Description
Bows are mean and high velocity projectiles are deadly. As you combine the two, you’ll get the Airbow. A powerful, silent, semi-automatic weapon that’ll take out anything you aim at with lethal precision.
The Airbow is a primary weapon in PAYDAY 2. It was added to the game in the h3h3 Character Pack update alongside the Two Handed Great Ruler.

OverviewEdit

The Airbow is a strange addition to the selection of projectile weapons in PAYDAY 2. At first glance, it behaves similarly to most crossbows, being able to shoot damaging bolts that can be retrieved, but its quirk comes in the form of a clip feeding system that allows it to fire multiple shots before needing to reload. It also supports larger sights and scopes in addition to having very clear, albeit unilluminated, iron sights.

Despite it having the currently lowest primary bow damage in the game, the Airbow can still reliably land one-shot kills even on Death Sentence difficulty without much effort. It is, however, not concealable unlike other bows so it is ill suited for dodge/crit or stealth builds.

SummaryEdit

Pros:

  • High damage; a headshot will kill anything below a Bulldozer on any difficulty, and can kill lighter units with a single bodyshot
  • High fire rate relative to its class
  • Clear iron sights
    • In addition, it is able to use Sight modifications unlike similar weapons
  • Clip feeding system allows for rapid follow-up shots
  • Fairly fast reload considering the amount of bolts loaded

Cons:

  • Lowest damage in class for primaries (though still quite high)
  • Projectiles have a noticeable arc
  • Few unique mod options
  • Terrible concealment, even when modded

TipsEdit

  • Due to its terrible concealment, it is best suited for builds where detection risk is not a concern.
