Welcome to our PvP builds page for Bow. Here, we provide builds for use in PvP encounters.
Bow PvP Builds
In PvP the Bow is known for its ability to play at any distance and still be capability of some of the highest burst damage out of any weapon. It is easy to use, but it can be challenging to learn how to shoot at a distance. The Bow excels with proper positioning and coordinated shooting. If you can focus on squishy targets, you are sure to have a fun time.
Bow and Rapier
The Bow will always have high damage output. The Rapier allows for a user to play more aggressive because of the plethora of mobility and survivability options at your disposal.
Bow and Hatchet
The Bow is a high damage ranged weapon that will always use its secondary for its support and utility. For those who do not want a high mobility secondary, the Hatchet can be great for surviving bursts of damage from other ranged players, or to survive and break out of crowd-control from melee.
Bow and Spear
The Bow is a high damage ranged weapon that will always use its secondary for its support and utility. For those who do not want a high mobility secondary, the Spear can be a great alternative that provides focused crowd-control and can be used for melee combat to secure kills on targets who are pushing you.
Bow and Greatsword
This can be a combination that offers both ranged and melee burst damage. The Greatsword will also add ways to break out of some crowd-control, and various forms of mobility.
In defensive Wars, some Bow players like to use this weapon while sitting on the walls of Fort. It can be beneficial to rotate between high damage weapon cooldowns. Its gearing is very similar to Bow.
Please refer to our Musket tips for how to use it properly.
