They provide great assistance – one lets you speed up your dodges, another heals your allies in battle, etc. When you collect all nine of them, you’ll unlock the golden trophy Hunter’s Craft. In this guide, we’ll show you the locations of all the Special Hunter Tools, as well as their stats.

They are scattered throughout different areas, most of them hidden in hard to reach places. Some of them are in optional zones you can completely miss while still finishing the game. We’re going to list them in the same order we got them in.

Here’s a video guide showing locations of all Special Hunter Tools, but screenshot guide bellow has full walkthroughs and explanations how to find them all:

Old Hunter Bone Location

The Old Hunter Bone requires 15 Arcane to use. When activated, it will use up 6 bullets and greatly increase your dodging speed.

The bone is located in a secret area called Abandoned Old Workshop. To get there, you must defeat the Blood-starved Beast, then go to Cathedral Ward. Use the door on the right to get to the Healing Church Workshop. Go right and jump down to find the entrance. You need to walk slowly to the left, into the abyss, to drop onto a platform with the door. Go through the door – the Old Hunter Bone is in a grave next to the back entrance to the house.

Detailed guide: Abandoned Old Workshop.

Augur Of Ebrietas Location

The Augur of Ebrietas can be used if you have 18 Arcane and 1 bullet at your disposal. It makes you shoot a bunch of snakes out of your palm, dealing high damage to the targeted enemy.

The augur can be found on the lower floor of the Lecture Building. To get there, you’ll need the Tonsil Stone from an NPC in the Forbidden Woods first. She lives in the hut next to the village. Then, you need to go to Cathedral Ward, and take the last turn right before the building Vicar Amelia is in. Follow the path off the cliff, into the chapel with a sacrificial bowl in the middle. Try to open the door opposite the entrance. A giant hand will reach down, grab you and kill you. If you have the Tonsil Stone, you’ll awaken at the Lecture building. If you don’t you’ll end up in Cathedral Ward again.

There are two large lecture halls on the lower floor. Once you enter the hallway, you need to go through the first door on the left. Once inside the lecture hall, you’ll see a dead body sitting behind a desk – take the Lecture Hall Key from him. Now go back to the hallway, and go to the opposite side, using the key to enter the other lecture hall. Once inside, go into the side room. The Augur Of Ebrietas is inside the chest.

Messenger’s Gift Location

If you have 10 Arcane and a bullet, The Messenger’s Gift can briefly transform you into a Messenger. While this is useless when you play by yourself, it’s a great camouflage for PvP.

Go down the stairs and open the door on the other side using the Orphanage Key. Go left, up the stairs, across the bridge. When you enter the garden, you’ll have to fight Celestial Emissary.
