The Tek Bow is a weapon in Genesis: Part 2. It is capable of firing various Arrows, including a new Explosive Arrow.

It can be fueled by Element Shards, which is consumed at varying rates depending on the type of Arrow that is being fired. The Arrow flies faster the longer you charge it up (1 second) and at its highest speed it has the speed of a Bullet.

The type of arrow being fired can be changed by pressing Square on the PS4, X on the Xbox One, or R on the PC version. The type of arrows able to be fired are normal/metal arrows, explosive arrows, tranq arrows, and flame arrows. Double tapping the button to swap arrow types also changes how the arrow flies. There is projectile mode, which fires like a normal projectile arrow, and then there's instant hit mode, where the arrow will instantly hit what the player is aiming at.

While in instant fire mode, it cannot damage structures, but while in projectile mode it can damage structures. However, turrets can target the projectile but not the instant fire.

Record[edit | edit source]

That Federation-issue tek bow makes its own projectiles and shoots 'em with an EM railgun!
I'd think that baby would put a hole through just about anything.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • An outdated Tek Bow model can be found in the DevKit, appearing to be cut content from Ragnarok. This is similar to how the Tek Wyvern Saddle was also cut content from Ragnarok, but is now planned to be reworked into Genesis: Part 2 with the addition of the Voidwyrm.
  • The ability to cycle between ammo is shared with Tek Grenade Launcher Genesis Part 1 Icon.png
  • The Tek Bow can be fired under water.
  • Explosive arrows do full damage to Rock Elementals.
