The bow is a ranged weapon that uses its own charges, arrows, to produce damaging projectiles. Unlike most ranged weapons, the bow benefits from a higher fitness stat as drawing the bowstring tires out the user. Most bows are found with roughly 30 arrows.

Characters with the Bow and Arrows perk start with a bow that cannot be dropped and holds up to 30 arrows. This particular perk allows the user to create charges for their bow between looting missions.

Arrows shot by the bow are silent and do not attract much attention. The further away the target is, the more damage the arrows will do. Arrows may even pierce through zombies and bounce off walls like bullets.
