Vermin is a consumable item in Bloodborne. It was added with Patch 1.07.


In-Game Description

A centipede-like creature discovered on successful hunts by League hunters.
Vermin, found hidden within filth, are only seen by League confederates, and are the root of man's impurity. The League has assumed the task of finding and crushing all vermin.
Perhaps there is some mercy in the madness. Those who wish to see vermin can, and those who choose to are provided with boundless purpose.


It can only be obtained through these methods if the Impurity rune is equipped:


Vermin is used to level up in The League, and progress through Valtr's questline. Only 5 are required to finish it.


  • The 3 red-eyed Old Hunters in the Hunter's Nightmare will drop Vermin when the Impurity rune is equipped, thus reducing the number of times a player must engage with others in online play.
  • Co-Operation using the Old Hunter Bell does not give you Vermin.
    • However, summoning Valtr by equipping the Impurity rune and defeating a boss with him surviving the battle will reward 1 Vermin.
    • Valtr can be summoned twice, once for Ludwig, the Accursed and once for Laurence, the First Vicar, meaning it is possible to obtain 5 Vermin needed to complete Valtr's questline when offline in a single game cycle, even if it is difficult to have him survive both fights successfully.
