ico_player_weapon_bowBow skill makes you more proficient with bows and arrows, increasing the power of your attacks. Until you reach level 5, you are unable to hold the bow correctly and when firing, the string will flay your forearm, causing injury, unless you are wearing a vambrace or other armguard, in which case firing will only drain Stamina. This Skill has no Perks.

Can be increased by using bows in combat


  • Increasing your skill in bows will reduce the sway when aiming.
  • The longer you hold your arrow drawn, the more your aim will sway.
  • Bowman's Brew will significantly reduce your sway when aiming and allowing you to zoom further.
