Description[edit | edit source]

The Wooden Bow is a craftable weapon in 7 Days to Die. It is a medium-range weapon that fires arrows as Ammunition. A Wooden Bow can be used with four different types of arrows: Arrow, Iron Arrow, Steel Arrow and Flaming Arrow. It is considered as a starter weapon, because the player can craft it right at the beginning of his game and because of its low cost to craft.

To equip a different type of ammo than the default stone arrows, press and hold R, then select the ammo type you want.

Combat[edit | edit source]

During combat, a Wooden Bow is a powerful medium to long range weapon. At short range, however, the player may have trouble because it requires reloading for each shot and therefore has a slow rate of fire. A Wooden Bow of a decent quality level (around 175) can kill most Zombies with one head shot. Due to its slow firing rate, a Wooden Bow should be used with care at short range.

The Wooden Bow can be used for stealth attacks, as firing an arrow doesn't make a sound and won't alert nearby zombies. Hitting a zombie, without killing him, does alert the zombie.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The damages given are based on the maximum and minimum values of the different types of arrows that the bow can use. The bow itself (without arrows) can not cause any damage.
  • Aiming slightly above the head or slightly below the head and to the left usually guarantees a headshot. (this depends on how far away you are from the mob)

Tutorial[edit | edit source]

The video below demonstrates how to aim depending on your distance from the target.
