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 Arrows. When firing anything other than the metal arrows however, the Compound Bow actually deals less damage than a Crossbow. Since torpor gain from 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.
Players have to pull the arrow around 90% back way to get the maximum damage output. The actual maximum damage output requires players to shoot more rapidly and consume more arrows. Additionally, overpulling the arrow shakes the screen, which would cause a decrease in accuracy.
Incredibly useful for pvp and for killing magmasaurs and karkinos since they take reduced damage from firearms and the compound bow is not a firearm.
