The Bow is a starter weapon all wanderers keep close to shoot afar.
Varying arrow types exist to bring out enhanced utility over long range. Basic arrows deal the same damage as the Sword and Shield, while spike arrows deal much more. Fire arrows can light the path ahead for scouting, and bomb arrows can clear open pathways that would otherwise be blocked, just as a skeleton bomb would do.
To use the bow, hold the off-hand button, then press or hold/release the main-hand button while aiming at the desired target using the right analog stick or your mouse. Certain arrows may require a longer charging-time to be able to shoot them farther than if you were to just tap the main hand button.
You can select arrow types by hovering over the arrow of choice in your inventory, then pressing either UP on the D-PAD, or "3" on your keyboard.
When crafting arrows, using a stick will create 1 arrow, while a bundle will provide you with 4.
