Everything players need to know about the Bocek Bow in Apex Legends Legacy
With the addition of a bow, players must now be aware of the damage output each shot will give out based on how long they hold the fire button with more damage being dealt, the longer the fire button is held. Here are the maximum damage values for the Bocek Bow with both firing modes.
- Headshot (no helmet): 123
- Chest: 70
- Headshot (no helmet): 31
- Chest: 25
Players can use two hop-ups to up their Bocek Bow game, which can be equipped simultaneously and switched up on the fly.
- Fire select to toggle between standard mode and shatter mode. In shatter mode, rounds split into a blast pattern on firing. This hop-up will be equipable to the 30-30 Repeater and the Bocek.
- Deadeye’s Tempo - Firing at the perfect moment increases the fire rate. This can currently be attached to the Sentinel and the Bocek.
In terms of which optics will apply to the Bocek Bow in Apex Legends, here's the full list:
- 1x hcog classic
- 1x holosight
- 2x hcog
- 1x-2x variable
- 3x hcog optic
The Bocek Bow features an exclusive ammo type in the form of arrows which, after shooting, can get lodged in walls or the ground and can be picked up by anyone.
With the silence of the bow and incredibly low projectile drop, it could be a formidable weapon in the hands of skilled players.
