In this section of the guide we will show Bloodborne you the best equipment to tackle the hunt in the immense universe of Yharnam!
RIGHT HAND - WHITE WEAPONS
The Hunter, he can carry up to two blank weapons at the same time. For our paraphernalia, we have chosen a slow but devastating sword and a less powerful stick with high speed and long range.
OPTION 1 - SACRED SWORD OF LUDWIG
Description - This sword is lethal in its normal form and incredibly devastating in its enhanced form. At level +10 this weapon reaches 200 basic DAMN points, there are only two weapons with a slightly greater damage: one is the LOGARIUS WHEEL that however sucks HP to the Hunter every time it is transformed (up to a maximum of 4 times in succession) and the other and the KIRKHAMMER that however has a combo compartment really limited consuming a large amount of Energy. The Sacred Sword of Ludwig is therefore a perfect mix of versatility and devastation able to inflict very high damage even to the most powerful bosses that, if hit in succession by the powerful blows of the sword, can even be stunned.
Parameters Required - 16 FORCE, 12 ENABILITY.
Faults - In the transformed version the Hunter will use the huge sword with both hands and will not be able to use firearms.
Where to find it - You will need to unlock the HUNTER STEMMA WITH RADIANT SWORD in front of the entrance to the CHURCH OF CARE workshop. From the CATHEDRAL WARD lantern, take the right door and take the elevator up. Cross the bridge and go up to the top floor. Just before the door you will find a casket containing the required coat of arms. Once you have it, you can buy the weapon in the MESSAGE TANK for 20,000 Blood Echoes.
OPTION 2 - THREADED STICK
Description - This Stick is really effective when it comes to facing small groups of enemies because it can turn into a long range whip. It is also great for treacherously hitting opponents from behind a shelter without suffering damage. At level +10, it reaches 156 basic DAMN points.
The version that can be found in the main game, also features the triangular slot in which you can insert powerful poisoned blood gems with which to inflict VELENO on enemies.
Parameters Required - 7 FORCE, 9 EQUIPMENT.
Faults - The Stick does not have a high attack and although it has powerful lunges, it is not very effective against large enemies.
Where to find it - This weapon is part of the 3 in the initial choice. Or you'll have to unlock the SAW HUNTER STEMMA by defeating the big pig in the sewers of Yharnam, under the bridge leading to FATHER GASCOIGNE. Once you get it, you can buy the weapon in the MESSAGE TANK for 1200 Blood Echoes.
LEFT HAND - FIREARMS
The Hunter can carry up to two firearms at the same time. For our armamentarium, we used the same criteria as swords and chose a fast and versatile firearm accompanied by a slow but devastating weapon.
OPTION 1 - HUNTER/EVELYN GUN
(BLOOD DYEING ABOVE 30 ONLY)
Description - This gun is fast and capable of hitting even distant enemies. At level +10 this weapon reaches 160 basic DANNO points. Although there are firearms that achieve higher damage, the Hunter's Pistol doesn't consume HP or useless bullets, it almost always hits the target and is great for breaking enemy combos and carrying out bloody attacks that stun your opponent. If you want, you can replace the Hunter's GUN with the EVELYN later, which is really more effective than the Gun only after reaching 30 points in the BLOOD TINT.
Parameters Required - 7 FORCE, 9 EQUIPMENT, 5 BLOOD TINT.
Flaws - The gun has no major flaws and is a well calibrated weapon in any sector as long as you have a Blood Tint enhancement of at least 20/25 points.
Where to find it - This firearm is part of the 2 in the initial choice. Or you'll have to unlock the SAW HUNTER STEMMA by defeating the big pig in the sewers of Yharnam, under the bridge leading to FATHER GASCOIGNE. Once you get it, you can buy the weapon in the MESSAGE TANK for 1600 Blood Echoes.
OPTION 2 - CANNON
Description - This is, without a doubt, the most powerful firearm in the game. At the +10 level this weapon reaches 600 basic DANNO points, a crazy attack value. Unfortunately, the cannon consumes a lot of bullets so you'll have to use it in combos with OEDON INFORMATION Runes which increase the maximum limit of Mercury Bullets and with OEDON CONTORSION Runes which allow you to reload them by performing Bloody Attacks. Thanks to the BONE MIDDLE POWDER you can also further enhance the attack of the cannon and damage even the most powerful bosses by removing up to almost half life point (then also depends on the value of your TINT OF BLOOD).
Parameters Required - 30 FORCE, 13 ENABILITY.
Faults - Unfortunately the devastating power of the Cannon has a high cost of 12 Mercury Bullets per shot. Only thanks to the Runes mentioned above you will be able to master it properly by firing two rounds and loading them again.
Where to find it - The Cannon is located on a beam high up in the mill with the elevator in the PROHIBITED WOODS. Go up the wooden stairs in the mill and out the window. Take the ladder at the bottom left and just before going outside again, in the area with the BELVA MAN looking for a safe place, look underneath the centre of the mill to see some corpses on some beams. Throw yourself on these beams to pick up the cannon.
A Hunter's clothing is made up of 4 pieces ( Legs, Arms, Feet and Head ). Among the many outifts and tests that we have done what has been the absolute best set, able to cope with every situation and with well balanced parameters in each category is:
Description- This is certainly one of the best if not the best costume in the game. Its perfectly balanced parameters allow the Hunter to cope with all eventualities.
You'll hardly be able to replace it with another costume.
But let's see its parameters in detail:
- TOTAL DEFENSE - 270
- TOTAL IMPACT DEFENSE - 270
- DEFENSE TOTAL LUNGE - 220
- TOTAL BLOOD DEFENSE - 270
- TOTAL ARCANE DEFENSE - 150
- TOTAL FIRE DEFENSE - 280
- TOTAL LIGHTNING DEFENSE - 200
- TOTAL SLOW POISON DEFENSE- 41
- TOTAL RAPID POISON DEFENSE- 80
- TOTAL MADNESS DEFENSE - 119
- TOTAL BESTIALITY DEFENSE - 112
STEAMS - As you can see, the only flaw is that the dress is a bit weak at the VELVENATION, nothing that can't be solved with a few RUNA or by boosting the Energy up to about 25/30 points.
WHERE TO FIND IT-Use the LANTERN of the BIG BRIDGE, the one that appears after killing the CHIERICAL BELVA. Walk along the bridge until you find ladders on the left after the wolves. Go down to find yourself above the area with the bonfire in the square. If you look between some boxes you will find a passage. Go down into the sewer from the ladder that you will find and continue to the bottom of this area. Go down to the lower area and just before the cliff (which takes you to the other area of the sewers) you will find the costume on a corpse on the left.
These Tools can be used as simple objects but have unlimited use as long as you have the right number of bullets to use them and the necessary points to equip them.
EMPTY SPECTRUM SHELL
Description - This casing, abandoned by a Great Being, allows you to instantly increase the Strength of the main weapon by about 60 points, turning physical damage into arcane damage and also giving a purely aesthetic glow to your sword. The duration of the upgrade is 60 seconds and can be repeated in battle.
Parameters Required - 15 ARCAN POINTS
Flaws - Instantly consumes 3 Bullets of Mercury with each use.
Where to find it - In BYRGENWERTH, go up to the top floor of the central building thanks to the ladder located on the balcony of the second floor. You will find this Tool in a chest at the top.
