- When in hunter of hunters covenant you can be summoned as a hostile without the sinister bell to a host who is a ''blood-addled hunter''. (May be triggered when joining a hunter in the Hunter of Hunters covenant. These hostile triggers appear to be random when both players are in this covenant.)
- Depending on your Beasthood you can be marked as "blood-addled hunter" for Hunter of Hunters.
- When getting summoned as Hunter of Hunters into someone's world through a Beckoning Bell you're NOT adversary NEITHER co-operator. It means that both Co-operators and adversaries are hostile towards you.
The Hunter of Hunters is a covenant devoted to executing Hunters who have gone mad with bloodlust. Like the Executioners, the Hunters are enemies of the Vilebloods and will be hostile to them when summoned into their worlds by the Beckoning Bell, although for different reasons; the Hunters slay the Vilebloods for betraying the Hunter's oath and killing others for Blood, while the Executioners hunt them to punish what they perceive as a blasphemous existence.
The description of both the Crowfeather Set and the Crow Hunter Badge suggest that the Hunter of Hunters originate from foreign lands; their feathered mantles suggest sky burial traditions of their native homeland, in opposition to what the view as "blasphemous" services performed by Yharnam undertakers. The Badge mentions that the Hunters are typically outsiders from the hinterlands - that is, remote countryside far from civilization or out of the scope of known geography, traversed mostly by travelers. Note that this is the only mention of the hinterlands in the game.
It is unclear whether the Hunters are a faction consisting of multiple members at a time; or if there is only ever one Hunter of Hunters in every world, a badge and responsibility that's passed from generation to generation, master to disciple, as Eileen passes onto you.
