—Weapon description in the Gallery
The Tactical Bow is a Sniper weapon that was added to Pixel Gun 3D in the 10.0.0 update.
It is a forest-themed compound bow that shoots arrows. It has good damage, a high fire rate, low capacity, and low mobility.
The Tactical Bow resembles the Magic Bow. It has a scope on the left side of the bow and has a forest camouflage.
The player shoots the arrow at a relatively high attack speed. The arrows, which are gray and have a red top, have instant bullet travel time. The Tactical Bow is a precision weapon that can deal large amounts of damage. With its optic sight, it can effectively counter snipers.
This weapon is a bow, so it uses the single-shot system, therefore it has no reload animation. It has input delay however.
- This weapon can be used as a substitute for sniper rifles due to its increased range. In addition to this, the Tactical Bow is silent and shoots fast-moving arrows, which makes this weapon amazingly stealthy.
- This weapon is useful for long-range crowd control, due to its fast reload for a sniper weapon. Just make sure you're hidden.
- This weapon is also very useful for strafing, as the player is able to dash around the battlefield while also being able to take out targets at range.
- Aiming for the head is critical as it can easily take down enemies, as a headshot with the bow deals a high amount of damage.
- While this weapon is effective in long ranges, it lacks in strength so players should aim for enemies' heads
- Users of this weapon can be easily killed with sniper weapons that outmatch it.
- This weapon has a limited range, so try to users of the weapon from very far away.
Have a weapon that has a high fire rate, or a weapon that is effective at close range.
This bow had a max capacity of 49 but that was changed to a max capacity of 41.
It was added to Battle Royale
- The Tactical Bow was added in the 10.0.0 update.
- This is the first bow to feature a scope, which is kind of unrealistic.
- It's likely inspired by modern hunting bows due to it having a modern chassis and a 4x zoom.
- It could also be inspired by the "Sparrow" in Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 as both are modern and futuristic descendants of the bow.
- When running out of ammo, an arrow is still shown, similar to most weapons without reload animations.
- Somewhere along the way, this weapon was given Input delay, something usually only given by devs to weapons which have a potential to have 3catspam possibilities. This implies that the devs view this weapon as a possible 3catspam weapon, which makes sense given it's fast fire rate and decent damage.
