Evelyn is a Firearm in Bloodborne; it's one of three pistol firearms in the game.

" Special pistol used by Cainhurst knights.

The Evelyn uses Quicksilver Bullets, just as any workshop firearm, but the Cainhurst variant relies more on bloodtinge.

Lovingly named after a woman and graced with an intricate design, Evelyns were adored by Cainhurst knights."

Evelyn Information

  • Requires 16 Bloodstone Shards, 16 Twin Bloodstone Shards, 16 Bloodstone Chunks, 1 Blood Rock and6720Blood Echoes to fully upgrade.
  • The Evelyn has the highest potential Bloodtinge scaling amongst all pistols in Bloodborne.
    • At 20 Bloodtinge and below, the Hunter Pistol deals more damage. At 21, both firearms are equal, and at 22+ the Evelyn deals superior damage.
    • However, the Repeating Pistol deals more damage at the cost of using two Quicksilver Bullets instead of one.


Player Notes

  • The Evelyn is a strong choice as a firearm for high bloodtinge builds (21+) due to the high scaling it receives with the stat.
  • It has a unique pattern for firing compared to the other two pistols that very slightly affects the area shot.
  • When comparing the Evelyn to the Repeating Pistol for a high bloodtinge build, it's important to remember the amount of Quicksilver bullets both guns use.
  • Contrary to popular belief, the Evelyn doesn't shoot any faster than the other two pistols despite the unique firing animation.

    • All pistols fire at the same speed05 Jul 2016 08:48  

      This used to say it was rthe fastest pistol, but (other than the Reiterpallasch) i did a side by side test in Sony Vegas and they all fire at the same rate.

      • Evelyn or Repeating Pistol05 Jul 2016 08:48  

        I have been planning to make a gunmen build with bloodtinge hard capped. Which do you think is better to use, this one or the repeating pistol?

        • Evelyn Location05 Jul 2016 08:48  

          As I couldn't find it on the wiki and went hunting for it myself, I found it. Evelyn's chest is located next to the shortcut ladder towards end of the map, barricaded behind two desks and a staircase. In order to gain access to this area, one must use the small staircase to the right (when facing the chest) and jump across to the other side. Once there with Evelyn in hand, head straight up the staircase on the left side to get out of the barricade.

          • Not shooting straight05 Jul 2016 08:48  

            Anyone else find the animation causes it not to shoot straight especially on an angle? I find the HP and RP seem to shoot a lot more straighter and I think it's because of the animation or it could be just me.

            • Bloodborne Shikage/Evelyn Build - PVP05 Jul 2016 08:48  

              I made a video using my character with Chikage/Evelyn build, feel free to ask me anything :) <br/> <br/>

              • Changes05 Jul 2016 08:48  

                Did some cleaning up on the page, and I'm hoping I got the numbers right. Personally I think this firearm is cool, but one thing I regret is that I couldn't find any information on the &quot;twist draw&quot; that I was talking about earlier. Might have to hit up a bookstore regarding famous gun duels if I ever want to verify this (look down on the comments section to figure out what I'm talking about).

                • Do not use in PvE.05 Jul 2016 08:48  

                  This weapon is completely useless in PvE, it misses every single target less than a mile away from you. If you got Evelyn for anything other than PvP, you wasted your time.

                  • Not shooting straight CONFIRMED05 Jul 2016 08:48  

                    I compared Hunter Pistol vs Evelyn: trajectory, angle from which it is fired and disrance from which the bullet "starts" to fly. There is a significant difference: <br/>I compared by standing in Hunter's Dream looking at the 'ash lake trees' and shooting at them (not moving the camera and switching guns): <br/>1. Eve shoots from the left diagonally in avery slight arc. <br/>while HP fires totally straight and centered. While I 'hit' the tree sith HP, Eve missed it by a few pixels. <br/>2 +3 Eve misses quite often at point blank range, that's its biggest disadantage compared to HP, making it less reliable at parries than the HP: <br/>HP shoots from the waist directly into the center, making even 0 ft. Shots a 100% hit. <br/>Evelyn is LONGER so the bullet may start flying after the target and bypass it entirely. Futher Eve tends to miss at close range, especially vs thin slender enemies (slender zombie in Chalice) since it fires in an arc from the left - passing beyond. While HP fires directly in the stomach of foes. <br/> <br/>I still use Eve but I can confirm it miss more often due to arc, angle and trajectory.

                    • Twist Draw05 Jul 2016 08:48  

                      Here's a fun tidbit that I didn't want to include in the trivia because I'm still trying to verify some concepts: the Evelyn's firing is based on a real life duelist shot called a &quot;twist draw.&quot; Back in the day, when 1v1 gun duels were common, there were many different techniques that were created to more quickly put the opponent down. It was discovered that, when a gun was holstered in a certain angle and quickly whipped out (by literately just twisting your wrist with the gun rather than bringing it out full weaver/isosceles), you could shave a second or two off in regards to shooting an opponent. The catch was that it came at the sacrfice of accuracy and precision, so you had to train very hard in order to make this form of quickdraw work out for you.<br /><br/><br /><br/>The Evelyn looks like it draws inspiration from this particular quickdraw, although it wouldn't have been done with such a long barrel, but then again you wouldn't consistently hit the same exact spot on a wall standing still 20 shots in a row, so I suppose some creative liberties can be taken here.<br /><br/><br /><br/>If you guys are interested, look up a manga called &quot;Peace Maker.&quot; There's alot of fiction involved, but there are some quickdraw techniques that are shown in the manga that reflect real life stances somewhat well.

                      • Evelyn Blood Echo Requirements05 Jul 2016 08:48  

                        Hey guys, i noticed that in the evelyn information there wasn't a number for the required echos needed to get the evelyn to +10. <br/>I just recently needed to upgrade one to max level so ill post the requirements here since I dont know how to add stuff to the wiki. <br/>+1 380 <br/>+2 440 <br/>+3 520 <br/>+4 580 <br/>+5 640 <br/>+6 700 <br/>+7 760 <br/>+8 840 <br/>+9 900 <br/>+10 960 <br/> <br/>That's a total of 6720 blood echoes required to get it to max level.
