Hunting Bow

An old school weapon for new school fun. Useful for short to medium range combat. Arrows shot have a chance to break when they hit, so be sure to carry more than one arrow. Can use either regular Arrows or High-Velocity Arrows which are able to go farther faster, but do less damage. Best used to hunt animals and other humans.

If you jump at the right time during the initial draw animation you can release while in the air. You can use this from behind cover to expose only a portion of yourself and for only a brief moment. Out of cover you can mix this into your jukes to boost your evasion. Releasing mouse 2 at the start of the draw animation can allow you to sprint for a moment while the bow draws. You'll have to hold mouse 2 again before the animation cancels itself, but that burst of speed can be useful for dodging and pursuing.

Firing an arrow while moving left or right will slightly change the trajectory of the arrow corresponding to which way you are moving.

It's really advisable to exercise your bow shooting skills at special "Bow Aim Train" servers (or combat servers that offer the bow as a choice in training arena's), so that you can hold up for yourself at early game.
Being proficient (and surviving) with the bow is the main way to upgrade your arsenal to guns, and leave bows behind. It can really make or break you during early game, so exercise. If you have what it takes to become what is known as a "bow god", you can even advance further with it during the wipe.

  • If you shoot arrows into most parts of a dead body it will start to bounce around.
  • Sometimes this is useful for looting a body that is just out of reach in a shooting floor.
