Gestures are a gameplay mechanic in Bloodborne. Some gestures are already in the gestures menu, while others must be learned

In-Game Description

Click the left side of the touch pad to open the Gestures Menu, refer to the icons on the Gestures Menu, and move the controller accordingly while holding X.


Gestures are most commonly used to display some kind of emotion or try to entice other players to do something, although in rare cases they serve a practical purpose. For example, a gesture that seems like a taunt may bait anger, while a gesture that looks welcoming may attract friendliness. Meanwhile, gestures can also be used in imaginative ways, such as this. The Make Contact gesture has some significance within the plot, and is also used to gain a Moon rune from the Brain of Mensis
