Currently there are two kinds of bows, which are created in the crafting grid - however, only the hunter has access to the crude bow recipe.
Attacking a mob (ranged combat): Place the bow in an active hotbar slot.
- Charging the Bow: Press and hold right mouse button to charge the bow (nock/draw).
- Aiming the Bow: Aim the white crosshairs at the selected target
- Firing an Arrow: Release the mouse button to fire (loose) the arrow.
Bows are tools and can be placed on a tool rack.
