Evelyn is a Firearm in Bloodborne; it's one of three pistol firearms in the game.

 

Evelyn Description

"Special pistol used by Cainhurst knights.
The Evelyn uses Quicksilver Bullets, just as any workshop firearm, but the Cainhurst variant relies more on bloodtinge.
Lovingly named after a woman and graced with an intricate design, Evelyns were adored by Cainhurst knights."

 

Evelyn Information

  • Requires 16 Bloodstone Shards, 16 Twin Bloodstone Shards, 16 Bloodstone Chunks, 1 Blood Rock and 6720 Blood Echoes to fully upgrade.

Player Notes

  • It has the highest potential Bloodtinge scaling amongst all firearms in Bloodborne.
    • At 20 Bloodtinge and below, the Hunter Pistol deals more damage. At 21, both firearms are equal, and at 22+ the Evelyn deals superior damage.
    • However, the Repeating Pistol deals more damage at the cost of using two Quicksilver Bullets instead of one.
  • It has a unique pattern for firing compared to the other two pistols that very slightly affects the area shot.
  • When comparing the Evelyn to the Repeating Pistol for a high bloodtinge build, it's important to try to find a balance between factors of ammo consumption, damage per shot and the enemy's defenses. While the Repeating Pistol offers more damage per shot, the Evelyn deals more damage per Quicksilver Bullet
    • At the same time, the Repeating Pistol consumes 2 bullets for a single instance of damage where spending 2 bullets with the Evelyn warrants 2 shots and in turn 2 seperate instances of damage, given both land. Therefore, the overall damage potential of 2 bullets spent with a shot from the Repeating Pistol will only be reduced once, where with 2 shots/bullets from the Evelyn, total damage is reduced twice. Given an enemy with low enough blood defense the Evelyn still has the potential to deliver more damage over time, however at higher levels the Repeating Pistol becomes a more dependable choice.
    • While the Repeating Pistol does have more dependable raw damage output, as a parrying tool the Evelyn is a far more economically viable pick for the simple fact that it consumes ammunition at half the rate of it's competition. Given this choice, not only will a player have double the damage potential for delivering ripostes with the default number of 20 bullets, but also be able to make full use of the 5 additional blood bullets they can create at any time. Given 2 players with a total of 25 bullets each, the one with a Repeating Pistol can only execute 12 parries where the one with the Evelyn can execute the full 25.
  • It has a unique firing animation, but doesn't shoot any faster than the other two pistols.

      Being able to parry spam while simultaneously dealing 260 damage in pvp is the most fun ive had with a soulsgame in years!

        For a Blootinge build, the best pistol is the Repeating Pistol. It does way more damage than the Evelyn. Just don't spam it, you'll run out of ammo quick

          Exceptional as an offhand tool at higher tinge. The only thing other pistols have over it at that point is length. You might have enemies clip through the thing's long barrel during parry attempts. The thing is as long as a blunderbuss, but you shoot the blunderbuss at the waist while you extend your arm for pistols, which can lead to awkward missed parries. This is rare, obviously, but very apparent when it inevitably happens

            Bloodborne's Evelyn is a flashy-looking projectile weapon found in a castle with a huge library.

            Coincidence?

                If the enemy is standing to close to you, a shot from Evelyn will miss entirely as the bullet fires farther away from the player.

                  Dunno what y'all are talking about, I've never had any trouble parrying with the Evelyn. As far as I can tell, it fires exactly the same way as the pistol, but with much better bloodtinge scaling. Unless, do you mean its aim is bad when you're not targeting? Because then the problem just lies with the player, not the weapon.

                    This used to say it was rthe fastest pistol, but (other than the Reiterpallasch) i did a side by side test in Sony Vegas and they all fire at the same rate.

                      Evelyn or Repeating Pistol05 Jul 2016 14:48  

                      I have been planning to make a gunmen build with bloodtinge hard capped. Which do you think is better to use, this one or the repeating pistol?

                        As I couldn't find it on the wiki and went hunting for it myself, I found it. Evelyn's chest is located next to the shortcut ladder towards end of the map, barricaded behind two desks and a staircase. In order to gain access to this area, one must use the small staircase to the right (when facing the chest) and jump across to the other side. Once there with Evelyn in hand, head straight up the staircase on the left side to get out of the barricade.

                          Not shooting straight05 Jul 2016 14:48  

                          Anyone else find the animation causes it not to shoot straight especially on an angle? I find the HP and RP seem to shoot a lot more straighter and I think it's because of the animation or it could be just me.

                            I made a video using my character with Chikage/Evelyn build, feel free to ask me anything :) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KOZiKnA19Fs

                              Did some cleaning up on the page, and I'm hoping I got the numbers right. Personally I think this firearm is cool, but one thing I regret is that I couldn't find any information on the "twist draw" that I was talking about earlier. Might have to hit up a bookstore regarding famous gun duels if I ever want to verify this (look down on the comments section to figure out what I'm talking about).

                                Is there any way to open up more rune slots on the evelyn? I feel like I've been wasting my blood chunks trying to upgrade it.

                                  Do not use in PvE.05 Jul 2016 14:48  

                                  This weapon is completely useless in PvE, it misses every single target less than a mile away from you. If you got Evelyn for anything other than PvP, you wasted your time.
