Where to find the Nodens’ Arc bow

The bow is well hidden, and in fact, developers confirmed that the method we are about to describe is not, in fact, the proper way to unlock this weapon, but it will work.

So, here’s where you need to go to find secret Isu Bow:

  • Head to the region of Northumbria, the northernmost area in Britain.

  • Travel to the lake and swim to that small island.

  • There, you will find a mysterious rock that looks like normal iron ore, but it has some sparkles around it.

  • The bow is hidden inside, but it’s a bit tricky to get it!

  • The rock won't break no matter how much you hit it, but there is a catch.

 How to break the rock and get the secret Isu Bow?

  • Hit the rock a few times with any weapon, until you get some feedback from hitting it.

  • Once you do that, save your game.

  • Load that save.

  • Repeat the cycle of hitting the rock and saving 

  • Do this one or two more times.

As we’ve mentioned above, Ubisoft confirmed that this is not the way they have intended the bow to be acquired, and in fact, there is a proper method in the game to obtain it, but no one has discovered it yet, so for now, this will do.

If you still aren't sure how to get the bow, YouTuber JorRaptor made an excellent guide on how to get to the location and how to perform this method, so you can watch his video as well!
