Crippling Shot is a rogue and warrior talent from the Pinning Shot tree in Dragon Age: Origins.


  • A carefully aimed shot hampers the target's ability to fight by inflicting -10 attack and -10 defense for 20 seconds if it hits, although the shot inflicts only normal damage. The Master Archer talent grants +15 attack while firing the Crippling Shot.
  • Range: 60m.
  • Conjuration time: 1s.
  • 20 additional Threat is supposed to be drawn from the Target. As of Patch 1.02, only damage-based Threat is drawn.


  • Activation base is in Stamina and values vary with fatigue%.
  • The hit can be a critical hit.
  • Crippling Shot's applied penalties do not stack with itself. Subsequent Crippling Shot's will reset the duration.
  • The duration is not scaled by target rank.
