The Primal Stink Bow is a Bow in Fortnite: Battle Royale. It was introduced in Chapter 2: Season 6.


The Primal Stink 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, it will create a small cloud of gas, which will deal 5 damage per second to HP only (similar to a Stink Bomb).


The Primal Stink Bow deals 68 - 72 Damage per shot for 68-72 Damage per Second. It has a headshot multiplier of 2.5x. The Gas produced will deal 5 HP damage per second.

The risk was calculated... but I'm bad at math.
This section outlines a strategy. Feel free to add tips, tricks and general advice about the topic.

  • 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.
  • Use the bow to stop people from resurrecting their knocked teammates.
