  • You can dodge most enemy attacks by using “I-Frames”. I frames or invincibility frames are the frames where you are invulnerable ie You can dodge an enemy’s attack without taking a hit. Using I-frames is key to punishing enemy attacks by dodging while staying in range to counterattack.
  • Although there are shields in the game, we don’t recommend using them since Parrying is a much better option in Bloodborne’s combat mechanics. Unlike Dark Souls, where shields are very effective, Bloodborne rewards you for being aggressive and parry instead of sitting and waiting behind a shield.
  • There is no best starting weapon for beginners in Bloodborne. It’s down to personal preference. Choose what you like. You can save and reload at any time prior to weapon selection.
