Animation of the Iron Bow.

The Iron Bow is a low tier bow crafted using Iron Bars. It is slightly stronger than the Copper Bow and Tin Bow. Its sole purpose is to fire arrows from a distance to deal damage to enemies. Its alternate ore counterpart is the Lead Bow.

Its best modifier is Demonic, as it does not have any knockback and thus cannot get modifiers that affect it. (Old-gen console and 3DS versions) It can also get the Deadly modifier, which, while the Demonic modifier may provide the greatest damage per hit, grants a higher increase to the overall DPS.

  • It would be more practical to get Ebonwood Bow or Shadewood Bow as their stats are the same as the Iron Bow but can be acquired much earlier in the game.
