Horizon Forbidden West

Berserker Hunter Bow (Rare)

Jarrod Garripoli

Information about the Beserker Hunter Bow in Horizon Forbidden West, including how to obtain it, how to upgrade it, and what the strengths and weaknesses of the Beserker Hunter Bow are.

Beserker Hunter Bow Description

Crafted by the Quen, this mid-range bow can send targets into a frenzy, causing them to turn on each other. It can also be used to direct the attacks of overridden machines.

Where to Get the Beserker Hunter Bow

You will find this weapon inside of a Superior Supply Chest in The Greenhouse facility, which you will visit during the main story quest, Seeds of the Past. When you reach the little camp of Quen during that mission, right before meeting with the important NPC, there will be a chest underneath one of the tents. You will have to pry open the chest with your spear before being able to loot it and find this weapon.

How to Use the Beserker Hunter Bow

The Berserker Hunter Bow is a lesser version of the Marshal Hunter Bow, as it has the same ammo types. As such, if you manage to get that weapon prior to this one, there is no reason to use the Berserker Hunter Bow. Putting that aside, this bow does have the upgraded Hunter Arrows, meaning they will deal more damage and do more Tear. The best part, though, is the Berserk Hunter Arrows, as they can cause the Berserk state on enemies. While afflicted with this, enemies will attack the nearest target, no matter if they are friend or foe, making it great for large groups of machines. The Targeting Hunter Arrows can be nice if you do a lot of overriding; otherwise, they are completely useless.
