Hunting Bow

The RUST Hunting Bow is a low-to-medium-damage, semi-accurate low-range bow that is synonymous with very early tier gameplay in RUST until players gain access to workbenches.

The hunting bow has very little in the way of advantage over any other ranged weapon except perhaps its reload speed. Players who practice and develop their hunting bow skills more frequently shine in early-game wipes and gain the upper hand in most wipe day skirmishes.

Hunting bows, unlike their counterparts the Crossbow and Compound Bow, can be easily and quickly crafted with resource nodes that spawn in starting areas.

These bows can also be found inside limited toolboxes and loot crate types, making them the most common bow type in RUST. They are a default blueprint and do not require a workbench to craft. In addition to this, they are compatible with all types of arrows in RUST.
