First game

Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade

The Longbow (Japanese: 長弓 Longbow) is a relatively uncommon bow which was introduced in Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade. It is unique among both bows and most weapons in general for its increased range, having the ability to attack foes as far as three spaces away, something no ordinary bows have been able to do since Gaiden. However, in exchange for its improved range, its accuracy tends to be much worse than bows of ordinary range. Prior to Path of Radiance, all bow-wielding classes were able to wield Longbows, but from Path of Radiance onward, the use of Longbows has been has been restricted to the Archer and Sniper classes.

In Radiant Dawn, the Longbow concept is split up into a complete series of three bows of increasing power: the Iron Longbow, the Steel Longbow, and the Silver Longbow.
