The Short Bow is a bow in Dark Souls.

In-Game Description

Small bow. Standard projectile weapon. Equip arrows to use.
Hold bow and press L1 to aim. Aim for heads of humanoid foes. Press L2/R2 to change type of arrows.

AvailabilityEdit

Starting weapon for the Hunter class. A common drop by zombie archers, starting in the Undead Asylum; also sold by the Undead Male Merchant for 1,000 souls in the Undead Burg.

CharacteristicsEdit

While it is the weakest bow in the game, it can be obtained far earlier than others and it is still useful for aggroing distant enemies. It also has a very low strength and dexterity requirement, making it useful for practically any starter class.

UpgradesEdit

Requires: Standard Short Bow, Titanite and 200 souls per upgrade.
