The Cupid's Bow is a Sniper weapon introduced in the 10.1.0 update.

Appearance

It is a bow with a little bit of colors on it, and heart-shaped tips on each end of the bow. Also, a heart-tipped arrow.

Strategy

It has low damage, medium rate of fire, very low capacity, and average mobility.

Tips

  • Be stealthy with this weapon since it has area damage, which can reveal where you are.
  • Use this weapon from long ranges.
  • Time your shots as reloading leaves you vulnerable.
  • Pick off weakened targets with this weapon due to its poor damage.

Counters

  • Watch where the arrows come from, as it gives the location of the user.
  • It doesn't pose much threat as it has low damage. But avoid its users if you are severely wounded and/or weakened armor.
  • Don't stop dodging, jumping and killing at the same time.

Weapon Setups

Due to the area damage, and the lack of a scope, it works well for a close-medium range weapon. Pair it with it with a shotgun or any other Primary/Backup weapon.

History

In the age of modern Cubic technologies Cupid doesn't use a bow in his daily life anymore - it is completely impractical. He hang it on the wall though, as it reminds him of sweet o' days of his youth.
