Disadvantages

  • Low Impact b Impact and Slash b Slash damage – less effective against shields and health.

    • Explosion has 0% status chance.
    • Punch Through is removed, and can not be increased with mods.
  • It's almost impossible to make all 7 arrows hit a single target unless when firing at point blank ranges, minimizing the amount of damage players can do on a single target.

NotesEdit

  • The displayed damage number of 240 in the Arsenal is Artemis Bow's base damage of 160 multiplied by Artemis Bow's innate 1.5x critical multiplier.
  • Firing arrows with a half charge allows players to shoot arrows in a diagonal orientation.
  • Charging shots does not increase arrow flight speed, unless Concentrated Arrow is equipped.
  • Multishot mods apply separately to all seven arrows, meaning it's possible to get a maximum of 18 arrows with Split Chamber and Vigilante Armaments equipped.
  • Hunter Munitions can be utilized to greatly bypass enemy defenses such as Shields and Armor.

TriviaEdit
