How to Obtain:

Quest Cast in Iron from Iron Banner. This is a relatively easy questline to do. Most players should have no problem progressing to unlocking this bow. 


30 Opponents Defeated. The keyword here is defeated; this means that final blows and assists count towards the final goal. 

10 Zones Captured. Control matches consist of dominating lettered areas. Here you have to capture said areas.  

3 Super Defeats: Use your super (preferably one that does area damage) to defeat opponents.  


Complete six matches. Yes, your previously played games in the first step count towards this goal, so you should have this step mostly completed when you tackle it. 

Capture 20. Similarly, this step also counts the ten previous zones you captured. 

25 Hand Cannon Kills. This one's a little trickier since you have to land the final damage and kill your opponent for it to count. So, grab your best hand cannon and get out there to cause some damage. 


Defeat 100 opponents: Between the first and second steps, you should be reasonably advanced towards your goal. Here kill assists also count, so work together, and fight hard. 

30 Zones Captured. Take control of the lettered zones. It might take you a bit, but it is not a complicated process.  

20 Sub-machine gun kills: Kill 20 opponents with sub-machine guns. 


15 Super Kills. Similar to the first step, use area of effect supers to cover more ground. 

Capture 40 Zones. Run around and take those zones! 

15 Fusion Rifle Kills. Like the previous, equip your best fusion rifle and take it to the enemy. 

Once finished, the bow will drop. 


Complete 15 Matches.  Finish up your matches.

How to Obtain: This statue is acquired in the dungeon Shattered Throne. It consists of many steps, but it's worth it.


Once you defeated the first boss (the ogre), follow the doors to the next room and find the statue holding a bow with three ornamental bowls. Present the Awoken Talisman given to you by Petra at the start of the quest. Now proceed to complete the Shattered Throne Dungeon. 


Make your way to the Tangled Shore (Four-Horned Gulch). Follow the bouncing ball (kinda like following the white rabbit) to the mission called "???" Agree and fight Taken; once all bosses are taken out, you acquire three Tokens.  

 3.This process will feel convoluted, but it's pretty straight forward.

Return once again the Dungeon (Shattered Throne). Here you will find strange statues. Almost all these statues have orbs in their hands. Find the three that are lacking these orbs.  

Find an orb and throw it at the statues with no orbs in their hands. This will trigger a boss fight. You need to spawn 3 bosses to cleanse the three Tokens. 

First Statue - Look for the largest building in the area. There will some steps you can jump along the exterior. The first boss is at the top. You should find the first orb in the Dragon Symbol Temple. The fight starts once you place the orb into the statue. 

Second Statue – The area with the narrow beams is what you are looking for; the statue is in that area. Find the orb at the left of the place where ogres spawn.  Good news, no boss fight for this one. This opens the door for the third orb and statue.

Third Statue - Follow the long hall where lots of Thrall spawn, look right and go up the stairs to find the orb. Once you have the orb you will find the statue to the left of the room. Now place the orb to spawn the second boss fight. To beat this ogre, you're going to have to apply boss mechanics. 

The fourth Statue – Is located in the area that looks like an arena with a Wizard floating around. Once you deposit the four orbs the Wizard becomes vulnerable; then, an invisible minotaur will spawn in the area. Find it, kill it to collect the last orb. Deposit it to trigger the previous boss. Kill the ogre to purify the last token. 

 4. Once you have purified all three tokens, you can return to the statue with the bow; all three bowls will be lit up. Talk to the figure and acquire the Wish-Ender.
