Best Use

The Shock Warrior Bow is best used when fighting any machines that have a weakness to Shock as it’ll stun them for a short while. Warrior Bows have the capability to buildup elemental status effects quicker due to the speed of the bows at a cost of damage. This bow is also useful for Hunting Ground trials.
