The Kos Parasite is a Trick Weapon in Bloodborne's The Old Hunters dlc.

Description

In-Game Description

When the carcass of Kos washed up on the coast, its insides were teeming with tiny parasites unlike any found in humans.
This atypical weapon can only be clasped tight and swung, but a Kos Parasite is said to stimulate phantasms inhabiting a lumenwood.

Availability

Characteristics

While the weapon appears to be the Hunter's bare fists at first, using it in tandem with the Milkweed reveals its true form, that of many tentacles sprouting from the Hunter's right hand, with more tentacles emerging from the left hand when the weapon is transformed.

The Kos Parasite is a singular weapon for many reasons. The most obvious is that it deals solely Arcane damage. It has also the highest stat requirement in Arcane for Trick Weapons.

When it comes to its attacks, they are all very slow, with very awkward stumbling on part of the player, yet do not be fooled, every attacks deals a lot of damage.

Additionally, it has multiple strange moves such as whipping a tongue-like tentacle that sprouts from the players head, a spit back step attack, that deals Slow Poison, and a special move that creates multiple bursts of Arcane blasts, within a certain radius, which deal considerable damage. At high levels of Arcane, players can often one-shot other players with this move alone.

The Kos Parasite has "hyper armor" in some attacks, including the special Arcane blast.

The right hand return to its original human state upon performing a Visceral Attack.

Notes

  • It's entirely possible to use this weapon without the Milkweed rune, however, though the damage output will suffer, it is still viable enough. This may surprise adversaries in PVP as you will deal a considerable amount of damage with your seemingly bare hands.

Trivia

  • When performing any sort of dodge, the player will move in a flailing manner as if it was almost a puppet being pulled.
    • This is especially noticeable when rolling forward, where you simply float back into a standing position, which could imply that the stimulated lumenwood is capable of subtly manipulating fundamental forces such as gravity.
