How to Get Hand Ballista - Elden Ring

It can be  found on the forest lookout tower southwest of the Bridge of Sacrifice.

Hand Ballista

The Hand Ballista is available early in the game and currently there are only two ballista-type weapons in Elden Ring.

The hand ballista is a powerful ranged weapon that can break enemy combat stances.

It automatically reloads after each shot, unlike the crossbow.

When upgraded, the hand ballista does a huge damage increase but does not scale with any stats.

When your build focuses on STR, its a great weapon to have in the early game.
