Firestorm Warrior Bow Description

Gifted by the Desert Clan’s commander, this short-range bow fires quick elemental payloads. Can be upgraded to use Shock Arrows and deal extra damage after a successful melee hit.

How to Get the Firestorm Warrior Bow

Location
Complete The Gate of the Vanquished

Once you’ve completed The Eye of the Earth Main Quest you’ll gain access to The Wound in the Sand Side Quest from Jetakka in Arrowhand, then after completion you’ll be able to accept The Gate of the Vanquished Side Quest from the same place which will reward you with the Firestorm Warrior Bow.

How to Use the Firestorm Warrior Bow

The Firestorm Warrior Bow is best used when fighting larger machines that are susceptible to Fire, Acid and Shock Damage. A great way to use this weapon is to start with the Fire Arrows to put a DoT on the Machine, then switch over to Shock Arrows which will temporarily stun the Machine. Finally, use the Acid Arrows to weaken the machine’s armor.
