Fist of Gratia is a left-hand Weapon in Bloodborne. It was added to the game with The Old Hunters DLC.


" A chunk of iron fitted with finger holes

The hulking hunter woman Simple Gratia, ever hopeless when handling hunter firearms, preferred to knock the lights out of beasts with this hunk of iron, which incidentally caused heavy stagger.

Gratia was a fearsome hunter, and to onlookers, her unrelenting pummelling appeared oddly heroic. No wonder this weapon later assumed her name."




Fist of Gratia Information

  • This is a left hand weapon and has no transformation.
  • Requires 16 Blood Stone Shards, 16 Twin Blood Shards, 16 Chunks and 1 Blood Rock
    and ?? Blood Echoes to fully upgrade.
  • The L2 attack is a gut punch, with significant hit stun.
  • Does not have charge attack, unlike unarmed fists.
  • Effective against most non-giant enemies.
  • Doesn't use Blood Gem imprints.
  • Oddly enough, it requires a certain amount of Bloodtinge to wield, even though it makes no use of Blood damage. Even so, its prerequisite level for Bloodtinge is so low that any starting class can meet the requirement.

Normal




Player Notes

  • Fast animation on its attack and high stagger make this great as an opener for both slow and fast weapons, more so on durable large targets a lighter weapon may not stun.
  • Can be used to finish a light weapon combo, stunning the target to allow for an easy dodge.
  • Unlike unarmed fist, the Fist of Gratia does not have charge attack, rendering it unable to backstab enemies.
  • Doesn't chain attacks well.
  • Consumes a large amount of stamina per punch.
  • Doesn't use quicksilver bullets, great as a back up for strength bloodtinge builds that use the cannon or gattling gun when low on ammo.

    • Why would anyone use that?05 Jul 2016 08:35  

      Or is it simply a novelty? I'm failing to see which right hand weapon would make it useful in any way. It doesn't consume any less endurance than right hand weapons...does it have any advantage over using your right hand weapon?<br /><br/><br /><br/>Only thing I can imagine is if you have a pure elemental or arcane weapon in right hand and want to use physical dmg, but I don't see in which scenario it would be any good if your character is mainly arcane...

      • Could be classed as cheating but I dont care05 Jul 2016 08:35  

        Im playing through with an Unarmed character and this is the FIST of Gratia so Im gonna let it slide and use this. At the end of the day its a brick...

        • This and the Stake Driver05 Jul 2016 08:35  

          Had a lot of fun this weapon combo back in Cathedral Ward (NG+) <br/> <br/>Just prime the Stake Driver and open up the Fist and punch away. <br/> <br/>The first makes a good combo ender too

          • Fun with Fisting05 Jul 2016 08:35  

            Fist of Gratia in off hand combined with Kos Parasite without Milkweed equipped gives you a pretty good way to fist fight. Go in with right handed fisting comboes and then finish with a Fist of Gratia punch to stun for a safe dodge away. You can also start with a Fist of Gratia hit to knock the enemy out of their attack and get some hits in. It feels like bloodborne boxing. I tried this against some werewolves and felt it was pretty enjoyable. Obviously hard to deal with multiple enemies but the Fist does a good job of hitting multiple enemies to stun and free you up. I definitely expect people to try and PvP with this and an Arcane build to focus on fast combos and some hunter tools thrown in.

            • Steelheart Ellie?05 Jul 2016 08:35  

              The DS2 Co-op phantom Steelheart Ellie bears quite the resemblance to Gratia (from what I can see), and uses Cestus. This is likely a reference to her.

              • Uses for Fist of Gratia05 Jul 2016 08:35  

                This weapon is particularly good against the giant enemies you fight in the DLC, the ones that after a while start to channel a buff that makes their attacks gain a magic AOE splash damage. You pummel then two-three times and they stop casting. So far, though, I'd rather have a firearm in my secondary slot.
