Numbing Mist is a consumable item in Bloodborne.


In-Game Description

Throw to create a mist cloud that numbs a hunter's life essence and prevents restoration of HP.
Said to be used by the blood hunters of Cainhurst, its recipe is a secret closely guarded by the line of nobles inhabiting the castle.



Throwing this item will cause it break when hitting a surface, releasing a mist that will prevent foes from healing for about 20/30 seconds. Works also against bosses that heal.

Usually best used against other Hunters.


  • The throwing animation of this item is identical to the Molotov Cocktail and Pebble. As such, it has a very long range if "free-aimed".
  • The mist lingers for a moment, meaning that players will not need to hit the foe directly. If a foe is rushing the player, throwing the flask at the player's feet will leave the mist lingering and as the enemy approaches the player, he will be affected by it.
  • Very useful in the fight against Vicar Amelia.


  • The Bloody Crow of Cainhurst will use this item against the player, he is the only NPC hunter to do so in the game. Ironically, the fight takes place in the Grand Cathedral, the same place where most players used a Numbing Mist against Vicar Amelia.
  • This item is the Bloodborne equivalent of Dark Souls series' Lloyd's Talismans/Undead Hunter Charm, both in use and in visual manifestation. Contrary to Dark Souls however, it seems that this item is produced by those who are not connected to religion. Lloyd's Talismans were produced by Allfather Lloyd, a cleric, whereas Numbing Mists are produced by Cainhurst nobility, who are great enemies of the Healing Church.
