Onislayer Greatbow  is a Weapon in Dark Souls 3.



A unique greatbow handed down in an eastern land, where tales are told of its use in slaying giant horned oni.

Drawing a bow of this size takes time, and leaves the user vulnerable. Only specialized great arrows can be fired from the bow.

Skill: Puncturing Arrow
Masterfully fires off a great arrow that pierces through all enemies in its path, inflicting damage.



Notes and Tips:

  • Cannot be Infused or Buffed.
  • Reinforced with Twinkling Titanite.
  • It's range value is 63, making it one of the longest ranged bows in the game.
  • Resembles the Alonne Greatbow from Dark Souls 2.
  • Since bows cannot be used without being 2-handed, the "true" Strength requirement for this weapon is 12.
  • Scaling is weird on this weapon. Str bonus peaks at 27 strength (Note, this means 2 handing at 18 Str is fine), but Dex bonus is all over the place. Peak scaling bonus is reached at 36 Dex then starts softcapping at 40 Dex, afterwards you get mediocre scaling up to ca. 55 Dex, very bad scaling up to ca. 75 Dex, then oddly enough a relatively good scaling up to 99 Dex. The Str scaling from 18-24 is better than the Dex scaling above 40 Dex. If you consider 2 handing, optimal stats are 18 Str 40 Dex.

      I like how it says "If you Consider 2-handing" as if there is any other way to fire a Greatbow, let alone any bow in Dark Souls. you do realize, in order to use a bow or a greatbow, you have to hold it IN BOTH HANDS, right? So 1 hand damage output information is completely uselss... It's a minor detail, but we could at least pretend to be people who have actually played the game if we're going to be updating the games wiki...

      • Useless in boss fights?02 Sep 2016 20:05  

        Good weapon overall. Just dont attempt to use it on boss fights, you will get hit while drawing the bow (regardless of the distance between you and the boss). Use a longbow or crossbow if you need to, instead. Attack speed beats everything in this game when it comes to boss fights after the pontiff.

        • Damage bonus against demon enemies?26 Jun 2016 12:05  

          If this greatbow is used for slaying oni (Japanese for demons or ogres) from afar, I wonder if it does bonus damage against demons, similar to the Black Knight weapons.

            • Which?30 Apr 2016 06:51  

              Which has better AR at +5; Onislayer (194 base) D/B/-/- @ 20/60/-/- or Dragonslayer (220 base) D/C/-/- @ 20/60/-/- ? Or would either be better at 40/40/-/- ?

                It's slow but ***** is it cool looking.<br/><br/>Thing's a Dragonslayer Greatbow for Dex builds. Its good. Load it with Dragonslayer Arrows, stay hidden, and become the gravity to gankers.

                  Samurai are known to wield the katana usually, but they also practiced other kinds of weapons like the kanabo club, the naginata, the Yumi bow, and the flintlock musket if I recall correctly.<br/><br/>This greatbow greatly resembles a Yumi bow. Gonna add this to my samurai cosplay.

                    Step 1: equip obscuring ring. Step 2: drop rubbish or dung pie near cliff. Step 3: shoot them from far enough away to be obscured. Step 4: listen to scream as they fall to their death.

                    • Terrible for pve18 Apr 2016 07:17  

                      Not very good for pve compared to using pharis or longbow, the arrows cost too much. I could do the same damage (500 for a +5 onislayer) with a +10 pharis in two hits and still have a lot of stamina left. It's probably really fun in invasions where you can use the puncturing arts to decimate everyone as a purple.
