The Artemis Bow is Ivara's signature Exalted Weapon, which can only be used upon activating the ability of the same name. It fires seven arrows at once in a vertical spread, which can be reoriented into a horizontal spread by holding down the fire button.

Refer to the weapon's ability page for a list of mods that affect the weapon.


This weapon deals primarily Puncture b Puncture damage.


  • High Puncture b Puncture damage – effective against armor.
  • Very high critical chance.
  • High status chance.
  • Innate 2.0x critical multiplier.
  • Every shot fires 7 arrows, which can be oriented vertically, horizontally, or diagonally.
    • Arrow damage and status chance are not divided among the arrows.
    • A full charge isn't necessary to deal the weapon's maximum damage.
    • Concentrated Arrow augment replaces the 7 arrows for a single arrow that, on headshots, has increased critical chance and releases a Blast b Blast explosion with a guaranteed Impact b Impact proc.
  • Pinpoint accuracy.
  • Silent.
  • Innate 1 meter punch through.
  • On kill, bodies will follow the arrow that killed them, damaging anyone in their path and pinning the corpse to walls.
  • Does not use ammunition.
  • Can use the bow-exclusive Thunderbolt mod.
  • Innate two Madurai Pol and one Naramon Pol polarities.


  • Low Impact b Impact and Slash b Slash damage – less effective against shields and health.
  • Arrows have a travel time with slight arcing.
  • With Concentrated Arrow augment:
    • Explosion has innate Blast b Blast damage – less effective against Ferrite Armor and Infested Sinew.
    • The single arrow deals the same amount of damage as an individual arrow without the augment.
    • Charge has no effect on damage; only the projectile speed.
    • Explosion has 0% status chance.
    • Punch Through is removed, and can not be increased with mods.
  • It's almost impossible to make all 7 arrows hit a single target unless when firing at point blank ranges, minimizing the amount of damage players can do on a single target.
  • Requires energy to activate and consumes energy per shot.

Weapon LoadoutsEdit


  • The displayed damage number of 240 in the Arsenal is Artemis Bow's base damage of 160 multiplied by Artemis Bow's innate 1.5x critical multiplier.
  • Firing arrows with a half charge allows players to shoot arrows in a diagonal orientation.
  • Charging shots does not increase arrow flight speed, unless Concentrated Arrow is equipped.
  • Multishot mods apply separately to all seven arrows, meaning it's possible to get a maximum of 18 arrows with Split Chamber and Vigilante Armaments equipped.


  • Artemis is a deity from Ancient Greek mythology, most famous for being the goddess of the hunt.
    • One of Artemis' symbols is the bow and arrow.
  • Before the introduction of moddable Exalted Weapons, the stats of the Artemis Bow depended on the mods equipped on the player's Primary weapon.
