The Boom Bow coming to Stw with the v9.30 Patch Update. There are some Boom Bow traits and tips.
High Damage Against Structures & Players
The explosive damage of the Boom Bow really amps up its overall damage. The damage could easily bring down structures and players alike with precise shots.
Explodes After Being Shot
Arrows from the Boom Bow are equipped with an explosive end that will set off after a while of being shot. It's also quite possible for the arrows to explode upon contant.
Has Bullet Drop & Travel Time
Similar to the crossbows in the game, the Boom Bow suffers from bullet drop off and travel time, requiring players to lead and predict their shots. The farther away its target is, the long the travel time will be.
Faster Bullet Speed & Straight Projectile With Max Charge
The Boom Bow will achieve maximum power after 1.25 seconds of charging. With Max Charge, the weapon can be used instead of long range weapons like sniper rifles.
Great for Sneaky Shots
With its silent shots, the Boom Bow is a great weapon to have when sneaking around and eliminating enemies without their knowledge. Make sure to stay hidden and move around spots so enemies won't be able to pinpoint your location.
Use Explosive Arrows to Shoot Down Base of Structures
The precision of the Boom Bow will allow the player to pinpoint different structural points that will make it easier to bring down a whole stricture. Aim for the base of structures as bringing it down will bring down everything above it.
Have a Short-Range Weapon at Hand
Always have a backup weapon in case an enemy gets too near to you. Submachine Guns and Assault Rifles are a good backup weapon that will accommodate the range limitations of the Boom Bow.
