First game

Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light

The Steel Bow (Japanese: 鋼の弓 Steel Bow) is a common bow which is available in every game of the Fire Emblem series. As one of the steel series of weapons, it is the mid-range bow and is more powerful than the Iron Bow, while still being inferior to the Silver Bow in might, weight, and accuracy. Like almost all bows, it is effective against flying units.
