Several hostile Hunters can be found throughout Bloodborne. A notable difference between the player character (you) and these NPC hunters is that while their reload animation for the firearms is much longer than yours, they also have infinite Quicksilver Bullets. This can become very annoying when the hunter in question is in possession of items such as the Old Hunter Bone , the Cannon, or A Call Beyond. Several miniboss-type hunters such as Djura, Yurie, and the Bloody Crow of Cainhurst are actually hunters with all their stats set to 99.

- Father Gascoigne, as well as Gehrman, share similar behavior to regular NPC hunters, although they are not categorized as such.
- Father Gascoigne is found in Central Yharnam, at the Tomb of Oedon, using a Hunter Axe and Hunter Pistol that fires a shotgun shot, similar to the Hunter Blunderbuss.
- Gehrman, the First Hunter is found in the Hunter's Dream, encountered as a possible boss fight after killing Mergo's Wet Nurse. He will use a variant of Hunter Blunderbuss, that has the ability to fire a single bullet, like the Pistol, that can put players into a staggered position instantly.
- Both Eileen and Alfred, Hunter of Vilebloods can be hostile in other locations, but only if the player has provoked them, making them different from those who actively seek out the player. In the case of the former, if certain conditions in her quest are not met, she will become hostile towards the player.
