Bloodborne Hunter Badges Locations Guide and What They Unlock

By   /   Mar 25, 2015

Hunter Badges in Bloodborne are a kind of special ‘trophy’ that are acquired by completing certain tasks or just by looting specific chests/corpses. Once acquired, badges can be traded with Messengers for special weapons and attire (armor) in the game.

Badges unlock many very good weapons, and since there aren’t too many of them to collect, it’s a very good idea to get them all to acquire all the weapons associated with them.
