For the Dark Souls II variant, see Alonne Greatbow.

The Onislayer Greatbow is a greatbow in Dark Souls III.

In-Game Description

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.


Located in the Profaned Capital. Can be found when jumping from bridge leading to Yhorm the Giant.


Unlike its Alonne cousin, the Onislayer Greatbow is primarily a Dexterity-scaling greatbow. Two-handed, it requires as little as 12 Strength to wield.

The Onislayer Greatbow is the longest-ranged bow in the game, outclassing even the Black Bow of Pharis. When combined with the Hawk Ring and Onislayer Greatarrows, this gives it extreme range, allowing players to hit targets from very far away with minimal damage falloff. As well, unlike the Dragonslayer Greatbow, it does not require affixing the securing spike prior to firing, allowing players to re-position after drawing an arrow. This, along with its enhanced firing range, makes the Onislayer Greatbow a wonderful tactical weapon, and it can even be used to stealthily snipe at targets in PvP when combined with the Obscuring Ring.




Reinforced with Twinkling Titanite.
