Sniper Crossbow is a Weapon in Dark Souls 3.



Long-range heavy crossbow used by Carim snipers.

Its lengthy base makes aiming difficult, and accurate usage requires a trained, dexterous hand.

Skill: Tackle
Lunge into a shoulder tackle, pushing back enemies to create distance.

 

Notes and Tips:

  • Cannot be Infused or Buffed.
  • Reinforced with Titanite.
  • Has the longest range out of all the Crossbows. However, it has a much longer reload and firing animations than the other crossbows.
  • However, when held with both hands firing and reloading is noticeably more quick. 



Location/Where to Find

  • Looted from a corpse at the top of a gatehouse just before the dragons in Lothric Castle.

      This weapon honestly makes me sad. It has such a cool design to it, and I love the idea of just making an invasion build with Obscuring Ring, sniping the host and his posse on occasion with Sniper/Explosive bolts and then attacking them with some quick weapon on decisive ambush points with plunges or corner stabs.
      ...
      So here comes the question. What the ***** happened? Again?
      It was in Dark Souls 1, and was complete trash. Basically unusable unless you wanted to look cool. Then a certain NPC everyone who played Dark Souls 1 should remember made you look like a stupid weeb since he did it ten times cooler.
      And now, after some testing with it against the Arbalest on FAR range shots against static PvE enemies... I just, I just can't.
      It might do up to 5 more damage on extremely long range when using Heavy Bolts when compared to the Arbalest, whilst doing about 30 or 40 points lower close up.
      But okay, its shots do fly a bit further, so its easier to hit... I guess?
      ...
      Lets equip Sniper Bolts, cause we really want to maximize that range right? ANDDD the Arbalest does more damage with slightly more bolt drop whilst also completely outclassing the Sniper Crossbow up close.
      Oh the Sniper Crossbow also loads slower than other crossbows when one-handed? Good. Great. Oh also unit+ heavier than the crossbow that completely outclasses it in pretty much every single way? No that's just fantastic. Kill my dreams why won't you.

      If anyone has actually found a reason to use this thing, please let me know? I'll religiously come back here during Christmas to see if a Miracle has happened.
      ...Maybe the Hawk ring will actually make it better?... Testing.

      Please help? I'm like that sick little boy from that one Christmas movie, but my walking stick is this God forsaken crossbow since I broke my legs running around trying to make it work.

        worst crossbow of the bunch07 May 2016 23:57  

        firing animation is slow as hell, can use it in combat, only outside <br/><br/>the range is fantastic, but with the hawk ring the arbelist easily outclasses this "gun"
