The Hateful Maggot is a vicious enemy in Bloodborne. It is often found in groups ready to ambush the hunter. Small and low to the ground, they are difficult to hit with many weapons, and will attack throwing themselves at the Hunter continuously.
- Hateful Maggots writhe in the innards of Silverbeasts, and will emerge if the latter is killed by means other than fire or visceral attack.
- Dealing with their jumps and swarm is difficult. Using an AOE is effective only if you can point it to the ground where they are. Otherwise, slash weapons work effectively as thrust is likely to miss the mark.
- Will perform a small jumping attack that will add Frenzy. The attack itself isn't too dangerous, but the Frenzy can be deadly.
