Flamesprayer is a Firearm in Bloodborne; it's one of two arcane-based "sprayer" firearms.


" A special weapon used by certain members of the Healing Church.
Spits searing flames by using blood-imbued Quicksilver Bullets as a special medium.
Not the most efficient weapon by any stretch, but sometimes a sea of flame is just what the doctor ordered.
Besides, the beasts of Yharnam can always use a good cleansing."




Flamesprayer Information

  • This hunter firearm is primarily for arcane builds due to its high scaling.
  • You can hold L2 down to continuously fire; it consumes one Quicksilver Bullet every 1.4 seconds.
  • The Flamesprayer can be upgraded, but it cannot be fortified with blood gems.



Location

  • Gilbert will grant you this firearm as a gift after you defeat Father Gascoigne (you actually have to trigger the cathedral ward intro cut scene first) and zone in some way (use a lamp to teleport, exit your game, die, etc.). If you have already defeated Vicar Amelia before you attempt to receive it, he will no longer offer it, forcing you to buy it from the Messenger shop instead.
  • It becomes available for purchase for 8000 Blood Echoes from the Bath Messenger after obtaining the Radiant Sword Hunter Badge.



Player Notes

  • The Flamesprayer operates as a powerful anti-mob firearm for arcane users.
    • This hunter arcane firearm can be found very early. As such, it's considered a lifesaver for "pure arcane" builds that tend to struggle in the early stages of the game.
    • It cannot stagger opponents, but the damage output is potentially enough to offset this problem.
    • It's also very useful in tight corridors/rooms since it becomes more difficult for opponents to dodge the flames.
    • Stamina is not consumed while this firearm is being used. This can be useful for damaging opponents after you have expended all of your current stamina.
    • Keep in mind there is a small delay between the timing of the Flamesprayer's activation and when it actually starts shooting flames. Plan accordingly when dealing with a quick opponent.
    • You can walk freely while using this firearm. However, beware that you also move slower while it's being fired.
  • This hunter firearm is very useful against opponents vulnerable to fire damage.
  • Bone Marrow Ash can be used to boost this firearm's damage output. As long as you hold down L2, it applies the same BMA activated to every tick of damage.
  • You can also use an Oil Urn to boost this firearm's damage output.
    • In PVP, if you manage to douse an opponent with oil, they might become cautious when approaching you if they know you have access to a Flamesprayer (or some sort of fire-type weapon).
    • This gives you a major tactical advantage, giving you breathing room and/or pinning down opponents.
    • Beware that opponents may use long range weapons to safely attack you while they are still coated with oil.
  • A weapon that operates in a similar manner to the Flamesprayer (but instead utilizes arcane damage) is the Rosmarinus.

Trivia

  • The Flamesprayer is similar to a real life weapon called a flamethrower.
    • The design of the Flamesprayer seems like a modified portable version. It does have two tanks that seem to hold flammable liquids and pressurized gas necessary to operate it.
    • For exactly what purpose Quicksilver Bullets are used for this firearm isn't exactly clear, other than it serves as a special medium of some sort.
    • Considering that regular fire is already lethal to beasts, it's possible that the Church used Quicksilver Bullets for a religious purpose (in this case, "cleansing").
  • Used by Church Doctor, Wheelchair Mob and Yahar'Gul Hunter.
  • Since this item is given as a gift from Gilbert, who later turns into an Old Yharnam Beast, it can be assumed that the Flamesprayer was widely used as a means to burn Old Yharnam down into ashes when the beast infestation took place.




    • Acquiring05 Jul 2016 08:49

      I've killed at least three of the first bosses and reached further then the cathedral ward area and he still refuses to give it to me, he just coughs with blank text whenever i try to talk to him.

      • Damage05 Jul 2016 08:49

        Damage seems to ramp up per tick the longer you hold a target in the flame. Multiplier seems to linger/gradually diminish, so if you hold someone in the flame for a few seconds, stop to dodge, then immediately start lighting them up again, you will have a higher starting multiplier. Not sure if this is how it works, but the numbers I was getting when I burned some folks were going up by larger margins the longer I held down the trigger.

        • if you upgrade it it's quite versitle05 Jul 2016 08:48

          but it sucks against big enemies, almost no poise crush and damage that consumes bullets at a rapid rate, hell even an upgraded torch can be damage with high arcane

          • Ammo05 Jul 2016 08:48

            The only reason why a flamethrower uses bullet is because bullet is treated as ammo. As there are no gas tank etc in the game, so as a game mechanic, bullets are used instead. No other reason for this.

            • Changes 2.005 Jul 2016 08:48

              Nothing special this time around, just some basic cleaning.<br /><br/><br /><br/>However I did find a useful guide regarding arcane builds. The link is on the part mentioning &quot;pure arcane&quot; builds, and since the flamesprayer is one of the first arcane weapons you come across, I figure it'll be useful for people looking to try their hands at an arcane build.

              • Recieved AFTER unlocking Cathedral Ward05 Jul 2016 08:48

                Just tested this. Talked to him after killing Papa G, didn't give me it. Went to the first Cathedral Ward lantern, went back and talked to him and he gave it to me.

                • Some changes05 Jul 2016 08:48

                  Did some cleaning up on this page. This weapon is incredibly useful in chalice dungeons where there's a considerable amount of tight corridors/rooms to fight in.<br /><br/>Either way, as the old saying goes, &quot;Kill it with Fire!&quot;

                  • Glitched?05 Jul 2016 08:48

                    I killed Gascoigne already and came back to the guy who gives it to you after talking with him, and he refuses to give me the item. He keeps talking about these "aqueducts." Can someone help? I really want the flamesprayer....

                    • Another way to lose Gilbert's flamesprayer05 Jul 2016 08:48

                      It appears that you can lose the chance to Gilbert's Flamesprayer if you attack his window after talking to him the first time. I can't get him to say anything at this point, going to his window simply gives "No Response."
