The projectile launched is a very fast arrow. When the arrow lands, it will create a small cloud of gas, which will deal 5 damage per second to HP only (similar to a Stink Bomb).

The risk was calculated... but I'm bad at math.

  • This weapon is very good for getting people out of enclosed structures, as the damage from the gas will force opponents to retreat.
  • The Primal Stink Bow is very useful in The Storm, as it will deal HP damage, possibly eliminating opponents quicker due to the Storm's same effect.
  • Use the bow to finish players that have been knocked out.
