Church Pick is a trick weapon in Bloodborne. It was added with 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.


" One of the old trick weapons of the Healing Church, a hunting weapon formed from one of the giant picks that appear in old beast tales.

The Church Pick initially serves as a large sword, but when transformed functions as an extended war pick. In spite of its origins, it is a highly practical weapon."

Church Pick Information

  • This weapon counts as Righteous & Serrated
  • Transforms from a short spear to a war pick.


Location

 

Normal

  • The Hunter's Nightmare: Dropped by a hunter wearing Yahar'Gul set (presumably, this is the summonable Old Hunter Defector Antal) in one of the cells that you open with the Underground Cell Key from the Research Hall. To make this battle simple, attack him through the door with a strong R2 attack, then leave the room. He will lose sight of you and his AI will return to a standstill behind the door. Rinse and repeat until dead.

 

Uncanny Church Pick

  • If you have the normal version: Create Glyph 8i29rqz3 (Pthumeru Labyrinth) and buy from Bath Messengers up a ladder from the main room for 16,000 Blood Echoes.

 

Lost Church Pick

  • If you have the normal version: Create Glyph 8i29rqz3 (Pthumeru Labyrinth) and buy from Bath Messengers up a ladder from the main room for 16,000 Blood Echoes.


Player Notes

  • The transformed L2 attack does very little damage, but has a large stagger effect. This can be used to combo enemies which normally cannot be stunlocked by R1 attacks. (The snake-headed men in Forbidden Woods are an example)
  • When transformed, all attacks deal Thrusting dmg. This makes it very effective against enemies weak to thrusts (brain sucker, celestial mob) and allows the setting of powerful "adept" blood gems.
  • The transformed R2 attack (uncharged) has very good range.
  • With strength and skill both at level 50, a fully upgraded Church Pick has an ATK of 340.

Trivia

  • The Church Pick And The Hunter's Axe both have similar appearance. When transformed, both are wielded as a polearm and have the same de-transformation attack. The only difference apart from the Church Pick having a slightly more complicated mechanism is that the Hunter's Axe is a strength-based weapon.
  • A few of its attacks in the transformed mode are very similar to that of the Burial Blade.

      Is the trasformd full charged R2 still considered thrust, like I see what it says above in the player notes but it also seems as if it has blunt potential

      • Head Pick29 Aug 2016 15:38  

        This weapon pick form (as opposed to what I call stake form) works Godly to target boss heads for critical damage and riposting them. Ebrietas especially, been wrecking her all day with this thing, add Bolt.

        • Dash Attack05 Jul 2016 08:50  

          The first form dashing R1 seems to sometimes curve around the left side of other hunters that are directly in front of you. This is a minor PVP issue that has lost me a few fights. I personally love this weapon but this is something to keep in mind for people using it.

          • Any way to meet him again?05 Jul 2016 08:50  

            I didn't kill him the first time I opened the door but died instead. Now he is gone and doesn't re-spawn anymore. Has anyone found him outside his cell or is there only one chance to kill him?

            • Church Pick or Burial Blade ?05 Jul 2016 08:50  

              Damage wise Burial Blade win , but Church pick are much easier to master just keep switching between short and long version while burial blade short version still swing slow it does make up for burial blade high rally though.

              • Transformed L205 Jul 2016 08:50  

                Does anyone know if the L2 does something special ( like the Whirligig Saw ) / is a combo ? The damage is pretty lame and its not that quick.

                  • I didn't get the weapon from him05 Jul 2016 08:50  

                    I killed him, got his armor set but there is no weapon, i hope my game isn't glitched or something but i got nothing out of it besides the armor. is there any other way to get the weapon? cause i really don't wanna restart this character since i was aiming to have every weapon before new game+ for testing and such but it would seem that my game has glitched again and shafted me out of yet another weapon i wanted to try (the first time it happened i missed all of eileens dialougue and then realized later she gave the mercy blades but then read somewhere that after rom she will be at the grand cathedral and be hostile so you can still get the weapons. killed rom went to grand cathedral no eileen, restarted the entire game however it wasn't nearly as bad as with this character whom i have spent way longer trying to complete everything v.v)

                    • Amazing05 Jul 2016 08:50  

                      One of my favorite weapons in the entire game but the Rakuyo and the Bloodletter do trump over the weapon. I like the Whirligig Saw but I haven't used it a lot because I'm leveling my bloodtinge

                      • Awesome weapon05 Jul 2016 08:50  

                        I just made a character to use the pick and man is it fun. I really like the move set. Especially the the one handed charged r2 and the follow up to the transformed charged attack.

                          • Awesome weapon05 Jul 2016 08:50  

                            I've just been playing a Skill/Bloodtinge build around 160 lvl and found this weapon a hell of a lot of fun in PvP, it has awesome range on non tricked and tricked attacks which a lot of opponents misjudge and the transform L1 is super quick to make it into a Scythe. The transform attack from Scythe to non tricked weapon also confuses people too and with a 1.42x multiplier can be pretty devastating. I either use this or Beasthunter Saif for PvP.

                            • Follow up after charged R205 Jul 2016 08:50  

                              I know that seasoned players know about the follow up attacks on weapons but if you're new to the game There are weapons that do a unique attack after a charged R2. Charge R2 and right after that press R2 again, in this weapons transformed mode it does an awesome attack that sends almost every enemy flying. Kirkhammer has one too with incredible damage

                              • The underrated pick05 Jul 2016 08:50  

                                The pick has become my favourite weapon because of its great balance. States wise it is not overwhelming but to the experience player it's befits are clear. It staggers like crazy on both modes. Stops all but the biggest in its tracks. Good reach. Ok stamina drain. I can get 45 hits on astral lady in corner? She could do nothing. Pick mode has great reach, speed and range r1 pick spam also staggers. Great move set for norm and pick. <br/>I do more dps with this wep than my beefed up Ludwig. Amazing wep

                                • Hunter axe and church pick comparisons05 Jul 2016 08:50  

                                  It looks like both axe and pick are similar in functionality with the axe being strength based and the pick being skill based
