The Flarewing Bow is a craftable Hardmode bow. When used, it auto-fires a group of 3 parallel arrows per shot, only consuming one arrow to do so. It converts normal Wooden Arrows into fast obsidian bat projectiles, which inflict Hellfire and swoop in a wide clockwise motion. Obsidian bats home in on enemies after piercing through them once.

Its best modifier is Unreal.
