The Dark Bow is a two-handed ranged weapon used commonly by Ranged Pkers because of its special ability. It is the third most powerful bow, topped only by the two degrading bows: the New crystal bow and the Zaryte bow. It fires two arrows at once and is functional using Bronze through Dragon arrows. It requires a Ranged level of 60 to use.
How to obtain
The Dark Bow is classified as a 'rare' item due to the item either being obtainable through another player, getting as a drop in PvP World (W2) or as a rare drop from a Dark beast. The dark bow cannot be crafted or fletched unlike most other bows.

A player wielding a dark bow
The Dark Bow's special ability, 'Descent on Darkness', fires two arrows at the target which transform into two Black dragon heads, dealing increased damage with both shots. This uses 60% of the Special Ability bar. This is evidently very helpful when PKing because of the increased damage of both of the shots.
There are colored variants of the Dark bow. Colored Dark bows are dropped by Dark beasts only when Dark beasts are a player's current slayer task.
