Gameplay Overview

The Great Bow is a moderately powerful ranged weapon that can be purchased, found on enemy tribals, or crafted at any Smithy for 50 wood. In terms of overall stats, it is significantly better than the Short Bow and it could be seen as a slightly lesser equivalent to the Survival Rifle, having the same damage but slightly longer warmup, less accuracy, and slightly shorter range. Still, with its range of 32 cells, it can outrange most weapons in the game and remain somewhat accurate.



As it still does 18 damage per shot, it can inflict some serious damage and be potentially fatal if it hits an organ, and it is also capable of severely damaging a Humanlike spine to the point of incapacitating them, but not to the point of paralysis. If it hits the leg, it can severely hinder movement and a hit to the arm can adversely affect manipulation.
