Animation of the Wooden Bow.

The Wooden Bow is the weakest bow in the game, dealing 4 base damage plus the damage of the arrow being fired. It is very cheap to make, and is therefore usually the first ranged weapon a player will acquire.

Its best modifier is Demonic, as it does not have any knockback and thus cannot get modifiers that affect it. (Old-gen console and 3DS versions) It can also get the Deadly modifier, which, while the Demonic modifier may provide the greatest damage per hit, grants a higher increase to the overall DPS.

  • Due to the low cost and ease of amassing large amounts of Wood, it may be a good idea to craft Wooden Bows until one has the Demonic modifier. In this way the Wooden Bows are superior to base ore bows.
  • On the first night, a Wooden Bow is a good way to keep Zombies and Demon Eyes at bay, rather than a Wooden Sword which requires getting up close.
