The Bow is a staple weapon in the Zelda series, appearing in the very first game. It’s a more powerful version of the Slingshot with vastly superior range.

When using the Bow, you’ll enter a first-person perspective, where you can aim with the Wii remote/Joy-Con/right stick. You can also hold the A button to charge up the Bow for a stronger attack (dealing 50% more damage) and zoom in.

The main purpose of the Bow is to hit very distant enemies and objects. As you’re adventuring, if you see some far-off Bokoblins, why not shoot them down before they see you? In fact, a charged arrow from the Bow is stronger than the Master Sword!

Similar to the Slingshot, you need ammo to use the bow–in this case, arrows. You can occasionally find arrows from smashing pots, by defeating Bokoblin archers or buying them from the good ol’ Bazaar. By default, you can carry up to 20 arrows.

Where to Find

The Bow is located inside a treasure chest on the Sandship, after sending Scervo down the plank.

Upgrades

You can upgrade the Bow into the Iron Bow.
