Are you looking to get your hands on a Bow in New World? We've got you covered.

The bow is one of the quintessential tolls of any MMO player. Often, it will serve as their very first ranged weapon, and provide the ability to take out targets from a distance without needing to get too up-close and personal with a potentially hostile opponent. Players who find themselves skilled with the marksman system in New World may be able to take out enemies before they reach them or help support their team from behind the front lines.

Here's how to get a bow in New World.

How to Find the Bow in New World

The quickest and most reliable way to get a bow is by crafting one. Most basic bows can be acquired this way and require very few ingredients to make. Players can craft a bow by interacting with a Forge, Workshop, or at their individual camp.

While the bow is considered a weapon, it does not fall under weaponsmithing. Rather, players can find it under Engineering—the same category as firearms, like muskets. The recipe to make a basic wood bow is:

  • 12x Timber
  • 3x Coarse Leather
  • 2x Linen

Players may also find a bow of variable rarity by looting defeated targets.

Bows are Dexterity weapons, which should not come as a surprise to veteran MMO players. It has two skill trees: Hunter and Skirmisher. As players can probably guess, each tree is suited for its titular profession. Hunter abilities center on dealing damage to targets—whether they're beasts, humanoid, or anything in between. Skirmisher abilities give the player further evasion from their enemies so they can stay in battle for longer.
