Bows and Arrows List [The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild]


The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild features Ranged Weapons such as Bows and corresponding Arrow, ammunition that aid Link in defeating the various enemies. This enables him to pierce through the enemy’s defense from a distance.

Bows and Arrows

In The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Link obtains the Bow early in the game. The problem however is that with the onset of the Durability mechanic, Bows are subject to wear and tear and will tend to wear out when used often. To maximize each of its durability, Link has the option of swapping between a handful of Bows stashed in his inventory.


Ranged Weapons in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild consist primarily of Bows. This recurring weapon requires ammunition to be used. In The Legend of Zelda, several arrows of varying elements provide additional effects when used against specific enemy elements. As a Ranged Weapon it allows Link to snipe targets stationed afar, or trigger contraptions to solve certain Shrine mechanisms.

Bows have their individual Attack power, Durability, Range, presence of Multi-shots, and Quick Shot.

This table summarizes the list of Bows obtainable.

  1. Additional damage listed for the elemental arrows is incorrect, flame/ice do and an additional 10 dmg of their respective types, shock does 20 (40 for the electric blast it creates if it hits water or metal) and bombds do 40 explosion dmg and 10 fire dmg as well as 1-15 dmg depending on the distance from the blast

    • Great question! I fell in LOVE with my Phrenic bow from the start!! That range is INSANE for early game! — I can’t remember exactly what dropped it though or what chest I got it from. Possibly from a major chest in a bokoblin camp. I always loved figuring out how to crash through those.

      Cool tip I figured out early:
      Kill the blue slimes (Chuchu’s) that come up out of the ground and pick up their chuchu jelly. Then drop it on a camp fire! It turns into Red Jelly immediately so pick it RIGHT BACK UP and red is explosive! Perfect alternative to Flint if you are out. Set it beside wood; shoot it with an arrow. But ALSO, it makes a great remote incendiary device! Sneak close to a camp of monsters, drop one or two of them, then sneak away from it. Then stand up and get their attention with your bow ready. When they get near the jelly, SHOOT THE JELLY! =)

      (I used that before I even did the bomb trial but it still comes in handy and the red ones SELL for a lot more money especially if you’ve got a lot of them!)

      Drop some in the EDGE of the icy river and turn them WHITE, then when you need to freeze enemies, or food to cool yourself down, shoot a White jelly (but stand WAY BACK)! =)

      Fun with Bows! Rangers/Archers Unite!
