Head straight toward the steps and check the Messengers, who offer your the basic weapons of the game.

There are three different trick weapons and two guns you can choose from:

Name Notes
Saw Cleaver A short saw that flips out to create longer range while remaining one-handed
Hunter Axe A short axe that extends its handle for range, but requires two hands
Threaded Cane A cane that converts into a whip, allowing for wide attacks while remaining one-handed
Hunter Pistol A fast and accurate shot pistol that is great for countering enemies
Hunter Blunderbuss A slow spread shot that doesn't do much damage at range, but allows you to deal with crowds

After arriving in the Hunter’s Dream make sure to pick up your starter weapons.

Make sure to press Options to equip these items before you continue up the steps a bit more to receive the Notebook . You can now check all the remaining Messengers in the Hunter’s Dream to learn the basics on combat and then use the tombstone at the bottom of the main stairs to return to the 1st Floor Sickroom.
