First game

Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance

The Double Bow (バルフレチェ Valfleche) is the most powerful bow of the Tellius duology, Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance and Radiant Dawn, also appearing in Awakening. Said to be the work of an unidentified master craftsman,[1] it possesses different and unique ranges between its appearances: Path of Radiance and Awakening has it act as a statistically vastly improved Longbow, whereas in Radiant Dawn it instead is capable of attacking both at close range and at a distance, as per crossbows.
