Legendary Bows are available in a bulk in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, but which one is the best for you? In this Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Legendary Bows guide, we have listed some of the best Legendary Bows that you must get. We have listed the best bows for each class: Hunter, Assassin, and Warrior. So let’s get started without wasting any time.
Unlock Best Bows In Assassin’s Creed Odyssey
Below is the best bow available in the game for all three playstyles: Assassin, Hunter, and Warrior.
I am calling it the best bow in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey for one reason: It comes with a Legendary Perk which gives a 50% chance to not Consume Special Arrows. This means you won’t lose all your arrows. How is not losing an arrow is helpful? Well, you’ll be able to make use of your special arrows way more often—as a matter of fact, you’ll be able to use them almost all the time.
How To Unlock Eros’s Bow In Assassin’s Creed Odyssey
You will get Eros’s Bow in a cave in a fort in Messenia. The map location is provided below. The fort is located near Mines of the Great Trench in Messenia. Please note that Messenia is a Level 35-39 region. It is recommended that before entering Messenia, you take your character closer to the required level i.e Level 35-39.
If you are a pro player then you can go and get it earlier. Even though you won’t be able to use the Eros’s Bow until you reach the required level, the thing that will be beneficial is that you will be able to engrave the Legendary Perk on your other bow.
Eros’s Bow Stats
- 15% Hunter Damage
- 15% Adrenaline per Hit
- 50% Chance to not Consume Special Arrows
The best aspect of the Achilles’s Bow is that it comes with a perk that does 20% damage with the Devastating Shot ability. Also, Basic Arrows become Fire Arrows. The Devastating Shot ability is one of the best in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey and is suited for all three playstyles. So who would like to miss out on a bow that offers +20% Damage (Insane it is) with Devastating Shot ability? As a player, I would give first preference to an element that offers me to do more damage to enemies.

Achilles’s Bow will be available from a Mercenary called “The Mercenary Medea The Marksman” at Level 21. Don’t worry if you have passed this level without encountering the mercenary, as the bow can drop at your level, for example, you can get it on Level 22 also.
To encounter The Mercenary Medea The Marksman (there is a possibility that you might encounter a different mercenary) all you have to do is get a high bounty around the early 20s Level and this Mercenary will show up along with his companion, a Lion.
Achilles’s Bow Stats

- +5% CRIT Chance
- +20% Damage with Devastating Shot Ability
- Basic Arrows become Fire Arrows.
The legendary perk that comes with the Vine Bow is not as good as that of the Eros’s Bow, but it is still helpful. +25% Hunter Damage but -15% Armor—means you’ll deal more damage to your enemies, but it will come in exchange for an armor. This deal becomes valid if you take into consideration that in any given scenario you will first dodge enemies with a sudden quick moment and then deal a damage to them. So going for an extra percentage of damage at a cost of an armor looks a good deal.

Hades’s Bow Legendary Perk is an interesting one: all your basic arrows become Fire Arrows. In addition to this, the bow also has a +20% Fire Damage perk, which means you can shoot Fire Arrows at the enemies continously and all those fire arrows will have an additional +20% Fire Damage which will make the burning damage on the enemies stronger.
