Game(s)

Guard Bow (Japanese: 遠距離防御の弓 Distant Defense Bow) is an offensive skill in the bow category which debuted in Fire Emblem Heroes. Guard Bow is a skill that grants its wielder additional defenses when fighting against other ranged weapon skill types, allowing its wielder to survive better against fellow ranged attackers.

It can be created from the Assassin's Bow through use of the Weapon Refinery. Notably, the Guard Bow is the only evolved weapon that does not either contain its predecessor's name within its own name in Japanese or share an effect with the weapon it is evolved from.
