An interesting secret/bug has been discovered in PlayStation 4 exclusive Bloodborne which makes the game and boss battle very very easy, in short you can call this bug a “How To Activate Bloodborne Easy Mode”. The glitch/bug was discovered by Reddit user Meatballz and other users in the comment section of a thread “How to active Bloodborne easy mode” confirmed its working.
According to Meatballz, Bloodborne on PS4 suffers from memory leak because of which move set of the bosses reduces. This memory leak issue occurs if you left Bloodborne for running too far long (12 plus hours).
Here is what Meatballz has to say:
“Leave your game running for 12+ hours. Seriously. There’s a memory leak issue in this game that causes bosses to have a reduced moveset after the game has been running for a long time. I wondered for a long time why so many bosses in my initial playthrough seemed so easy. Turns out I’m not just a Bloodborne badass who can 1-shot the bosses other people have trouble with, it was because I marathoned the whole game in one sitting and around the 12-hour mark bosses became much simpler.
I just tested this yesterday by turning off the PS4 power saving options and leaving Bloodborne running all night. Sure enough, when I played in the morning Logarius had transformed from an intense spell casting maniac into a senile old man who did nothing but attack with his scythe over and over. BSB stops jumping all over the room and doing multi-hit combos and just politely spams his side-swipe, Amelia stops healing, One Reborn stops pooping acid, every boss changes in some way and ultimately becomes much easier.”
Some other users of Reddit via comment section confirmed this development i.e. reduced move-set of bosses if Bloodborne is kept running for too long.
“I had this issue on my first playthrough too.
- Mergo’s Wet Nurse did nothing but walk towards me while flailing. No dark cloud phase. She was basically stuck walking towards me like a slow lawnmower.
- Micolash did nothing but try to hit me with his fists. No tentacle attack, no cosmos attack.
- Ebrietas repeatedly faceplanted and spit blood at me. No cosmos attack, no forward lunge, no variations.
- Logarius just used his scythe attack, zero spellcasting. He was permanently stuck swinging at me like this.
- Abhorrent beast did nothing but his 3 hit combo in every phase.
Needless to say, I was very disappointed at the bosses until I started looking up Youtube videos and I saw them doing completely different things. Then I learned about the memory leak. This is very important information that everyone should know.”
As a proof, Meatballz posted two gameplay footage, you can watch them below.
