Ludwig's Holy Blade is a Trick Weapon in Bloodborne.


In-Game Description

A trick weapon typically used by Healing Church hunters.
It is said that the silver sword was employed by Ludwig, the first hunter of the church. When transformed, it combines with its sheath to form a greatsword.
It exhibits several departures from the workshop's design, suggesting that the Church anticipated much larger inhuman beasts.



It consists of a longsword that, when transformed, combines with its sheath to form what is by all rights a Greatsword.

Its Longsword mode possesses the same moveset as the Kirkhammer's Longsword mode, with the exception of possessing a much larger blade. The similarities increase with the Kirkhammer as its greatsword mode deals great damage-albeit less than the Kirkhammer's Great Hammer mode-but in a much more fluid combo, and without wasting as much stamina.

Additionally, Ludwig's Holy Blade is a Church weapon and is, therefore, a righteous weapon. It has a 50% damage boost against enemies vulnerable to righteous weapons which is active both in primary and secondary modes.


  • This weapon deals 50% Righteous Damage in both modes.
  • When compared to the Kirkhammer, this weapon is more fitted to "Quality" builds.
  • It has excellent Arcane scaling, and as such can be infused with elemental Blood Gems for great effect if players are going for high Arcane investment. And since it deals righteous damage, infusing it with Bolt will deal even more damage to the residents of Cainhurst.
  • Infusing it with Fire Blood Gemstone will be helpful since most enemies in Bloodborne are vulnerable to fire.


  • It is a weapon based on Ludwig's own personal weapon, the Holy Moonlight Sword.
  • The silver sword used is identical to the silver sword of Kirkhammer. However, the latter is slightly shorter, as the Kirkhammer itself is shorter. They also possess the exact same moveset in the longsword mode.
