The Whirligig Saw is a Trick Weapon in Bloodborne, introduced with The Old Hunters DLC. There are 3 versions of this weapon: Normal, Uncanny and Lost. The only known differences being the Gem Imprints and the locations in which they are found.

" A trick weapon crafted by the workshop heretics, the Powder Kegs, and weapon of choice of the Old Hunter Valtr, the Beast Eater.

This weapon pummels beasts in its mace form, but its true strength lies in its attached mechanical saws.

These discs, lined with serrated teeth,spin rapidly, thrashing the flesh of beasts into fine shreds."



Whirligig Saw Information




Location

Player Notes

  • This weapon is classed as serrated in its transformed mode.
  • Buzzsaw form seems capable of scoring multiple hits. In PvP, this makes the weapon ideal for punishing dodge-spammers.
    • It also is a good choice for Poison gems due to easily scoring multi-hits with many of its attacks, including its L2.
  • Press and hold L2 during transformed mode to perform continuous, multiple buzzsaw hits at the cost of stamina being consumed over time. This is capable of stun-locking most enemies for as long as the buzzsaw continues and is great for boss fights, as it allows cooperators to join in the attack and direct the foe's attention away from the person wielding the buzzsaw so they may safely retreat after running out of stamina.
  • When using the L2 attack in transformed mode, after the initial L2 thrust, the constant saw attack can be cancelled at any time. Meaning the user can hold the saw in place and maximize damage output all the while given the opportunity to dodge at the last second before the enemy can land a strike assuming they can poise through the Whirligig's attack.
  • A fully charged R2 will rear the weapon back and slam it on the ground, all the while accelerating the buzzsaw. The main damage source will come from the ground slam itself, meaning that you can miss the target and only do minor damage while simply sawing the ground near them. Make sure that the buzzsaw itself connects fully through the entire attack duration for maximum damage.

Trivia

  • If you use the L2 buzzsaw attack against Orphan of Kos and hold it in place, it attempts to make an immediate counterattack for each time it gets hit by the whirring blades, only to get interrupted by the next hit. It shrieks every time it attacks, so as a result, it lets loose dozens of overlapping shriek sound effects for as long as you hold it in place.
  • A whirligig is defined as a toy that is constantly spinning, such as a top or pinwheel, or as something regarded as hectic and constantly changing.
  • Similar to most Powder Keg weapons sharing homage to Armored Core weapons, the Whirligig Saw is based on the Grind Blade.
