—Weapon's description in Gallery
The Magic Bow is a Sniper weapon introduced in the 8.0.0 update.
It is a "pixelated" bow with different shades of orange for the arch of the bow, an arrow with a golden shaft, and fiery particles coming out of the head.
This weapon shoots an arrow with instant bullet travel time. It has no scope, but the arrow projectile can burn an affected opponent, causing them to temporarily lose health.
It is a bow, so it uses the single-shot system, therefore, it has no reload animation. It has an input delay, which gives its own delay on to an output delay weapon.
Formerly, the weapon was capable of shooting an arrow with wall break. It also had infinite capacity, high damage and a very large hitbox.
- Be careful when using this weapon for long periods of time, you may run out of ammunition
- Due to its long-range of fire and great accuracy, the Magic Bow can be used to target opponents from a distance
- Do not stay in one spot while using this weapon, as you will become an easy target for enemies
- Use this weapon in areas where many players will go to, such as the hallway in Pool Party or Silent School
- Do not allow enemies to get too close to you, as it will be more difficult to attack them
- Use the Sniper set (Sniper Mask, Sniper Cape, and Sniper Boots) to make this bow become more efficient.
- Since this weapon has the burning effect, you can try to shoot your opponents with this weapon first and then use another weapon such as the Exterminator to finish them off.
