This weapon was used by many generations of arches. Now it is yours. The Bowstring is quite resilient, so you should pull it for a crushing blow (if you do it too much - in your face).

—Weapon's description in Gallery

The Professional Bow is a Sniper weapon introduced in the 16.5.0 update. It can be obtained for a limited time from the Event Chest.

Description

It is a bow that has charge shot. It has good damage, a low fire rate, low capacity, and low mobility.

Appearance

It takes the appearance of a modern compound bow.

It has an orange/grey body with a black bow string, grey cams, an orange grip, a grey arrow sight, and a grey arrow already inserted in the arrow rest.

Performance

This weapon shoots an arrow that can be charged. The more it is charged, the more it deals damage. Moreover, this projectile, which is a wooden arrow with an iron tip, has instant bullet travel time and area damage.

It is a bow, so it uses the single-shot system, therefore, it has no reload animation. Moreover, it has no delay mechanics.

Strategy

Tips

  • It lacks a scope, meaning that one might find it difficult to use the weapon at longer range.
  • Hold the fire button to charge up the shot as it can only be fired when fully charged.
  • Move around while charging up the shot, to avoid getting hit.
  • Make sure you are behind cover or not out in the open when using this weapon.
  • You can hold the charge indefinitely, this is useful when waiting for targets or when the target is out of the line of sight.
  • Do not use it in close ranges, since you will just injure or even kill yourself in the process.
  • The arrows are explosive, therefore it makes it useful for crowd control.
  • Aim at the ground around the user to guarantee a successful hit.
  • One can use the explosive arrows to hit enemies behind cover.
  • Do not spam this weapon. If you spam it, you risk having an entire server and match of people getting angry at you.

Counters

  • Pickoff its users at long range.
  • Bunny hop, in case you encounter its explosions.
  • Area damage weapons and shotguns can quickly finish users off.
  • Strafe around the user while firing to avoid getting hit.
  • Do not try to kill them if you encounter them face-to-face, since its projectiles will be released upon death. Try to flank the user instead.
  • Try to avoid getting into the user's line of sight or general aiming direction.
  • Any sniper weapons can outclass this weapon if they are used correctly.
  • Flank around the user with a shotgun or melee weapon and attack them from behind.
  • Flamethrowers and shotguns can be useful for quickly killing users at close range.
  • Avoid sticking too close to objects such as walls or behind cover due to the explosive arrows.
