7 Days To Die Compound Bow


If you like using a Bow, then you will love the Compound Bow which is the strongest among Bows in 7 Days To Die.  The Compound Bow is a good weapon to take down zombies from medium to long-range using arrows. You can get a Compound Bow by looting, buying it from a Trader or simply crafting it at a workbench.


This is a good weapon of choice in combat for multiple reasons. Since the bow doesn’t make any sound, it is great for taking down enemies in stealth mode. Crouching and attacking will also give you a sneak-attack bonus. 

The Compound Bow uses stone, iron and steel arrow as ammo with Steel Arrows being the most powerful. You choose the ammo type to use by long-pressing on R The Bow needs to be reloaded after every shot. You can do this by pressing R. Since this makes the firing rate slow, you should be careful when using this weapon against multiple enemies in close range.
