Hydra Husk is a DLC weapon available in Dragon's Dogma.


"A longbow fashioned from the pliant skin of a Hydra. Especially effective against such monsters."

In Dragon's Dogma this longbow can be purchased as a part of Weapon Pack: The Monster Hunter DLC, and one received for free, then purchased at The Black Cat. In Dark Arisen, this item is only available from, and must be purchased at The Black Cat.

Hydra Husk does greater damage to Hydra and Archydra than a bow of equivalent strength - approximately 2-3 times more damage.

Additionally the Hydra Husk has head severing properties that are an order of magnitude better than any other bow, exceeding that expected even when accounting its damage multiplier.

  • Compared to the best longbow in Dragon's Dogma, the Dragon's Blink, Hydra Husk is at least as good when comparing the two Dragonforged.
