The Accursed Brew is a Hunter Tool in Bloodborne's The Old Hunters DLC.


In-Game Description

Skull of a local from the violated fishing village. The inside of the skull was forcibly searched for eyes, as evidenced by innumerable scratches and indentations.
No wonder the skull became stewed in curses.
They who offer baneful chants. Weep with them, as one in trance.



When this Hunter Tool is used, the caster throws a concentrated arcane ball that deals moderate damage for the price of 2 QS Bullets. It has a very small arc and explodes after a short distance.

Within PvE, it might not be as efficient as firing the Blacksky Eye twice. However, it can hit multiple opponents and can be used more tactically in PvP by using it unlocked and/or purposefully throwing it on the ground. Predicting an opponents' location with timing can be tricky, but rewarding.


  • This Hunter Tool is most useful against multiple enemies. Using it on a single opponent is wasteful, unless it is another hunter.


  • From the excessive holes in the skull shown in the icon of this item, it would appear that the Hunters who trespassed the Fishing Hamlet subjected its denizens to an extreme amount of trepanation, to the point of death.
    • Trepanation is the act of drilling holes through the skull as to alleviate intracranial pressure from injuries.
  • This Hunter Tool's casting animation is nearly identical as casting a Fireball in the Dark Souls series. The only differences being, obviously, that it deals Arcane damage and that it explodes after a certain distance.
  • Upon closer inspection of the use of this hunter tool, it would seem as if the skull itself is not thrown, but rather its contents, which makes sense as this is referred to as a "Brew".
