Overview[edit | edit source]

The Compound Bow in ARK: Survival Evolved is an advanced bow and the only bow able to fire armor-piercing Metal Arrow.png Metal Arrows. When firing anything other than the metal arrows however, the Compound Bow actually deals less damage than a Crossbow.png Crossbow. Since torpor gain from Tranq Arrow.png Tranquilizer Arrow scales with damage, it is less efficient for taming as well.

Unlike the wooden pull-back Bow, the Compound Bow has an actual sight.

You need to pull the arrow back all the way to get the maximum damage output.
