Short Bow is a Weapon in Dark Souls 3.
Standard small bow. Its size allows for quick shots.
Arrows must be equipped in order to use bows. Up to two kinds of arrow can be equipped at a time, and these can be switched between as necessary.
Skill: Rapid Fire
Swiftly nocks arrows with finesse after drawing the bow, allowing for consecutive shots.
Notes and Tips:
- Cannot be Infused or Buffed.
- Reinforced with Titanite.
- Quick attacks: Like the Composite Bow, the Short Bow is capable of firing quick-shots by pressing either the right-hand attack button or the right-hand strong attack button immediately after rolling or backstepping, or while sprinting (assuming compatible arrows are equipped in the appropriate slot for the button pressed). Quick-shots of this nature deal less damage than normal shots (around 75% of the damage a normal shot would inflict under the same conditions), but have the same effective range. A quick attack cannot be performed if the player has zero Stamina upon completing the roll/backstep.
- Rapid Fire: The Short Bow's skill will allow the continuous firing of either compatible equipped arrow type until Stamina or arrows are depleted. Arrows are fired at a rate of about 2 per second, but deal about 50% of the damage of a normal shot and have slightly less effective range. Either equipped arrow type can be fired at any point during the volley without affecting the rate of fire. Arrows fired when using this skill have a slightly shorter effective range than normal shots. Rapid Fire can be used with 0 FP, but at an increased Stamina cost per arrow and with the damage dealt reduced even further (around 30% of a normal shot).
Location/Where to Find
- Starting equipment for the Thief.
- Can be bought from Greirat after sending him to scavenge the Undead Settlement.
