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 at a very fast rate, although damage dealt appears to be 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.


Not very useful skill overall as it seems arrows deal less damage, making normal shots to deal almost the same amount on a 1:3 ratio. Additionally, enemies tend to start closing-in the distance toward the player once the first arrow connects, potentially making any subsequent shots to miss. 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.
