These are the best bows in Far Cry 6.

There aren't as many options of bows in Far Cry 6 as there are firearms, but the few options in the game still prove to be strong choices when confronting enemies. There are two common styles of bow, the recurve and compound bows, each with a unique variation available. There is also La Clavadora, a resolver weapon that functions similarly to a crossbow. It is excluded from this list, but players should still give it a try because it is one of the most satisfying weapons in the game to use.

The Best Bows in Far Cry 6

The compound bow is the best option for players who want to customize their own bow because unique weapons cannot be customized at workbenches. It is slower to fire than the recurve bow, but the extra damage and range more than makeup for this fact. The compound bow can be unlocked for purchase by upgrading a Guerilla Garrison to the second level.

The Bullseye is the unique variation of the compound bow. It isn't customizable, but the modifications it comes with are well thought out and very effective. The Bullseye comes equipped with precision arrows, a crosshair sight, the high-ground supremo mod, and the headshot supremo mod.

El Capirote is the unique variation of the recurve bow in Far Cry 6. It has decent stats and comes with the precision arrows mod, a reflex sight, and the Beastmaster mod that makes the weapon more effective against animals. The main reason El Capirote is so powerful though is that it can be obtained fairly early into the game by building a hunting lodge at a guerilla outpost.
