Used for ninjas and ninjas only. This silent beast is enough to kill a player with a coffee can helmet, with a headshot. The side-effect of the Compound Bow, is that it takes some time to charge and whilst charging, you can't move, or it'll drain the charge. Therefore it is most effectively used, by camouflaging yourself among the bushes and trees on the Rust island.
Range of this weapon is more than great at keeping your enemy confused while you execute the holy rain of death. HV arrow will as always damage less, but will hit your target 3x times as fast as the standard arrow.
Did you hear me talk about the rain of death before. Well imagine that, but instead used with fire arrows. Absolute madness, if your looking for traumatizing nakeds out there.
Alternative use of the compound bow, is to use it as a first-hitter. Meaning you begin by shooting your target with the compound bow and finish them off with whatever secondary weapon you have.
Common combinations with the compound bow are:
Compound Bow + Nail Gun, Compound Bow + Shotgun, Compound Bow + Custom SMG- basically any close-quarter quick finishers there are.
It's takes practicing and time to master, but will definitely be worth it. Now ride off archers! You got an adventure waiting out there for you!
