Bows are a weapon type in Battlegrounds.
Bows are decent weapons, but only for very specific purposes. Because they don't have the stopping power of other weapons like Shotguns or the range of Sniper Rifles, bows are best used for single silent shots or desperation shots. Bows don't make much noise, so they're great to use when initially taking on a team, as a good shot or two can take out one member without giving away where you actually are. That being said, try to trade out bows when you can for better ranged weapons unless you're using a very specific defensive strategy.
