This sturdy mid-range Oresam bow can deliver shots when overdrawn and has a greater chance of inflicting a Critical Hit.

Where to get the Strongarm Hunter Bow

Location Cost
The Deadfalls, Generous Supply Cache Loot

The Strongarm Hunter Bow can be found in the Rebel Camp The Deadfalls during the second part of the “The Bristlebacks” side quest. To find it, you’ll need to head north after climbing over the fallen tree that you pushed over to get into the camp.

Head north all the way until you find a dusty wooden ramp leading up to a higher platform to your east. Go up the ramp, following the next ramp after, and you should see a wooden wheel to raise/lower the drawbridge. Turn southeast, and follow the path until you reach a Generous Supply Cache next to a large broken pot, open it up to find the weapon.

Best Use

The Strongarm Hunter Bow doesn’t have great stats, but it shines when you take advantage of the Overdraw Perk which increases your damage by 30% when making an Overdraw attack. An Overdraw attack is shown as a blue glimmer on your arrow after charging it up for a little while. On top of that, it has a 5% Critical Hit Chance Perk to make up for its lower base stats, giving you more chances to land a Critical Hit.
