The Beast Cutter is a Trick Weapon in Bloodborne. It was introduced in The Old Hunters Expansion and appears to be the Strength equivalent of the Threaded Cane. 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 used by Old Hunters.

This thick iron cleaver slices through the toughest of beast hides, and when transformed the blade splits into sections, allowing one to lash it in the fashion of a heavy whip.

This crude weapon relies on brute force and is regrettably inelegant, suggesting that the hunts of the earliest hunters made for horrific affairs, painted in sanguine black and reds."




Beast Cutter Information





Location


Normal

  • Walking down the stairs from the Nightmare Cathedral stick to the right and aim for the higher areas. The weapon will be here on the small roofs close to the square with the statues and gravestones.


Uncanny Beast Cutter

  • If you have the normal version: Create Glyph 8i29rqz3 (Pthumeru Labyrinth) and buy from Bath Messengers up a ladder from the main room for 20,000 Blood Echoes.


Lost Beast Cutter

  • If you have the normal version: Create Glyph 8i29rqz3 (Pthumeru Labyrinth) and buy from Bath Messengers up a ladder from the main room for 20,000 Blood Echoes.



Player Notes

  • A good weapon choice for dealing with large groups of enemies due to its long range, great stagger, and wide swing arc.
  • Acts as a heavy weapon, granting easy staggers and consuming large portions of stamina per swing.
  • This weapon's moveset in both forms consists entirely of Blunt attacks. Using gems that increase Blunt damage is recommended.
  • The weapon's weakest trait is a very low rally potential.
  • Is a serrated weapon, boosting damage against various beasts.
  • The transformation attack from base form to whip form is an overhead slam with medium range. Changing back to cleaver form makes the player do a downward thrust directly in front of them.
  • The whip swings low when using light attacks, good for clearing low lying enemies.
  • The heavy combo attacks consist of far-reaching overhead slams. The second attack of the R2 combo has incredible range, and hits hard enough to flatten most human-sized enemies.
  • When transformed, the dodging light attack (dodge + R1) will not be a whip move, like the rest of its attacks, but rather a quick diagonal slash from your right foot to left shoulder.
  • In whip mode, has the highest amount of windup and recovery frames of any weapon, however, also has the most damage frames.

Player Preferences


An excellent compliment to the Saw Cleaver or Saw Spear, because both weapons are faster but with shorter range compared to Beast Cutter. While they do have decent range on their tricked forms, they can't compare to Beast Cutter's. Both, Saw Cleaver/Saw Spear and Beast Cutter have low stat requirements as well as average-to-low scaling, making them ideal for low-level builds. Also, both of them allow you to use left hand weapon, even in tricked form. The Saw weapons are best against smaller but faster foes (and single targets like Hunters), while the Beast Cutter is best against groups of foes, especially if they are slow.
This weapon is also an ideal compliment to the Beast Claw. While the Beast Claw (transformed) does have an attack for groups, it is best against single targets. The Beast Cutter is the opposite.
It's actually not a bad compliment to Logarius' Wheel, either. While both are slow, they both have great stagger and hyper armor in their attacks (transformed for Beast Cutter). The Wheel handles single targets, and Beast Cutter can handle groups (from a longer range as well).

Trivia

  • Reminds many of the Zanpakutō Zabimaru, a fictional segmented sword that can function as a whip. It is an iconic weapon from the Bleach anime.
  • The untransformed form of the weapon is a cleaver-like serrated club, and it really looks like the samoan war club "Nifo Oti".
