The Shadow Sling is a very rare slow firing weapon in Horizon Zero Dawn that specializes in lobbing elemental payloads at targets and putting them into vulnerable states. Upon impact, the bombs leave a large area of the element on the ground. Due to its low damage output, it is advisable to use other weapons to follow up attacks on enemies.
