Spawning the Bell Bearing Hunter: Methods and Tips for Encounters


Bell bearing hunter is a mini-boss in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice that drops useful items and upgrades. However, it’s not always easy to find this elusive enemy. In this blog post, we’ll go over how to get the bell-bearing hunter to spawn.

Where to Find the Bell-Bearing Hunter

The bell-bearing hunter can be found in Ashina Castle after you defeat Genichiro Ashina. Specifically, he can be found in a room located behind a closed door on the Upper Tower – Antechamber idol. This door will only open if you have acquired either the Mortal Blade or Aromatic Flower item.

How to Get Aromatic Flower Item

To get the Aromatic Flower item required for opening the door leading to bell-bearing hunter’s location, travel back to Hirata Estate and beat Lady Butterfly boss fight. On your way down from her arena look for an old woman standing near bamboo trees with whom you must speak twice then rest at an idol again before returning; she will give you an incense burner which should then be taken back up onto upper tower antechamber where there’s another NPC waiting by stairs who asks about its fragrance – hand him over said object and voila! The way opens up!

Bell-Bearing Hunter Fight Tips

When fighting against Bell Bearing Hunter, make sure that you keep your distance away from him as he has some powerful moves that can quickly deplete your health bar if you’re too close. He wields dual swords so parrying his attacks may prove difficult; Instead try using shurikens followed by jumping counter-attacks when he throws his smoke bombs (Hazy Mist Raven) skill during one of these phases since it leaves him vulnerable for enough time allowing quick jabs here-and-there followed by jumps/deflects until he’s no more.


Getting the bell-bearing hunter to spawn can be a tricky task, but following these tips should make it much easier for you. Remember that this mini-boss drops valuable items and upgrades, so don’t miss out on this opportunity to improve your character in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice!
