Bows are a type of weapon in Fortnite: Battle Royale. The purpose of these weapons is mid to long range combat. Bows require Arrow - Ammo Icon - Fortnite.png Arrows to fire, and the Boom Bow requires Ammo Shells - Icon - Fortnite.png Shells.

Functionality

Bows use ammo reserves and deal decent structure damage. Bows also get a targeting arc, like a Throwable Item, showing where the projectile will land. Bows are good for medium to long range combat, excelling at targeting players at distances where Sniper Rifles may struggle. All Bows have a projectile shot, meaning that the arrow does not instantly hit where the player aims. The projectile is affected by gravity. Bows do not have fall-off damage, meaning they deal the same damage up close as they do at any range.
