Bloodborne boss guide

Bloodborne isn't a game for the weak of heart. If the myriad Vilebloods and feral beasts don't do you in, the army of bosses will. Whether it's the gigantic and intimidating Amygdala or the horrific Vicar Amelia, the big bads of Bloodborne are dangerous.

Lucky for you, there are specific patterns to their attacks and actions you can take to make the fights a little easier - most of the bosses in this guide were actually beaten on the first try. You can do it! Pick a boss below, and we'll get started.
