The Open Foe Bonus is a gameplay mechanic in Bloodborne.


Open Foe Bonuses accounts for bonus damage dealt when the target is backstepping, staggering, or missing its attack. This lands for between 20% to around 70% bonus damage. You can tell when you're getting a bonus when blood spurts out of your target. The amount of blood is roughly proportional to the bonus.
