The Ranger paused. She was surrounded. The enemy from the front was merely a diversion, the real threats now flanked her from the left and right. They closed silently in the shadows, believing themselves unseen. Seconds ticked slowly by as she waited, wanting them to be complacent, wanting them to believe her vulnerable. As they drew nearer, her bowstring hand slid gently back, the arrow cocked and waiting. Then, in a blur, her weapon came up, the missile rocketing forth, a streak of hissing death. There was a brief pause, and then if by magic, all three foes fell as one, apparently struck by copies of the same arrow. Lowering her bow, the Ranger smirked, and silently thanked her teacher for the hours spent mastering Split Arrow.

Description on the official Path of Exile website [1]

Split Arrow is a ranged attack skill, firing multiple arrows at different targets.

Skill functions and interactions

Additional Projectiles: Like all bow attacks which fire more than one projectile simultaneously, a single enemy cannot be hit by more than one projectile per attack. If multiple arrows are on course to impact any given monster, all but one will ignore that monster and travel past to potentially hit enemies behind the first one encountered.

Arrow Spread: The angular spread of Split Arrow's projectiles can be controlled by aiming closer to or farther away from the player. The spread will be smaller when aiming further away and larger when aiming closer.
