Bow of the Sharpshooter
is a relic class
artifact, that is equipped in miscallaneous slot. It is also a combination artifact
, which are only available if Shadow of Death
expansion is installed. In addition to the regular bonuses, the bow removes range and obstacle penalties for the hero's ranged units and allows them to shoot even when next to an enemy. Bow of the Sharpshooter is very similar to Golden Bow
, the difference being that Golden Bow doesn't stop ranged creatures adjacent to enemy creatures from being forced into melee.
