  • The attack range is pretty decent.
  • Features great damage output.
  • Focuses on critical damage.
  • Focuses too much on the offense.
  • Lacks defense.
  • Why I Chose This: I chose the following bow build due to its ability to dominate the battlefield from long range with its high damage output.

Primary Archetype

The Hunter class is going to be your primary archetype in this ranged bow build, as you’ll need that marking ability to increase critical damage chance.

As the main weapon in our build depends on critical damage, that marking ability is going to be vital for the overall build in the long run. That is why you should keep the Hunter as your primary archetype. 

Secondary Archetype

I think Gunslinger should be your choice for the secondary archetype, as it also has a certain skill that not only buffs critical damage chance but also strengthens the bow. 

The fire rate and reload speed of your weapon are also enhanced, which can be useful for your secondary weapon as well. In the end, it is that Bulletstorm skill for which you should be choosing the Gunslinger class as your secondary archetype.

Primary Weapon

Base Damage 87
RPS 4.1

Weak Spot Damage Bonus 70%
Critical Chance 5%
Stagger Modifier -15%

Now comes the part that I personally am excited about: the main weapon. Your primary weapon will be the Crescent Moon long gun, which is one of the best bows in Remnant 2. Its primary weapon mod, the Moonlight Barrage, has offensive and defensive capabilities.

  • Make sure to add the Supercharger mutator onto the Crescent Moon for an increase in speed.
  • Additionally, it also makes the critical damage chance for charged shots increase.

Secondary Weapon

Base Damage 110

Weak Spot Damage Bonus +100%
Critical Chance 5%
Stagger Modifier 10%

The Double Barrel handgun is going to be your secondary weapon in this bow build. Since you have ranged damage covered with the Crescent Moon, the Double Barrel will help you become stronger in close-quarters combat. 

Melee Weapon

WEAPON NAME Spectral blade
Damage 53
Critical Hit Chance 8%
Weak Spot Damage 105%
Stagger Modifier -25%
Weapon Mod Whirlwind

The Spectral Blade is one of the strongest melee weapons in Remnant 2, and it is a perfect choice of melee weapon for our bow build. Its default weapon mod, known as the Whirlwind, makes it really easy to crowd-control multiple enemies at once. 


Ankh of Power, an amulet I used in my build, will buff up the damage dealt by 15%. Getting that flat damage increase is not only helpful for the Crescent Moon but also for all of the other weapons in the build, including the secondary firearm and the melee weapon.


Rings Description
Archer’s Crest Buffs the speed of your projectiles from the bow by 20% and also reduces the time required to charge your weapon by 25%.
Stone of Expanse Buffs damage dealt from range by 12%, which is very useful for a bow build.
Zania’s Malice If you end up hitting a weak spot, then it will buff weak spot damage dealt by 10%, and the effect lasts for 7 seconds.
Probability Cord It buffs your critical damage and increases it by 30%.


Traits Description
Untouchable Boosts the evade window by 30%.
Recovery Increases the speed of stamina regeneration by 30/s.
Ammo Reserves Boosts the player’s total ammo reserves by 50%.
Longshot Maximizes the ideal range of your weapon, which is especially useful for bows.
Spirit Using this will increase the generation of mod power by 20%.

This concludes my guide on the Remnant 2 best bow build. I hope that the guide was helpful in making one of the strongest bow builds. While you are at it, also consider reading our guide on all secret items in Remnant 2 Labyrinth
