Bloodborne: Blood-Starved Beast boss fight guide

This boss is definitely going to put up a challenge.

Introduction

Bloodborne is a very interesting action role-playing game played from a third-person perspective. In fact, it has one of the most interesting Gothic world-themes. There are also many amazing battles with various bosses, item collecting objectives, interactionы with different strange non-player characters and many more things to explore.

Undoubtedly the most interesting part of the game is when you have to face the various bosses you come across. Probably the most famous one has to be the Blood-Starved Beat. Apart from looking awesome, he is also very hard to deal with because of the high damage output due to the poisonous attacks and incredible speed. Of course, he also has a weak spot - he is very susceptible to fire.

Let's take a look at how to get to the boss, deal with him and of course, what kind of a reward are you going to end up with.

How To Kill the Blood-starved Beast

Killing this boss is definitely easier said than done. In order to even stand a chance, make sure to have at least ten Antidotes, Blood Vials, Molotov Cocktails, and Bullets. If you don't have any of the resources mentioned above, you are going to have a very hard time dealing with this guy. 

  • It is important to remember that this boss has three different phases that he goes through. First, when the battle begins, you need to go to melee range, lock him in position and just keep moving left in order to avoid as much damage as possible. This is something that you need to do for the entire duration of the fight. Occasionally, the boss will lift his right arm, which will allow you to strike with a melee attack, including the so-called "Visceral Attack" which does pretty decent damage. If he raises both of his arms, you can just sidestep twice and start swinging at him.
  • The next very important step for you to do is when you bring him down to around 60% health. At that point, he will basically become bloodlust and start doing a lot more damage, become faster and all those kinds of bad stuff. This is when you enter the second phase - you need to be a lot more offensive in order to stand a chance because if you are not, he will just run over you.
    If the boss manages to hit you with his attacks, use one of the antidotes and blood vials in order to continue the fight. However, don't waste them if you are not stroke by him because you will lose a lot of dps. Also, while you are running, you can always throw a Molotov at him for some extra damage.
  • The final stage of this boss is when he reaches around 30% health. This is when it gets scary because the boss becomes very hard to deal with. He does damage even when you are just standing next to him in addition to being very fast and aggressive. At this point, any mistake which you make is very likely to be your last one. This makes it the perfect time to start spamming those Molotovs. Just be patient and the end results will come in a couple of minutes. If you rush the fight too much, the result is definitely not going to be in your favor.

A few bonus tips on dealing with the boss

A very good idea to do is to get at least four (or more) Pungent Blood Cocktails before you start the fight against this boss. Those cocktails are very strong because they can lure the boss a bit which means that you can position him wherever you want to. So, when he starts moving towards it, you can easily get a free bonus attack and he can't do anything about it.  It is also advisable to use some fire paper as well as Molotov Cocktails because as we mentioned earlier, this boss is very susceptible to fire damage.

You can get this Pungent Blood from the Hunter Dreams store for around 2000 blood echos each. In addition to that, you can also pick them up while looting various treasures that are scattered throughout the world.

Where To Find Blood-starved Beast & Rewards

In order to find the Blood-starved Beast, you need to go outside of the Old Yharnam, which is close to the lantern. From there, take the stairs on the right and then just enter the second room. Walk past it and then just keep looking until you find a church which has a very strange and glowing entrance - this is where the boss is.

In terms of rewards, you can get the following:

  • Pthumeru Chalice
  • 6600 Blood Echoes
