When playing Bloodborne, there are different stats to focus on. If a player cares about Strength, these are the best guns for them.
Bloodborne is the best game on the PS4, so you can’t talk about the best games on the PS4 without mentioning it. FromSoftware took the unique formula they came up with for Dark Souls and used it to great effect on a new IP with a surprising amount of meme potential. Bloodborne is one of the best games of all time because it takes place in a Lovecraftian world and has brutal but fair fights.
In melee fighting, a player’s damage is based on two stats: Strength and Skill. Even though other stats can affect close-range fighting, there’s no doubt that these two skills are what players should focus on when making a build. People who want to use Bloodborne’s bigger and heavier weapons to their full potential should focus on Strength instead of building up their skills. Here are the best Bloodborne Strength weapons for people who want to get the most out of their Strength build and do as much damage as possible.
Fist Of Gratia
The Old Hunters, a new part of the game, added the Fist of Gratia. One of Simple Gratia’s favorite weapons. The story of the game says that Gratia wasn’t smart enough to use complicated guns, so she beat up monsters with a solid piece of metal instead.
Even though the Fist of Gratia isn’t useful for everyone (it takes up a valuable Firearm spot), certain Strength builds will love how it opens up enemies and stops their attacks. It might be a strange tool for people who have tried a lot of different Bloodborne builds, but it’s not necessary.
The Tonitrus is a great weapon because it can do extra bolt damage when it transforms. This means that it can do more damage to most enemies and the most difficult bosses in the game.
But if you want the Tonitrus to do the most damage, you have to go for a Strength/Arcane build, which may be too much to ask of some people.
In general, the Strength stat doesn’t really help the game much when it comes to choosing Firearms. Instead, Bloodtinge changes how much damage a bullet does. This doesn’t mean that players who like Strength are out of luck, though.
The Cannon is in the Forbidden Woods. It takes a ridiculous 12 Quicksilver Bullets to fire (if players have less than that, they can still fire one last shot). It can do a lot of damage, though, which is what you’d expect from a Firearm that needs 30 Strength to use. In the end, though, its restricted uses and inability to be used in real life made it less useful.
The Powder Kegs, a group of hunters who liked to try out new, super-dangerous weapons, made the Stake Driver, which is powerful but not very useful.
The Stake Driver is a short-ranged, brutal tool that can drive stakes into its enemies. In particular, a fully charged R2 attack is very powerful, but it’s hard to hit because it’s so slow. The Stake Driver is one of the most underrated Trick Weapons in the game. It has a lot of promise but isn’t as good as other Strength weapons.
The Kirkhammer has the second-highest scaling with Strength out of all the weapons in the base game, which is enough to put it on this list.
One of the main reasons why the Kirkhammer is so low on the list is that it doesn’t do much damage when it’s not transformed. When it is transformed, however, it can do a lot of damage, but the attacks are so slow that the player is vulnerable to a counterattack with every attack.
The Boom Hammer is the first DLC weapon on this list. It is a useful tool that can cause an explosion with its changed attack.
The Boom Hammer isn’t a very interesting tool to use in battle, though, because it doesn’t have much going for it besides this extra caveat. So, like the Stake Driver, it is often passed over in favor of weapons that change into something more exciting.
The Beast Claw might not have a lot of range or seem that great, but it’s easily one of the most fun and exciting weapons to use in battle.
Pairing this weapon with the Beast’s Embrace rune is the best and most suggested way to use it. This lets the Beast Claw hit enemies with a new set of moves and earn Beasthood for each successful attack. This puts the player in a situation where they can kill most enemies with just a few hits, but they can also be killed in one hit. It’s easily one of the most exciting tools in the game that players can use if they want to. It doesn’t use Strength as much as some other skills and has a very short range, though.
Before The Old Hunters update came out, there wasn’t really a good way to use a Strength/Bloodtinge build with a weapon. The Bloodletter did a great job of filling this need.
You can get this cruel tool from the killer Brador. It starts out as a short, simple club, but its changed form. Which the player can use by giving up some HP, has a huge range and can do a lot of damage. It even has a great AoE blast attack. But if the Hunter isn’t careful with their build, this can do a lot of damage to them. It’s hard to use and you only get it very late in the game, which makes it less useful.
It’s a great thing about Bloodborne that the starting weapons are balanced so well that the player can use them all the way to the endgame without too much trouble.
The Hunter’s Axe is a great example of this. As it is a very powerful tool that is also easy to use. Players can’t go wrong if they start and end the game with this tool. Its changed mode has a long reach and a famous spin-to-win charged move. With this in hand, the player is ready to fight any of the game’s many bad guys.
During Bloodborne’s advertising, the Saw Cleaver was shown off a lot, and it’s easy to see why. After all, this weapon is one of, if not the best, starting weapon. And it kills most enemies with the most ease.
The fact that it does 20% more damage to beasts is very helpful throughout the game. But especially early on when most of the tough enemies that players face are beasts.
Ludwig’s Holy Blade
Since Bloodborne came out, this famous weapon has been a favorite of many players. It’s a quick, light blade that can be changed into a two-handed heavy hitter. It’s a powerful and flexible blade that works well in both PvE and PvP.
Most of the time, it’s called a “quality” weapon, which means that putting the same amount of points into Strength and Skill makes the most of its damage potential, which is very high for a lot of quality weapons in Soulsborne games. It is very good at stunning foes and making slow, heavy blows. The only reason it doesn’t win is because it doesn’t put as much weight on Strength as some of the other weapons here.
The Beast Cutter is the second DLC weapon on this list. As its name suggests, it is a very strong weapon that can cut down any enemy with ease.
It’s a serrated weapon like the Saw Cleaver, which should be clear. It can easily take out large groups of enemies because it has a wide range, does a lot of damage, and can stun them.
The fact that the best Strength weapons in Drift Boss game come from this extra content shows how good it is. This big name is given to the Amygdalan Arm, and it’s easy to see why.
The untransformed mode can easily stun most foes, while the transformed mode has a very long reach and can slowly chip away at the health of tougher enemies while staying safe. When it comes to Strength guns in Bloodborne, it really does do everything.
Logarius’ Wheel has the best scaling for Strength of any weapon in the base game. It also looks great in battle, making it an instant favorite among players who build their characters around Strength.
Even though it might take a while to get this weapon—unless the player is cruel enough to kill Alfred before the end of his questline—the end result is more than worth it.
A lot of people think that the Whirligig Saw is the best tool in Bloodborne. And it’s easy to see why. Even though using a mechanical saw in battle is cool on its own, the Whirligig Saw really shines because of how much damage its modified L2 can do while also putting enemies in a stunlock.
The fact that this move also works on bosses is one of the main reasons why gamers love the Whirligig Saw. Any boss that is giving the player trouble. Which is most of them, can be taken care of quickly and easily with this tool.
Bloodborne is now out for PS4.
