies.
Quickstep R1 physical_atk.jpg0.98x 25 All four directions result in a fast punch forward with the claw. The front step is the only attack which doesn't hop forward, and the punch is delivered faster compared to the other directions.
Backstep R1 physical_atk.jpg0.98x
Beast Embrace: .95x
25 A nearly perfect horizontal slash across the body from right to left following a quick hop forward.
Rolling R1 physical_atk.jpg0.94x 25 After the roll completes, the weapon is thrust forward in a punching motion.
Dash R1 physical_atk.jpg1.00x 20 (+run) The dash is completed with a swipe from right to left at mid level. The attack drifts upward slightly.
R2 Attack physical_atk.jpg1.28x
Beast Embrace: 1.20x
35 A deliberate windup behind the hunter's back is then turned into a strong swipe from right to left across the body.
Charged physical_atk.jpg1.83x
Beast Embrace: 1.40x
50 The charge extends the windup from the R2 and then delivers an uppercut.
Backstep R2 physical_atk.jpg1.23X
Beast Embrace: 1.25x
35 A quick hop forward and the weapon is brought slightly overhead and then across the body from right shoulder to the side of the left foot in a haymaker.
Dash R2 physical_atk.jpg1.28x 40 (+run) The claw is thrust forward in a punching motion at the end of the dash.
Leap physical_atk.jpg1.53x
Beast Embrace: 1.30x
50 The claw is raised while the hunter is in the air. As the character lands, the claw is punched into the ground.
Transform Attack N/A N/A No transformation attack in this mode.
Transformed Moveset
Move Damage Type & Modifier[2] Stamina Effect
R1 Combo physical_atk.jpg0.98x
Beast Embrace: 1.00x, 1.00x, 1.00x, 1.05x, 1.10x
14 ~ 20 Please see the combo information from the regular moveset. The combo is the same here, with the exception of all attacks that move from left to right are done with the left hand claw, instead of the right hand alternating.
Quickstep R1 physical_atk.jpg1.08x 25  
Backstep R1 physical_atk.jpg0.93x
Beast Embrace: .95x+60
25 After a hop forward, the left hand claw is swept from left to right in a mostly horizontal swing.
Rolling R1 physical_atk.jpg0.88x 25 The hunter rises from the roll and delivers an uppercut with the right hand claw.
Dash physical_atk.jpg0.93x
Beast Embrace: 1.05x+60
20 (+run) The hunter swings the right claw from right to left at chest height while exiting the dash.
R2 Attack physical_atk.jpg1.38x
Beast Embrace: 1.20x, 1.30x, 1.40x
50 The left hand claw is brought back, raised overhead and brought down and across the body.
Charged physical_atk.jpg1.93x 70 The left hand claw is brought further back before being raised. As the charge is about to complete, the hand stretches its fingers. The attack is slammed into the ground.
Backstep R2 physical_atk.jpg1.18x
Beast Embrace: 1.20x
50 Both claws are brought outside the body and swept across to the front with a scissoring attack.
Dash R2 physical_atk.jpg1.13x
Beast Embrace: 1.25x+60
40 (+run) The right claw is swung upward in an uppercut much like the rolling R1.
L2 physical_atk.jpg1.23x 40 Like the backstep R2, both claws are brought out and then swept in. This animation is slightly different, making more of an "X" in front of the hunter. A second press of L2 will raise both claws overhead and then down and out behind the player. A third attack is possible where the claws are once again raised up and overhead (with a larger gap between the two hands than the previous attack). The claws are slammed into the ground rather than out and then behind the hunter.
Leap physical_atk.jpg1.43x
Beast Embrace: 1.40x+60
50 As the player lands, the claws start overhead then sweep down and out like the second L2 attack.
Transform Attack physical_atk.jpg1.28x
Beast Embrace: 1.25x
25 (+x) There is one attack animation. After completing the prior action, the claws are raised overhead similar to the second L2 attack. As the claws are brought down and out, the left hand claw dissipates and is accompanied by a small shriek as it does.

Trivia

  • When this weapon is equipped, your gloves will be replaced by two bone gauntlets. This can allow for the lost art of rapid glove changing if you switch your weapons really fast.
  • You can charge the beasthood meter on the first windows (Gilbert) of Central Yharnam
  • In the past, there was a rare glitch that allowed a player to obtain this weapon without finding it in the Chalice Dungeons.
    • It has since been patched, although it isn't quite known when it was successfully patched.

      Found the uncanny version in ailing loran before the first layer even starts! Not a lot of hard enemies and is pretty hard to miss, take the optional oath before the start of later 1, glyph is dkhb7jhm

        church connection?13 Aug 2016 11:33  

        In the item storage in the Hunter's Dream, it sorts weapons into Workshop (like Saw Cleaver), Church (like Kirkhammer), and Vileblood (like Chikage) weapons and the Beast Claw falls under Church. Possible connection between Izzy and the Healing Church?

          Buff accepted for this weapon ?05 Jul 2016 14:49  

          Is this the kind of weapon that can be buffed with a "magic" item available in the game, or is it impossible ? <br/>Because if it is... it can be very class to walk around with both arms in fire... or covered in lightning ! (* o * )

            How was this gif on this page made? The camera doesn't seem to stay on the center of the character as we walks and there is no hud.

            • A quick note on the location05 Jul 2016 14:49  

              It's actually in between the elevator from level one and the first lamp on level 2 in a treasure room that has one of the electric sideways head werewolves. You'll see a brown wooden door, it's through that.

                Beasthood bar05 Jul 2016 14:49  

                If I transform the weapon back to its one-hand form, does the beasthood bar instantly disappear, or simply stop increasing from attacks?

                  Viability05 Jul 2016 14:49  

                  It seems statisticaly weak in comparrison with other weapons. The only other low reach high att speed weapon, blade of mercy, has an S-scalling in skill, and an initial arcane damage with a B scalling. I think that this one needs to do extra bolt damage in transformation mode, because of the fact that you turn your hand into a darkbeast claw. And maybe even then a buff to the arcane scalling, to C or whatever. <br/> <br/>I have not personally tried this weapon cause it looks statistically weaker then other weapons. Maybe im wrong ;).

                    damage bonus and tips05 Jul 2016 14:49  

                    With my beasthood at 546 and my beasthood bar filled I received a damage bonus (on physical attacks only) of 70% for over 40 seconds. Shortly after that it drops to a 60% bonus and so on. I find the L2 fills my bar much better than R2 but it may be the enemies I'm testing it out on. Also attacking an enemy while in its dying animation yields beasthood bar progress. <br/>I stack my kirkhammer with physical attack blood gems then switch to it after filling my beasthood bar with my claws. After I cast an arcane buff on my kirkhammer I can R2 charge the hammer for 1400+ damage. I haven't seen much talk about the damage bonus from beasthood so I thought I'd put my 2 cents in.

                              Im curious as to if this is like the chikage where switchinfg to blood mode scales off blood and not anything else, if so, if you switch to dual claws is it arcane only or still just physical? So i can decide if i wanna 50 str and 25 arc or vise versa
