Bloodborne weapons guide

Side Arms 

Hunter Blunderbuss, Hunter Pistol

Can be chosen as a starting firearm in Hunter's Dream. Also available for purchase from the Bath Messenger.

Cannon

Found in Forbidden Woods. After passing the lane where (appropriately) a cannon fires on you, you'll reach this large building. Head inside, then cross to the opposite balcony back outside. Drop off the ledge here, follow it around, and climb the ladder - there's a beast enemy back here too, for the record. After climbing, you'll find yourself on the rafters back inside. Drop to the next walkway down and loot this off the corpse near the centre gears.

Evelyn

Evelyn is a rifle you can obtain in Forsaken Castle Cainhurst. When you reach the library, you'll find it in chest behind two desks in the back right. To get to it, use the mobile stairs next to the tables to hop over.

Flamesprayer

Can be purchased from the Bath Messenger after obtaining the Radiant Sword Hunter Badge.

Hunter's Torch

From the Old Yharnam lantern, head straight forward into the town. Drop down the first few rooftops until you reach something of a balcony. There are two poisonous enemies here; take them out and check the little alcove here to find the sidearm.

Ludwig's Rifle

Can be purchased from the Bath Messenger after obtaining the Radiant Sword Hunter Badge.

Repeating Pistol

Available for purchase from the Bath Messenger after defeating the Cleric Beast.

Rosmarinus

Can be purchased from the Bath Messenger after obtaining the Cosmic Eye Watcher Badge.

Torch

Found in Central Yharnam. After passing the large street area with the infected mob (you'll hear something knocking on the doors at the end of the street), you'll find this troll enemy in the next area. Kill him then loot the nearby corpse for this side arm.

Wooden Shield

Take the upper exit from the Cathedral Ward lantern, make a right, and follow the tall staircase. As you head up, you'll encounter two masked enemies. Take them out, then proceed to the top of the stairs to find the shield.
