The Mechanical Shockwave Bow uses a targeting system to fire projectiles, which need to be charged up to go the optimal distance. The damage is the same regardless of charge. The projectile launched is a very fast arrow. When the arrow lands hits an opponent, they are launched upwards after a short time. It can also launch the player, squad members and opponents, without a direct hit.
The Mechanical Shockwave Bow can be found in Chests.

- Like all Shockwave based items, it can be used to launch opponents into The Storm. This is especially useful during the end of the game, where the storm damage is very high.
- The Mechanical Shockwave Bow can be used to quickly traverse terrain, but its strength is less than that of a Shockwave Grenade, due to the much higher carry capacity for Arrows.
- Update v16.00: The Mechanical Shockwave Bow is introduced in Epic and Legendary rarity. It is part of the new craftable weapons system. The Mechanical Shockwave Bow is vaulted in competitive gamemodes.
- Like Shockwave Grenades, the tips of the arrows for this weapon appear to use Hop Rocks in them. This provides the anti-gravity effect.
