This weapon deals primarily Puncture b Puncture damage.



  • Low Impact b Impact and Slash b Slash damage – less effective against shields and health.
  • Arrows have a travel time and a slight arc.
  • Draws from the Sniper Ammo pickup pool, which is among the rarest of the ammunition pickups.
  • Not very convenient charge time, especially at close range.


  • Paris Prime, compared to the Paris:
    • Higher base damage (200.0 vs. 180.0).
      • Higher Puncture damage (160.0 vs. 144.0).
      • Slightly lower Impact damage (5.0 vs. 9.0).
      • Slightly higher Slash damage (35.0 vs. 27.0).
    • Higher critical chance (45.0% vs. 30.0%).
    • Higher status chance (20.0% vs. 10.0%).
    • Additional Madurai Pol Polarity.

Weapon LoadoutsEdit


  • Aim for the head as crit-based weapons benefit extra from headshots due to a bonus multiplier.
  • Use Point Strike to take advantage of Paris Prime's extremely high base critical chance.
    • A level 4 Point Strike provides an extremely high chance of a critical hit with every shot, and is also sufficient enough to boost each charged shot's critical chance to 100%, making every charged shot a critical hit.
    • A maxed Point Strike will, with every charged shot, give a 12.5% chance for red crits.
  • Staying in cover while charging will help to reduce damage taken.
  • Bows are most useful if you can kill the target in one shot, thus it is recommended to have an Orokin Catalyst to super charge the bow.
  • Lead targets both horizontally and vertically at greater distances in order to compensate for projectile travel time.
  • Maintaining a charge at all times can make engaging a group of enemies easier.
    • Charging can be cancelled without releasing the arrow by using the reload button (Press the reload button while holding fire).
      • Doing a melee attack will release the arrow, however.
    • All "charge weapons" (except Angstrum and Opticor) are capable of holding their charge during a sprint.
    • As long as the user starts charging a shot, they are able to finish charging while they are still sprinting.
    • Using elevators and opening co-op doors does not cancel the charge, however hacking consoles and opening lockers will.
    • Sliding when you are about to hit the ground (from any height) is very useful for keeping your charge instead of losing it by rolling.
  • A rank 1 Arrow Mutation is usually more than enough to keep ammo topped off.
  • Use Speed Trigger to increase responsiveness when you get used to charged shots with bows. It is more effective than Fast Hands in terms of increasing DPS.
  • Enemies killed by Bows will be rag-dolled with the corpse acting as a projectile doing the same damage as the weapon. This can be used to kill multiple enemies with one shot.


  • Enemies will notice missed arrows but arrows that kill enemies are silent.
  • As of Update 17.0, you can draw this weapon while on a zipline.
  • Arrows have a large amount of momentum, allowing players to pin enemies to walls. However, a dead body will not lose its momentum if it hits a closed door, so the body will fly through it as soon as the door opens.
