In Assassin’s Creed Odyssey you can also use a warrior weapon and equip yourself with a hunter’s bow. This type of weapon will be a valuable asset in maintaining a certain distance from opponents with deadly attacks (snakes) or too high a level. The bow is also very practical for infiltration and discretion since some of these damage multiplying skills can defeat an opponent in a single arrow in the head.
The advantage when you handle a bow while hiding in a bush or tall grass, you remain totally invisible to the eyes of the guards around you, even if you get up to aim at what surrounds you in the area. Moreover, the bow is also useful to mark enemies when you can’t use the Ikaros eagle like in caves for example.
At the beginning of the game you will start with a stock of 40 arrows and with ordinary arrows, simple arrows made of olive wood and iron. But you can unlock others, more powerful and elementary ones and of course you can make them at will as long as you have the right materials with you.
