Item-Duping Glitch Makes Bloodborne Way Easier, Kinda Ruins The Game

Item-Duping Glitch Makes Bloodborne Way Easier, Kinda Ruins The Game

There's a ridiculous exploit in Bloodborne that lets you make more of any stackable item. Here's how to do it.

Mind, if you're looking to get the True Bloodborne Experience™, I would suggest steering clear of doing this exploit — it can make things way easier than they're supposed to be.

With that out of the way, the process for duplicating items in Bloodborne is surprisingly simple.

First, you're going to need an alternate character. Doesn't matter what you spec this character or what they look like — just make a new character. Progress this character enough so that they gain access to the first lantern in Central Yharnam, and hop into the Hunter's Dream.

Next, you'll want to go back to your main character. Here, you'll want to empty your storage chest — either take the items with you, or sell them. Whatever works best for you.

Now go back to your alternate character. Buy a pebble — yes, a pebble; I swear this isn't a joke — and store it in your chest. Make sure that the pebble is the only thing stored in the chest of your alternate character.

Swap back to your main character. You want to decide what to dupe. The exploit only works on items that you can have more than one of — so things like weapons can't get duped. But consumables can be duped. This means that you can duplicate items that give you Blood Echoes, the game's main currency/experience points.

Once you've decided what you want to dupe. Put ONE of that item into your storage chest with your main character. Now go to the store at the Hunter's Dream, and buy pebbles. Lots of pebbles. The amount depends on how much you want to dupe the item. The way the exploit works is, it takes any of the extra pebbles you can't carry, and it stores them into your what ever item is is you want to dupe/have stored one of in your chest. So say you're carrying 20 pebbles already — the maximum, meaning that any additional pebbles bought automatically goes to storage. If you buy 10 extra pebbles, you will gain 10 extra duped items in your chest.

Here's a video that shows this part of the process:

As you can see, I start with one Coldblood Dew, and I end up with 10 extra. I only had to spend 100 Echoes for it, and theoretically, I could have acquired way more Dews. But, I was only trying this out for demonstrative purposes — I didn't want to give myself too many Echoes!

Welp, there you have it. This is the sort of thing that will likely get patched out in the future, since previous Souls games have had the same happen with other exploits. But for now, it's in the game, and you can take advantage of it, if you'd like. Try to not get carried away, the beauty of Bloodborne partially lies in the difficulty!


    I think it is funny how some people find this game so hard that they turn to cheating. Thing is though no matter how great your stats are a terrible player will still have the skill of a terrible player.

      Not everyone measures value in how well you play a video game.

        I dont understand

          He is making a statement that addresses your logic on gamers that make certain decisions on how to play a video game in the assumption that it makes them more or less of a person than they really are. To elaborate his subtle indirect insult, some people do not care what and what other people don't do in a video game and there are more important things to do that don't need to involve the mind-set of a pre-mature brain that likes to stroke one's ego.

            One does like to stroke one's ego indeed. Still I dont understand.

    Yeah... No thanks. I'm enjoying clawing my way through one boss/lantern/shortcut at a time.

    Why are you posting how to perform exploits?

    Cheating is for chumps.

    If it's just too difficult for some players then they can utilise this glitch and play through the game. Personally I wouldn't use it though. I play bloodborne (and the souls game) for their difficulty, among other things.

    The game is not even hard, you can easily farm souls and level up. My usual soul run takes like 15-20 minutes and I can level up 3-4 times

      Sure, any game can be easy mode if you over-level yourself.

        Actually, it doesn't matter in this game. Even at high level you can die from the most basic mob.

        What I am saying is there is no need to dupe item, it won't make a difference except nicer number to your stats. No point being high level if you die at even encounter.

    Reminds me slightly of the Demon Souls blood splatter dupe bug. It is what it is, until From Software patches it I guess.

    Hey everybody, there's a ridiculous dupe glitch that makes Bloodborne easy and kinda ruins the game. Here's exactly how to do this thing we're condemning... /snark

      Oh god, so ignorant. Why does it matter how other people enjoy things? Seriously? You realise that not understanding how other people play is a kind of ignorance, right?

    It's the rare candy exploit all over again!

    Look at all the ignorami judging other people's play styles. Wish people were smarter than this.

    Yeah, I'm totally furious and offended that another person would choose to play a game in a way that's easier. Really affects my life. One of those big issues we all should be focussing on, ya know?
