Weak Points is a gameplay mechanic in Bloodborne.


The player and most enemies have specific weak points that can be attacked for heavy staggering and bonus damage. Attacking enemies weak points will often render them open for a Visceral Attack and Open Foe Bonus.

  • Headshot is a combat mechanic that is only applied to projectile attacks. A headshot will deal more 40% damage and heavily stagger humanoid enemies like Hunstmen, Huntsman's Minion, and other players.
