When looking for the best weapon in Bloodborne, this PS4 exclusive game, then you will notice right away that the number of weapons is limited in comparison to Dark Souls but you will find a good mix within those available. Not all weapons can be used right away, as you will need to complete your first playthrough or wait until later on in the game.
What are the best weapons in Bloodborne? There’s several lists found online and these are in article form, as well as within video walkthroughs. As detailed by Prima Games in their list of 6 top Bloodborne weapons, you should consider using the unique Tonitrus weapon with a Bolt attack that doesn’t need the player to use Bolt Paper.
Then we have the Burial Blade that is only available to purchase at the Bath Messenger shop after your first playthrough. This is once you start your New Game+ adventure, so if you are at that stage then the Burial Blade brings a combination of the Hunter Axe and Holy Sword.
The Hunter Pistol makes a perfect secondary weapon, and personally we also find this as our first choice for an alternative weapon. The stopping power is impressive, but it’s the extra speed that really sells the Hunter Pistol in our opinion and this makes it the perfect way to stun an enemy.
If you love delivering a lot of damage, then using the Hunter Axe in Bloodborne will more than make you happy. Where you lack in speed, you receive a bonus in the form of stopping power and damage. If this isn’t for you, then consider using the Threaded Cane or Saw Cleaver.
