Skeleton Wheels, or Bonewheels, are enemies in Dark Souls III.


Almost identical to their previous incarnations throughout the series, Skeleton Wheels are fast, deadly enemies that can swiftly kill unprepared players; however, their level of tracking while rolling has been notoriously diminished and can be easily dodged just by moving around.

  • Three Skeleton Wheels wander halfway along the path that leads to the giant ballista.


Skeleton Wheels are encountered in groups so it is advisable to split them up before engaging in combat. Individually, they are relatively straightforward, but their attacks can shred through stamina and can be fatal if they are able to trap the player. They do have low vitality and should be defeated quickly, especially if other enemies are present.
