Weapons in Bloodborne are a very strategic and important choice for the player. Players must choose weapons that suit their style of play and preference. A player's character will be able to dedicate themselves to mastering one weapon, with its rich movesets that affect output damages per move and the Blood Gem Imprints that determine its extra bonuses.

You may equip two weapons in each hand and rotate between them. Trick Weapons will primarily be held in the right hand and Firearms will be held in the left. Trick Weapons have a regular and transformed mode which varies greatly depending on the weapon. Firearms serve different roles. Some fire high damaging single-target shells and others fire a spread of bullets that stun enemies in the area.

Weapon upgrades are done at the Workshop in the Hunter's Dream. You will need Blood Gems. You play the role of the Blacksmith to repair and fortify weapons, instead of an NPC blacksmith character.

Notes:

  • See Weapon Moveset Damage Comparison for damage numbers of all weapons in each moveset!
  • See Weapons Gallery for Gifs of all weapons!
  • Mobile Users: You will not see location as it stretches the table and makes it less usable. Please see each page for location information.

Weapons

 

Trick Weapons in Bloodborne are weapons wielded in the right hand and employed in beast hunting. These weapons can be transformed and have different attacks in their transformed mode. There are 3 versions of each type of Trick Weapon: Normal, Uncanny and Lost. The only known difference being the location in which they are found and the Gem Imprints they have on them.

Note about Uncanny and Lost versions: The locations listed only provide a CHANCE for that version to drop, it does not produce one 100% of the time. However, the Chalices listed are in fact the ONLY locations known for finding them.

Rally = the amount of HP regained on an R1 attack immediately after taking damage

        Perhaps stupid question: just started playing the game this week.
        What is the difference between the first and second tier for weapons?
        E.g. the saw cleaver doesn't seem to appear when equipped as the first tier. It is there when I equip it in the second tier.
        What's the point of having two weapon tiers? Is this necessary for some weapons that I haven't encountered yet?

          I have played through Bloodborne countless times and I'm on new game+3 or 4 at the moment but can't seem to get the achievement for getting all hunter weapons I don't understand because I have all 26 and every left hand weapon as well

                        Hey just letting you know that you can find the rifle spear in the world, its near where you get attacked by the one npc near where you fight Gyula, if you didn't kill him yet he can still shoot at you during the fight, its also near the Charred hunter set.

                          Weird, almost all the melee weapons are D or E scaling with a few C, do they get better scaling as they get upgraded? My ax is 5+ but the scaling isn't different, its just weird they put scaling on weapons but it hardly matters..
