The Compound Bow is a ranged weapon in Unturned, and it is chambered in arrows. It takes up eight slots in the inventory, and can be equipped in the primary weapon slot. By default, it spawns with the Compound Iron Sights attached and an Arrow loaded, with an internal barrel that silences the weapon. Acceptable hook attachments and magazines must have a caliber ID of 15.

Arrows can only be shot from the Compound Bow while aiming down sights, and cannot be hip-fired. When aiming down sights, recoil is reduced to 25%. Due to the bow being unable to be shot without aiming, this bonus is effectively always active.


The Compound Bow can be found in farms and campgrounds.
