Lightning Bolts are a type of ammunition in Dark Souls III.

In-Game Description

Bolts imbued with lightning created by the giant blacksmith of the gods.
However, the gods never used crossbows.
These bolts are likely artifacts of the dragonless era, when the pact between gods and humans was upheld.



Lightning Bolts inflict lightning damage, dealing additional damage to most enemies, especially those which are weak to this element. Likewise, the additional damage is greatly reduced on enemies resistant to lightning.
