Far Cry 6 Bows: How to Get Every Bow

Let your arrows fly true with these Far Cry 6 bows.

Every bow in Far Cry 6 has its place, but you don't have to wonder where that place is. All but one of the bows in Far Cry 6 can be obtained through upgrading camps. Only the Bullseye Bow must be obtained through other means, and it can be a bit of a pain.

Let's go over how to get every bow in Far Cry 6, including the elusive Bullseye Bow.

Recurve Bow

The first bow is the Recurve Bow. It’s a basic weapon, which means you can’t do anything with it until you’ve upgraded it. All you have to do to get it is build the Guerilla Garrison at any of your existing camps.

If you’ve got two other facilities already established at a camp, you’ll have to build the Garrison somewhere else, as Far Cry 6 currently won’t let you replace facilities.

The Compound Bow

The Compound Bow is a step up from the Recurve Bow and includes support for mods and attachments. As an upgraded weapon, the Compound Bow deals more damage, but that’s about it as far as special features. 

You’ll get this one for enhancing the Garrison to level two.

El Capriote

El Capriote is the hunter’s friend and does additional damage to animals. It also comes with a scope, but you’ll have to upgrade it to unlock mod support.

Getting this one is simple. Just build the Hunter’s Lodge at a camp, and you’ll receive El Capriote immediately after.

Far Cry 6 Bows: Bullseye Location

Bullseye is the only unique bow in Far Cry 6 and the only one you have to hunt for.

Head to El Este near the western coast, at the spot shown below.

You’ll see a Contraband icon pop up with the weapon symbol as you get closer. 

Bullseye has several unique perks:

  • Precision Arrows: Arrows fly straighter over longer distances.
  • Crosshair Sight: Crosshair bow sight
  • High Ground: Deals higher damage to enemies below you.
  • Headshot Supremo: Headshot kills charge up the Supremo faster
