How to defeat the Bloodthirsty Beast
Don’t underestimate the Bloodthirsty Beast, as it represents the first real big challenge for Bloodborne players (albeit optional), but with our advice you won’t have any problems. Before the fight try to get the Archibugio of the hunter and the antidotes. If the latter are only readily available, for the first the speech is different: if you have not chosen it as your starting firearm you can retrieve it from the messenger of the Vat inside the Hunter’s Dream.
Be prepared psychologically because you will have to memorize his attacks and combos, as they are difficult to dodge and do enormous damage. Also note that as his life declines he begins to release poison from his body, so you will be poisoned with practically every hit. The last phase is the worst, as the monster becomes even more aggressive and will not leave you breathless to heal you.
The aim to make it is to stun the boss and hit him immediately afterwards. The trick is to find a window of time to stun it: when the beast raises the claw it will be the right time to hit it, shoot with the harquebus to block it and render it helpless. By performing this move cyclically you will have more opportunities to knock him out and the fight will go smoother than expected, since you will only have to worry about dodging the blows. To backstab once stunned, you can also hit him from the front.
Poison is a problem, and if you run out of antidotes, go behind the altar to retrieve 3 from a poor corpse. In case all this doesn’t work, throw a bottle of acrid blood in a corner, the beast will follow the scent and you can attack it freely for a few seconds.
Reward: Chalice of Pthumeru
