Entangling Shot is a Demon Hunter skill in Diablo III. Compared to Hungering Arrow, it deals more damage, to one target only, but may slow the victim down.


Instead of a normal arrow, it releases a bladed chain that hits for Physical damage. The target and one other random enemy within 10 yards will be slowed down by 60% for 2 seconds, but the second target will suffer no damage. Hitting any enemy with Entangling Shot will refresh the duration of slowdown on all other entangled enemies.

Generates Hatred even if it does not hit anything (but only once per shot).


  • Chain Gang: slows up to 4 enemies (primary target + three others).
  • Shock Collar: damage type changes to Lightning, all tangled enemies take 40% Lightning damage per second.
  • Heavy Burden: damage type changes to Cold. Slow duration increases to 4 seconds.
  • Justice is Served: damage type changes to Fire. Hatred generation increases to 7.
