Assassin’s Creed Valhalla: Guide To All Of The Hunter Bows

A Hunter Bow in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is primarily used for exactly what its name states. It will give you a third-person view, unlike the Predator Bows which give you a first-person look when you go to shoot. They are fairly balanced as they are an in-between of a Light Bow and Predator bow in terms of damage rates and speed.

There are eight Hunter bows in the game for you to choose from if this is the type of bow you prefer to use. One thing to keep in mind is that your skill tree will determine the sway of your stats, so these values might not match what you see in your own game if you do choose to seek out one of these bows.

Hunnish Bow

No searching is required if you want to add this Hunter Bow to your inventory as it is automatically given to Eivor at the beginning of the game.

Its stats might not be great, but it is better to start with something, rather than nothing. It does have a perk that increases ranged damage after hitting a weak point on an enemy, and it’s not too bad at taking down nearby wildlife either.

Stats

  • Attack: 55
  • Stun: 40
  • Head Shot: 57
  • Speed: 40
  • Crit-Pre: 61
  • Weight: 15

Death-Speaker

The Death-Speaker is a Fine Hunter Bow and it can be acquired by speaking to local merchants around the map. It is sold for 360 silver, so it’s not too expensive and is quite an upgrade from your Hunnish Bow.

Its perk is more for advanced bow users as hitting weak points on opponents will restore some of your health. This is often easier said than done which is why other bows on this list might be more suitable for you if your aim isn’t so precise.

Stats

  • Attack: 57
  • Stun: 73
  • Head Shot: 63
  • Speed: 44
  • Crit-Pre: 73
  • Weight: 12

Sagittarius Bow

The Sagittarius Bow can be found during your travels in Jorvik, England, and while it’s not one of the best weapons in the game, it is still pretty great. It is located in the northern part of the town below Multangular Tower. You will have to travel to the very bottom and make your way through the tunnels and various obstacles if you want to retrieve this piece of weaponry.

It does have a perk that increases your speed when hitting weak points, so if your aim is true then this could shoot almost as fast as a Light Bow. The one nice thing about this weapon is that it is already a Superior Hunter Bow, so fewer upgrades are required to make it truly great.

Stats

  • Attack: 69
  • Stun: 65
  • Head Shot: 69
  • Speed: 39
  • Crit-Pre: 66
  • Weight: 14

Arc Of Elan

When you travel to Essexe, you will meet a man during the main story arc named Bristan who is obsessed with hunting. Once this part of the story is completed he will send this bow to you as a gift, so make sure to check the messages in Eivor’s room when you land in Ravensthorpe.

This is arguably one of the best bows in the game due to its stats, as well as its perk. This bow increases ability damage for each successive hit you land on your opponents. It comes in handy when fighting the hardest bosses as it gives you the chance to deal more damage.

Stats

  • Attack: 100
  • Stun: 112
  • Head Shot: 74
  • Speed: 40
  • Crit-Pre: 86
  • Weight: 12

Magyar Hunting Bow

This is a secret weapon that most players don’t know about, but the first step is to upgrade your settlement by building the Hunter’s Hut. You will be able to talk to Wallace about various deliveries where you bring him animal parts in exchange for rewards. Once you have completed all of them then Eivor will be given this bow, which is basically part Hunter Bow and part Light Bow.

Its perk isn’t too bad, especially when paired with the right runes, as it increases stun when hitting weak points, so make sure to hit those golden marks if you decide to equip this beauty.

Stats

  • Attack: 94
  • Stun: 121
  • Head Shot: 90
  • Speed: 47
  • Crit-Pre: 101
  • Weight: 11

Ona:kara Bow

One of the things that you can do in Vinland is to chat with the local traders and offer them ingots, iron ore, and leather in return for items. The Ona:kara Bow is one of these weapons, but unfortunately you can only use it in this region. It also cannot be upgraded so it will forever remain a Superior Hunter Bow.

However, it still has a perk that increases ranged damage when Eivor is almost full health. It is worth it to upgrade your rations before heading to this region and collect from the local bushes after landing to ensure your health is always full.

Stats

  • Attack: 103
  • Stun: 119
  • Head Shot: 75
  • Speed: 40
  • Crit-Pre: 87
  • Weight: 12

Dreka Bow

The Dreka Bow must be bought either in Reda’s Shop for 120 Opals or from the in-game store for 350 Helix Credits. It is one of the many microtransactions players often consider as the stats of this Mythical Hunter Bow are envied by all.

It already comes with three open rune slots, including one for a diamond rune and you can learn how to acquire these with this guide. It is also perfect if you prefer a heavier build as the more your armor and weapons weigh, the greater the amount of ranged damage you will inflict.

Stats

  • Attack: 103
  • Stun: 112
  • Head Shot: 77
  • Speed: 39
  • Crit-Pre: 93
  • Weight: 12

Dokkalfar Bow

The Dokkalfar Bow is a specialty item that can be added to your inventory by purchasing the premium DLC starter pack from the Ubisoft store. It costs $39.90 which might seem a bit expensive but you will also receive other great items such as:

  • 2,300 Helix Credits
  • Iron Wolf Ship Pack
  • Kraken Heavy Shield
  • Royal Sword
  • Tusk Axe

It might not seem worth it for the high price, but it does some insane damage that even predator bows would envy as it is one of the most underrated weapons in the game. It also comes with a perk that increases your critical chance when close to full health.

Stats

  • Attack: 83
  • Stun: 100
  • Head Shot: 77
  • Speed: 41
  • Crit-Pre: 90
  • Weight: 11
