The Hunter: Call of the Wild - Archery Guide

This is a guide for al archery beginners and fanatics. I love the art of archery and all the things that come with it, this is why I chose to make a guide for you guys so everyone can enjoy the art of archery.

Other The Hunter: COTW Guides:


Introduction



The art of archery is much harder than using guns. With the bow you need to compensate, the arrows arc and the arrows are effected by wind. Most shots within 20m are most times spot on, from 20 meters and onwards you need to calculate the wind and how it is going to effect it.

The Bows



In theHunter: Call of the Wild there are three Compound bows, the RAZORBACK LITE CB-60, the BEARCLAW LITE CB-60, and the HAWK EDGE CB-70.

RAZORBACK LITE CB-60

The RAZORBACK LITE CB-60 is the first Bow that you can unlock at €6000. It is effective against small game and medium game. It is a great bow but for bigger game I would recommend the HAWK EDGE CB-70.

BEARCLAW LITE CB-60

The BEARCLAW LITE CB-60 is a free DLC that you can download on Steam and it costs €6000. The bow has an tactical skin and better accuracy than the RAZORBACK LITE CB-60. It also weight 0.5kg/1 pound more than the razorback. Like the RAZORBACK LITE CB-60 I would recommend the HAWK EDGE CB-70 for bigger game.

HAWK EDGE CB-70

The HAWK EDGE CB-70 is the most expensive Compound bow, costing €48,000. The bow has 70lb let off and with this it has more power than the other two making it better for bigger game. With the extra power it also gains a flatter trajectory.

The Arrows



There are three types of arrows for different game. The integrity bonus with arrows is important for your total score.

300gr Arrow

This is a lightweight arrow and has the flattest trajectory of the 3. Due to the wide tip it has almost 0 penetration and makes it ineffective against medium/big game.

Recommended animals:

  • Red Fox

420gr Arrow

This is a medium arrow and has a quite flat trajectory. This arrow is effective for almost all the animals in the game.

Recommended animals:

  • Coyote
  • Roe Deer
  • Fallow Deer
  • Blacktail Deer
  • Whitetail Deer
  • Wild Boar
  • Black Bear
  • Red Deer

600gr Arrow

This is a heavy arrow and has a quite steep trajectory in comparison with the other 2. This is the arrow you want to use for big game since it has more mass and thus deeper penetration.

Recommended animals:

  • Roosevelt Elk
  • Moose
  • Bison

The Wind



The wind is one thing that you have to take in account if you are an archer. If you want to calculate the wind I recommend the wind prediction skill (Stalker) and the windage perk (Rifles). Otherwise you can use the particles in the wind and the sound as an indicator. After around 20m the wind is going to have a real effect on the arrow.
