How To Get Serpent Arrows In Elden Ring

Serpent Arrows are a useful piece of gear in Elden Ring used to deal heavy poison damage to enemies. When shot with Serpent Bow, it looks like a flying snake.

As a ranged weapon, Serpent Arrows will help massively when dealing with the hardest bosses like Melania, Blade of Miquella. Other than heavy damage, Serpent Arrows also help pierce the armor of the enemies.
