Glitch Factory’s new bloody and bold action RPG, No Place For Bravery, is filled with visceral hand-to-hand combat that seems to be inspired by Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice’s guard-breaking mechanic. Though, as a wise one once said, “You don’t bring a sword to a bow fight”. The Arbalest Bow is the third main weapon you obtain in No Place For Bravery and is capable of taking down enemies far out of Thorn’s reach, as well as hitting previously unreachable levers necessary to unlock new areas and secrets. If you’re looking to hone your sharpshooting skills, continue reading to learn how to unlock all Arbalest Bow skills in No Place For Bravery.
How To Unlock Weapon Skills in No Place For Bravery
In No Place For Bravery, weapon skills are purchased from any Battle Memorial you interact with. Though, in order to unlock, you’ll first have to collect rare items, usually in the form of tomes or scrolls, scattered around the game’s world. Once you’ve gathered the necessary amount of tomes for a specific skill, you can pay a small gold fee at a Battle Memorial to unlock the skill.
Here’s where you’ll find all the Arbalest Bow skills:
Olon’s Fast Reload — Take Another Second, and You’re Dead x1
Olon’s Fast Reload gets right to the point – it upgrades the speed at which you reload the Bow.
- Take Another Second, and You’re Dead
In the northwestern side of the Outside Ossuary zone lies the Take Another Second, and You’re Dead scroll.
Nolo’s Quick Finger’s — Mastering Ranged Combat x1
Nolo’s Quick Finger’s allows Thorn to shoot the Arbalest Bow at a much faster rate of fire.
- Mastering Ranged Combat
The southeastern room in the Secret Base of the Order contains the Mastering Ranged Combat tome. You’ll need to overcome a tricky battle in order for it to appear.
Quick Bolt — Sketches for Repeating Arbalest x2
Quick Bolt rapidly fires three bolts in quick succession in an almost straight line.
- Sketches for Repeating Arbalest (1)
The very southern tip of the Secret Base of the Order contains the first Sketches for Repeating Arbalest tome. To reach it, you’ll need to survive a couple rooms littered with deadly arrow traps.
- Sketches for Repeating Arbalest (2)
Shortly after reaching Outside Ossuary, you’ll find a body of water with several platforms to jump around. Aim your Bow at the green lever and shoot it to raise an additional platform to reach the second Sketches for Repeating Arbalest scroll.
Heavy Bolt — Bolts to Kill a Dragon x2
Heavy Bolt fires three arrows simultaneously in a conal shape in front of Thorn.
- Bolts to Kill a Dragon (1)
In the southwestern area of Outside Ossuary, you’ll find the first Bolts to Kill a Dragon on the other side of a thick field of brush.
- Bolts to Kill a Dragon (2)
In the southern edge of the Cursed Forest, you’ll find a room with several golden tiles scattered around with phantoms standing upon them. Walk over each phantom to have them congregate in the middle of the room, revealing the second Bolts to Kill a Dragon.
