The weapons in Bloodborne are unique in themselves. You will find some melee weapons to be extremely interesting. These are basically of two different types. One is, those weapons which can be attached to each other and used as a deadly combination, another is the type of weapons which can transform themselves and turn into the ultimate killing machines.
The Hunter Axe has the unique ability to convert into hand axe or pole axe depending upon your need. This weapon can act as the ultimate execution tool for even the strongest bosses of Bloodborne.
This Axe has a typical curved edge for a clean sharp chop and are much heavier than other weapons which a hunter can hold in his hand.
The Hunter BlunderBuss is basically a gun which causes damage by shooting rounds and firing upon the enemies. The specialty of this weapon is that it can fire more than one bullet in one shot. This is a short range weapon. Blunderbuss is most effective when dealing with a mob of enemies. This gun will do more than intended if used correctly.
The Hunter Pistols are long range weapons used by hunters, even if they do not possess the power of a Hunter BlunderBuss but compensates with more high fire rate and larger range. The Hunter Pistols shots QuickSliver Bullets making it a deadly and a more powerful weapon than the shotguns.
As mentioned earlier, some of the weapons in Bloodborne can be attached together to form the most unique and deadly weapons, Kirkhammer is one of those weapons. A player will have access to a sword with which he can slash his enemies and for the ultimate killing blow attach this sword to a huge hammer by just using L1 and completely destroy the boss.
In its smaller form the Threaded cane is a blade used to slash enemies, but as soon as it is transformed into a whip it becomes a long range weapon covered in smaller blades which cuts through your enemy spilling a large pool of blood.
This was the very first weapon to be revealed by the developers: From Software when the Hunter character for Bloodborne was shown off. This weapon can be used as a pole arm with a long handle which makes use of the large force to slice the one at the receiving end.
