      Shoutout to the Dragonrider Bow. Not only can it be obtained very early in a playthrough, but if you Infuse that thing with a Firedrake Stone (Also obtainable early with the Silvercat Ring to survive the drop onto the rubble where the fire lizard area is in the Forest) it becomes even more of a multitool. It will deal 3 kinds of damage with a stellar base that (to me) makes up for the loss of stat scaling. You'll still get the best shortbow damage per arrow even if it is a tad slower. Furthermore; the fire infusion makes your arrows light the tar pits that the Vibe-Check-Vore-Hands hide in within the Gutter / Gulch on fire - killing them outright, and it's generally great for beating a poisoned enemy down if you're going for a full cheese kill.

        Noob question: can bows be used in sniper mode like in ds1 and ds3? I can't figure out how to bring up the crosshairs..
