Description[ | ]

The Primitive Bow is an easy-to-craft weapon in 7 Days to Die.

It is a medium-range weapon that fires arrows as Ammunition. A Primitive Bow can be used with five different types of arrows: Stone Arrow, Iron Arrow, Steel Arrow, Flaming Arrow, and Exploding Arrow.

To equip a different type of ammo than the default stone arrows, press and hold R, then select the ammo type you want.

Sneaking attack increases 100% extra damage in A21.

Combat[ | ]

During combat, a Primitive Bow is a powerful medium to long range weapon. At short range, however, the player may have trouble because it requires reloading for each shot.

Due to its slow firing rate, a Primitive Bow should be used with care at short range, against more than one enemy or wild animal.

Bows are great for stealth attacks, as firing an arrow doesn't make a sound and won't alert nearby zombies. Hitting a zombie, without killing it, does alert the zombie.

Notes[ | ]

  • The damages given are based on the values of the different types of arrows that the bow can use. The bow itself (without arrows) can not cause any damage.
  • Aiming slightly above the head usually guarantees a headshot. (this depends on how far away the mob is).
  • Arrows and bolts have a chance to apply a Arrow Critical Bleedout debuff, which drains 1 health per second for 50s.

Tutorial[ | ]

The video below demonstrates how to aim depending on the distance from the target.
