Bloodtinge is a stat in Bloodborne. The damage of most firearms scale with the Bloodtinge stat, as well as the Chikage. For builds centered around Bloodtinge, see Builds.

  • Bloodtinge softcaps at 25, hardcap is 50
  • The only thing known about Bloodtinge thus far is that Firearms deal Blood damage (possibly also related to Blood Bullets), and the damage modifier scales with the Bloodtinge stat.
  • Bloodtinge has nice synergy with Skill builds, a +10 Simon's Bowblade has an S scaling in both Skill and Bloodtinge for example.

      it should be noted that most enemies have a HUGE resistance to blood damage, which is why firearms do such piss damage until you have a high enough bloodtinge.

          Agree, but it serves its purpose. Even if that purpose is a bit of a niche; more bullet capacity would have been a REALLY good thing to tie with Bloodtinge though, or maybe taking less damage from pulling quick bullets. I think its balanced as it is for the most part though since the majority of builds use either Bloodtinge or Arcane and being able to reap the benefits of both would be a little overkill.

            Bloodtingue is the most lacking stat, being only helpful for a few high scaling blood guns and few weapons.
            Bloodtingue should have been given more to do, like increasing most man made attack items(Molotovs, grenades, mines, powder stuff, knives, etc), increase the amount of bullets, increase some critical damage, more hunter weapons scaling on Blood, or weapon charge attacks... I dunno... Make it more useful :(

              What's a recommended amount of bloodtinge for using the Bloodletter? Also does it scale a noticeable amount past 50 bloodtinge?

                Well... I've been playing Bloodborne for quite sometime now, and I think it's time for me to make a bloodtinge build (without the dlc as I don't have it yet). Does something like 40 vitality, 30 Endurance, 25 SKL, and 50 Bloodtinge sound good for a build using the Chikage, Evyline and Rifle Spear? Chould I side a bit more towards SKL? or is a bit more vitality recommended because of the health you sacrife for more bullets? I don't know, what do you guys think?

                  Idk why but to me this stat feels very lackluster. It would be cool if bloodtinge did something like lower the amount of health for blood bullets or something. I mean arcane you get all these cool gadgets with variety of effects but bloodtinge doesn't have anything that really stands out except one really good weapon and guns which become useless once you run out of ammo.

                    so the other elements and damage types are obvious but what is weak to bloodtinge? everything? (well except the moon presence obviously)

                      So increasing it doesn't at all aid in triggering the stagger required for a V.ATK? Cuz I've noticed times where I've timed the parry at the right time and the enemy shrugged it off :\ or like someone else said, maybe it makes your V.ATKs stronger?

                        Not the wiki's, but the game's itself. The Chikage uses bloodtinge, but not quicksilver.
