The Booming Bow is one of the 3 Bows that was introduced as a new type of weapon (at the time of its release), in the Archery Tournament (Update), and can only be obtained by purchasing the said bundle.
Use the Run And Gun or Camping techniques. The weapon itself is an explosive, so it can deal fairly high Damage; similar to the Thumper, the arrow arc down, therefore, for longer shots, aim upward. Also, be careful when using the Run And Gun, as getting too close to an opponent or if shooting to close to yourself while not wearing any Explosive-resistance Armors might kill you.
Weapon Analysis Edit
- High Damage, able to kill most players in one shot.
- As it is silent, it can be used to 'surprise' enemies.
- Excellent Agility.
- Great Accuracy.
- Can be used to kill multiple enemies as it has a big blast radius.
- Fast arrow travelling speed when bow charged to medium, even faster than Thumper.
- Fast reload.
- The Arrows dip down a bit (depending on how long is the charge), so can be used to get interesting shots.
- Needs to be charged to be fired to a long distance.
- Needs constant reloading.
- Can be nerfed by explosive resistance armors.
- If not charged properly, the arrow drops close to feet, thus deal major damage to player, and may result in autokill.
