Sword points


Melee weapons in Blood­borne are able to trans­form, mean­ing that they can be al­tered in the mid­dle of com­bat to ful­fil dif­fer­ent pur­poses. The blade seen in much of the pro­mo­tional art­work, for ex­am­ple, can be used as a sin­gle­handed sword-type weapon or a wider­reach­ing scythe. We had the op­por­tu­nity to try out the Hunter’s Axe, which switches from a very fast strik­ing weapon with puny reach into a per­ilously slow twohanded bat­tleaxe, ca­pa­ble of de­liv­er­ing stun­ning at­tacks and even sin­gle-hit kills. There are more trans­for­ma­tions in store than just heavy/ light com­bos. The trans­form­ing cane can shift from a straight-up fenc­ing sword into a midrange bladed whip, a bit like the Puzzling Stone Sword from Dark Souls II’s Sunken King
