I farmed this with Mad Warrior at ~7M soul memory, Lv 220. I used the Unveil method, which some people in the comments incorrectly said doesn't work. It does, but you have to first clear out all the enemies until they don't respawn.
Equip the Bell Keeper's Seal ring.
Get Cleric's Sacred Chime and Unveil (Straid).
Get 13 Faith (alternatively, get 10 Faith and spice Unveil down from Magerold).
Clear out all enemies between the Ironhearth Hall bonfire and the Belfry Sol approach bonfire. This includes the 3 Alonne knights and 1 Ironclad Soldier on the bridge, as well as the 3 Ironclad, 3 Alonne archers, and 3 Alonne knights in the lava pit. After each, hit the bonfire and repeat the process until they stop respawning.
Then from the Belfry Sol Approach bonfire, run the gauntlet and kill the 5 bellkeepers until they stop respawning. You may encounter the Mad Warrior on these runs.
Once there are no more enemies to kill, hit the Belfry Sol Approach bonfire, and put the ladder just to your right (about 1 o'clock as you're looking up). Cast Unveil. If there is no Mad Warrior the Unveil will just go straight up (as it does when there are no enemies present), so hit the bonfire and try again. If the Mad Warrior spawned, Unveil will veer right through the grate/cage behind the ladder. Go and kill him, then Homeward Bone/feather back, hit the bonfire, and repeat.
With this process, I spent a couple hours clearing the room of respawning enemies, then got Hidden Weapon in 30 minutes. Godspeed.
