Huntsmen in Bloodborne are human enemies hunting threats to Yharnam. Due to the infestation of the scourge, this is what the mob that has risen for the beast hunt have become. The fever-like urge to hunt remains, but they themselves have already been infested with the scourge of the beast. Unaware of this fact, they continue to search for prey to hunt and kill. Perhaps through their murky eyes, humans are seen as the true beasts.

Hunter Mob Information


This is possibly the most common mob you will encounter in the game, and they are greatly varied. The variations all share some likeness, but require attention in terms of which strategy to adopt. The huntsmen are mostly low to mid-level enemies; in large groups they can still be challenging, however, particularly the molotov and rifle variants.

Strategy

 

  • The shield-bearing variant will be able to block one or two hits before becoming staggered and exposed.
  • It is important to consider one's distance between oneself and the rifle variant: the closer the shooter, the more damage he inflicts.
  • Pitchfork variants have long and deceiving range, it is recommended to sidestep when dodging their swing

 

Huntsman Information



These enemies come in several variations and can be found in many of the different locations in Bloodborne.

      ive sat and listened to one of the beast cutter enemies trying to hit some beasts on a high ledge... all I've heard them say is : "You Rotten Beast!" or "Cursed beast!"<br/><br/>the Boom Hammer variant only seems to say : "Blood NOW!"<br/><br/>the Beasthunter Saif only variant says : "More blood!"<br/><br/>this is all I've caught from both invading other players and observing their fights with the old hunters (I'm an honorable invader okay?)

        So, I thought the fact they scream at you is really neat so I thought I'd try to get as many of their lines as I can. Contribution and editing (should I mess up) is of course welcome.

          I'll admit now, I'm the guy who kept removing that part and forgetting to comment, but it keeps getting put back as if it's a vital part of the page. So please explain to me why it's so important and I'll leave it alone, okay? Because right now the connection to Bloodborne is so tenuous that it just looks like someone's trying to turn this into a makeshift Brom Art Appreciation Society page. I'm not trying to start trouble, I just want to know why.

            When I was watching a video on Youtube for the first leg of the DLC, it sounded to me like the Beast Cutter-wielding hunters that attack you on the stairs outside the Nightmare Oedon Chapel were saying, "You f***ing beast!" I replayed that part half a dozen times b/c I wasn't sure, but they're definitely saying, "You something-that-starts-with-F beast!" Can anyone confirm/disprove? Maybe they're saying "foul" instead?
