Where to get Horn Bow in Elden Ring?

Horn Bow can only be looted from a dead body present in the Sifora River region. This bow can’t be obtained otherwise (from bosses or merchants). Sifora River Well is in the eastern region of Limgrave, Mistwood Forest. The exact location of the well is to the East of Minor Erdtree. Use this well to enter the Sifora River.

From the first site of grace in this region, called Sifora Riverbank, turn right to come across a bridge. This bridge leads to Hallowhorn Grounds. Instead of going on the bridge, go to its left side and drop down the ledge. From there, make the jump to reach the platform below the bridge. There is a dead body on the far side of the platform. Interact with it to obtain Horn Bow.
