Angel Bow
Type: Bow
Specializes In: Long-range combat
Strengths: Strong homing ability
Weaknesses: Weak melee attacks, slow projectile speed

The Angel Bow, known in Japan as Cupid God Bow, is a Bow in Kid Icarus: Uprising. It is a bow said to be similar to the one used by the god of love. Its projectiles have better homing capabilities than most bows, but they travel slowly and inflict little damage.

Idol description

Based on the god of love, the Angel Bow fires shots that relentlessly pursue their targets. However, they travel slowly and are not particularly powerful. Multiplayer opponents can easily dodge its shots when attacked head-on.
