Bloodletter (Japanese: 瀉血の槌 Phlebotomy Hammer) is a Trick Weapon in Bloodborne. It is wielded by Brador and is part of The Old Hunters DLC. There are 3 versions of this weapon: Normal, Uncanny and Lost. The only known differences being the Gem Imprints and the locations in which they are found.


"The demented hunter weapon brandished by Brador, the Healing Church assassin.
The Bloodletter assumes its true and terrifying form after it draws upon blood from the inner reaches of one's body and soul.
This is the only effective means of expelling tainted blood, or so Brador, isolated in his cell, continued to believe."

Bloodletter Information

  • Transforms from a short one-handed mace to a large two-handed bloody morning star at a price of some health.
  • Requires 16 Blood Stone Shards, 16 Twin Blood Shards, 16 Chunks and 1 Blood Rock and 4240 Blood Echoes to fully upgrade.
  • To perform a Leap Attack, tap forward on the Left Stick as you press R2
  • To perform a Transformation Attack, press L1 while performing another attack.

 

Location

 

Normal

  • You MUST HAVE the underground cell inner chamber key which is at the lighthouse hut lamp location. Talk to a dying man on the floor in this location.
    Go to the Underground Corpse Pile Lamp and once there, go up the stairs and at the top, turn right and on your left you'll pass a door the 2nd door, you go down and use that key to kill Brador. Other methods need testing.

 

Uncanny Bloodletter

  • If you have the normal version: Create Glyph 8i29rqz3 (Pthumeru Labyrinth) and buy from Bath Messengers up a ladder from the main room for 80,000 Blood Echoes

Lost Bloodletter

  • If you have the normal version: Create Glyph 8i29rqz3 (Pthumeru Labyrinth) and buy from Bath Messengers up a ladder from the main room for 80,000 Blood Echoes

 

Player Notes

  • Similarly to the Chikage, the Bloodletter uses the wielder's own blood to achieve its true form. But unlike the Chikage, which drains health over time, the Bloodletter takes a large chunk of health (20%) immediately with no health drain. You can wield the transformed form in full health by committing suicide via transformation.
    • The Frenzy effect produced by this weapon appears to only take 50% of the wielder's health, rather than the standard ~70%.
    • It is recommended to obtain the Cosmic Eye Watcher Badge from Upper Cathedral Ward, as this item will unlock Sedatives for purchase from the Bath Messengers in the Hunter's Dream, thus giving the player easy access to Frenzy counter-measures.
  • Can be transformed while running.
  • Using the transformation attack on an enemy allows you to regain most of your health instantly (and all health in a cursed dungeon)
  • Has unique death animation during transformation if one's health is too low.
  • Much like the Chikage, the weapon's damage switches from Physical to Blood upon transformation. This means that without an investment in Bloodtinge, This weapon's transformation is useless.
  • The L2 attack will not trigger Frenzy if the player has a Frenzy resistance of 180 or higher.
  • The L2 attack is probably the most interesting aspect of the Bloodletter as it gives you a powerful explosion that inflicts Frenzy to use every 30 seconds or so. Does require a commitment to frenzy resistant attire and keeping your insight low.
  • R2 allows you to use the Bloodletter as a spear and the charged form creates a small blood explosion at the tip.
  • Transformed form knocks down dogs and spiders with any attack, not necessarily useful as they're invulnerable while knocked down.
  • The transformed roll attack is an especially useful thrust with stunning power. Very good against Phtumerian Descendant/Elder
