- Main article: Weapon Types (Dark Souls III)
Greatbows are a type of weapon in Dark Souls III. They are stronger, have longer range than normal bows, but also weigh more, require more strength and have a considerably lower firerate. Greatbows can only fire greatarrows, and vice versa.
Most smaller enemies and phantoms will be knocked to the ground if they are hit by a shot fired from a greatbow.
Greatbows can be equipped in either the left or right hand weapon slots. Because the player is required to hold the greatbow with both hands to fire, the Strength requirement is effectively only 66% of the displayed value. All greatbows have a zoom feature that allows the user to get a closer look at their aim point. As with normal bows and crossbows, range can be increased by equipping the Hawk Ring.
