In-game description

The Shortbow is a ranged weapon in Minecraft Dungeons that fires one chargeable arrow. It's unique variants are the Mechanical Shortbow and the Purple Storm.





The Shortbow possesses low power, high speed, and a very large ammo supply. The quiver starts with 106 arrows, normal arrow bundles give 53 arrows, supply chest bundles give another 106 arrows, and Surprise Gift bundles give 26 arrows.

Shortbows can be shot immediately for the minimum damage or charged for maximum damage if the ranged attack button is held down. Ranged weapons require the player to have at least one normal arrow or a special arrow from a quiver artifact in their inventory to shoot. Players can also cancel shots by using the melee attack button and releasing the ranged attack button while the melee button is still held.

Damage caused by the arrows can be increased with enchantments, the Stength buff, and certain armors that have ranged damage increases, such as the Hunter's Armor.
