I can't find a good reason to use the bow for something other than animal hunting. The drop off and projectile travel time gets kind of ridiculous after 50ish meters. It's easier to headshot enemies with a silenced pistol at that distance. Are there situations where you would prefer the bow instead?

Nah I always have to have the bow in FC games, the fact it comes with fire arrows and grenade arrows is a huge factor plus I'm really good at determining at how high I have to aim if I'm far away so it's not an issue really. I'll use the sniper rifle if I want to take out a heavy unit or the enemy keeps moving so the sniper will one shot the normal guys even if you hit them in the body but I prefer the bow.

If you can't aim, ditch the bulls*** scopes & use the default sight.; It is like 10x better than either scope

I beat the game and I've changed my mind about the bow. I love me some incendiary and explosive arrows, and that I can carry all those in one weapon slot is super convenient. Now I always carry the bow with me lol.

Side note, is there an actual difference with the recurve bow? Just picked it up and it feels almost the same, maybe a little faster arrow loading.
