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

Overview of the Acid Warrior Bow.

Acid Warrior Bow Description

Designed to deliver quick Acid payloads at close range, this exceptional bow can be upgraded to deliver Frost payloads and extra damage while using Concentration.

How to Get the Acid Warrior Bow

Location Cost
Plainsong Hunter Metal Shards x549, Bristleback Circulator x1

You can purchase the Acid Warrior Bow from the Hunter who has set up camp at Plainsong. You’ll need a Bristleback Circulator which is an uncommon drop from Bristlebacks.

How to Use the Acid Warrior Bow

The Acid Warrior Bow is best used when fighting larger machines that are susceptible to Shock or Acid Damage. A great way to use this weapon is to alternate through the different ammo types, so start with the Shock Arrows to temporarily stun the Machine, then switch over to the Acid Arrows to weaken the armor before using a different weapon with Impact damage to finish it off.
