Rapid Fire is a skill in Dark Souls III.

In-Game Description

Swiftly nocks arrows with finesse after drawing the bow, allowing for consecutive shots.


The player gains the ability to shoot arrows consecutively with their bow at a very fast rate, although damage dealt per shot is greatly reduced.

Consumes 4 FP for each arrow fired.


Press and hold the Left Strong Attack button (PlayStation - L2 - 01 / Xbox 360 - Trigger Left - 01), then tap the Right Weak Attack button (PlayStation - R1 - 01 / Xbox 360 - Bumper Right - 01) to shoot each arrow. Can also be used while zooming-in.

Single playerEdit

Not very useful skill overall as each arrow only deals about one third of normal damage. Since enemies tend to start moving once the first arrow connects, subsequent shots can potentially miss if locking-on to them. Still, some players may find it useful to keep certain enemies at bay.

Online gameplayEdit

Could prove useful depending on the player's skill. May take adversaries by surprise since bows are not frequently used during PvP. However, casual players may opt to avoid using them at all on duels.
