Blood is a elemental damage Status Effect type in Bloodborne.
Sources of Blood Damage
Blood damage is particularly effective against Nightmare Apostles and all dog enemies, as it knocks them off their feet, providing much needed respite from their fast and erratic attacks.
- Blood damage as well as Fire damage causes explosive jars to explode, dealing great damage to those nearby. Clever use can turn these hazards into traps for your own use. Be wary of these jars if you're using the transformed mode of the Chikage or Bloodletter, as melee attacks will still cause them to explode.
