Boom Bow - Weapon Traits

High Damage Against Structures & Players

The explosive damage of the Boom Bow really amps up its overall damage. The damage could easily bring down structures and players alike with precise shots.

Explodes After Being Shot

Has Bullet Drop & Travel Time

Boom Bow Shoot Image

Similar to the crossbows in the game, the Boom Bow suffers from bullet drop off and travel time, requiring players to lead and predict their shots. The farther away its target is, the long the travel time will be.

Faster Bullet Speed & Straight Projectile With Max Charge

The Boom Bow will achieve maximum power after 1.25 seconds of charging. With Max Charge, the weapon can be used instead of long range weapons like sniper rifles.

Boom Bow - Weapon Tips

Great for Sneaky Shots

With its silent shots, the Boom Bow is a great weapon to have when sneaking around and eliminating enemies without their knowledge. Make sure to stay hidden and move around spots so enemies won't be able to pinpoint your location.

Use Explosive Arrows to Shoot Down Base of Structures

The precision of the Boom Bow will allow player to pinpoint different structural points that will make it easier to bring down a whole stricture. Aim for the base of structures as bringing it down will bring down everything above it.

Have a Short-Range Weapon at Hand

Always have a backup weapon in case an enemy gets too near to you. Submachine Guns and Assault Rifles are a good backup weapon that will accommodate the range limitations of the Boom Bow.
