—Weapon's description in Gallery

The Shaman's Bow is a Sniper weapon introduced in the 14.1.0 update.

Description

The Shaman's Bow is a bow that shoots a green arrow with a random effect attribute. It's most commonly used in long ranges. Its damage is moderate, fire rate is decent, capacity is great and mobility is fine.

Appearance

It looks like a jungle-themed bow, with 4 animal teeth on the front of the bow. It has a green drawstring, and a grey bone arrow rest.

The arrow has a green shaft, with purple fetching and a bright green/yellow tip containing poison.

Performance

This weapon shoots a brown arrow with a green tip that is silently shot, has an instant bullet travel time and a random effect attribute (poison, burn and bleed, but in any case, it makes the opponent lose health for a few seconds).

This weapon is a bow so it has no single-shot system. It has an input delay which means that it gets a delay when switched from a weapon that has output delay.

Strategy

This weapon deals high damage and has an average fire-rate for a sniper. Due to the "Random effects" attribute, this weapon can be very useful and handy in weakening enemy players.

Tips

  • Aim for the head to maximize damage output.
  • Try aiming for weakened players.
  • Try using combos by shooting enemies with this weapon first and then use another weapon to finish them off.
  • Take advantage of its Random Effect attribute as its effective for damaging enemies over time, and could potentially kill a target.
  • Like all bows, its shots cannot be heard from a distance, use this as an advantage by picking off users at a distance.
  • This weapon, like most snipers, has no travel time and also does not lose accuracy much, if at all, when the firing button is held down.
  • This weapon can kill in 2-3 body shots, and kill in 1-2 head shots. It's possible to kill with one shot, using the Random Effects attribute.
  • If using the Leader's Drum, it can one shot max armored players no matter where you hit them.
  • This weapon has output delay (it give weapons you switch to delay). Keep that in mind when 3 cat spamming with it.

Counters

  • The Random Effects attribute will very easily tear your armor and annoy you, so try to avoid engaging them at medium ranges.
  • When forced in a close range combat try using a shotgun, or your melee weapon if you don't have any.
  • Try sniping them with a weapon that is more suitable for long ranges.
  • Use your heavy in medium to close range combat to mess them up and confuse them.
  • Do not get fooled by this weapons projectile motion animation, as it's travel-time is instant.
