Baldur's Gate Wiki

Slings are ranged weapons that can be used one-handed. They can be used in combination with a shield, but not an off-hand weapon. Enemies using slings are seldom met, leaving merchants as the main source of ammunition.


In Baldur's Gate it has the smallest variety of ammunition, with only three choices of bullet; Bullet, Bullet +1, and Bullet +2. The Enhanced Edition adds a variety of elemental damage dealing bullets.

Baldur's Gate II adds the enchanted Bullet +3 and Bullet +4, as well as the Sunstone Bullet. Throne of Bhaal also adds the Bag of Plenty which supplies an unlimited amount of +1 Bullets, and can be upgraded to supply +2 Bullets .

Slings have existed since the beginning of recorded history. The basic sling consists of a leather or fabric strap with a pouch for holding the missile. The weapon is held by both ends of the strap and twirled around the wielder's head. When top speed is attained, the missile is launched by releasing one of the strap's ends.
