Make Contact is a gesture in Bloodborne. Gestures are "emotes" that the player may perform, usually to communicate with other players. Some special gestures are used to trigger unique effects in-game.
How to obtain Make Contact
- It is learned by interacting with the immobile statue in Upper Cathedral Ward.
Make Contact Usage
- It can be used in front of the Brain of Mensis to gain the Moon Caryll Rune.

I think that this gesture is static. Your character messes up at first, puts wrong arm up at first in an alien greeting. Then after one ten seconds of nothing happening he realises his mistake and awkwardly switches hands.
You get the rune from the brain and praise from the doll only after you change hands, so they recognize it is now correct)
Make contact to assert dominance over great ones
Why are there no pictures?
The make contact gesture is actually a very real proposed way of greeting potential ET life. It makes a right angle with your arms, symbolizing a knowledge of mathematics and geometry.
I believe this gesture is a form of ritual or worship , since the room where you learn this from lies right in sight of the moon , perhaps it was used to guide the light of moon for say blessing or whatever
Did this irl and a weird ass brain appeared infront of me and gave me a moon symbol
What's so cool about this gesture is that after you've made contact with the Brain of Mensis and got the Moon rune, the member of the School of Mensis who you learn it from changes positions and is seen grovelling/praying on the floor
Someone said it could be a representation of the progression from day to night, and I think that's the right of it. This gesture has one use in the game, you show it to the Brain of Mensis and receive the highest tier (and most clear) Moon rune. Caryll Runes are something like synesthetic pictographs of actual speech. So you show this gesture to a Great One and it responds to you, "moon."
Alternatively, it could be that the gesture is just an invitation to speak, and the Brain responds by recognizing you for what you really are, the moon scented hunter, and speaks that to you.
I love the complex meaning behind this gesture, and love each and every interpretation I've come across, guessing its exact meaning. I feel like I should be listening to Lateralus from Tool whenever I'm doing this gesture.
So it turns out the initial make contact gesture is wrong, so after a min or so your character will switch arms and that's the corrct make contact gesture.
any truers LULW
I tried to mimic the movements of Make Contact. It made my arms feel funny. I could feel my bones rub against each other. I did a full minute each side and it honestly, it felt super unnatural. It almost felt like something I couldn't see was interacting with me. Obviously nothing superstitious was happening, but it certainly makes you feel uneasy. Perhaps that feeling is why From decided on that pose to br the communion between humans and great ones.
You have to wait at the brain for about a minute to get the max level moon rune (+30%)
My girlfriend streched like the gesture when she was yawning. Maybe it was a coincidence but i thing yawning is the origin of make contact
Outside the Choirbuilding, you see a lot of those worms looking into a direction - the clocktower. Tick . Tock. Splish. Splash.
He change the arms if you wait something like a minut
I'm wondering if this gesture symbolizes the changing of Day to Night. The arms showing the change in horizons and how the sky moves around.
The brain of Mensis grants us the Moon rune when we show it the Night side of the gesture
tried this gesture in front of the doll to no reaction, waited a bit for when ur character switches arms and she clapped when I did which made me take a shit
Why is this not made into a meme, this gesture is the Bloodborne equivalent of Praise the Sun tho
im having a hard time finding the gesture, where specifically is it?
Tried this gesture in the boss area where the player character encounters the Living Failures and my character made the motion of making contact. Used the gesture in the direction of the sunflowers in the center of the area. Can anyone please verify whether or not the motion of the gesture is just something that happens whenever you use the gesture and wait, or if this is something that has some meaning behind it.
If you use this gesture in front of Ebrietas, does anything happens?
For the info
