The Torch is a Left Hand Weapon in Bloodborne.


In-Game Description

A common torch formed by wrapping a pine resin-drenched cloth around the end of a long stick.
Hunters choose torches not only because the hunt leads them to the darkest nooks, but also because certain creatures they encounter are possessed of a deathly fear of flame.



The Torch provides light in dark areas, more so than the Hand Lantern. It can be used to set enemies on fire.

Some enemies will remain at a distance from the Torch, such as the Beast Patients in Old Yharnam.


  • The Torch cannot be bought from the Bath Messengers. Only one of these can be found per playthrough, though it will respawn with each NG+.
  • It is inferior in every way to the Hunter's Torch. It cannot be upgraded, deals less damage, has lower Arcane scaling, and is otherwise identical to the Hunter's Torch.


  • Lorewise, the difference between the Hunter's Torch and the Torch is that one is a weapon with utility, and the other is just a utility.
