The Bocek Compound Bow is a compound bow introduced in Season 9.svg Season 9 that utilizes Arrows.svg Arrows.

Unlike other weapons, the Bocek fires an arrow when the Fire button (default: Left / RT / R2) is released. Holding the button for longer before firing will increase its damage and velocity. Pressing Reload (default: R / X / Square) while charging an arrow will un-nock it without firing.

The Bocek does not have a magazine but instead draws ammo directly from the inventory. Single arrows stick to the environment and can be retrieved to be fired again unless fired with the Shatter Caps.svg Shatter Caps Hop-Up enabled, which causes them to disappear when landing on something. When carrying a Bocek, stuck arrows will automatically be picked up when moving over them, otherwise they can be picked up manually with Interact (default: E / X / Square). If arrows hit an enemy, those arrows will appear in that enemy's Death Box if they die.

Pros and cons[]

  • Very high accuracy.
  • Very high DPS with the Deadeye's Tempo.svg Deadeye's Tempo Hop-Up.
  • Same ADS move speed penalty as SMGs unlike other marksman weapons.
  • Has no magazine, therefore never requiring a reload and allowing consistent damage output.
  • Very ammo efficient despite the small Arrows.svg Arrows max stack size.
  • Can equip two Hop-Ups simultaneously.
  • Missed arrows can be picked up later at the place they landed at and arrows that hit enemies will appear in their Death Boxes after they die.
  • Significantly less audible than any other weapon, allowing the user to potentially score more shots before the enemy realizes where the shots are coming from.
  • Poor close range performance without the Shatter Caps.svg Shatter Caps Hop-Up.
  • Takes a while to fully draw back the bow for maximum damage without the Deadeye's Tempo.svg Deadeye's Tempo Hop-Up.
  • Has no magazine size, therefore requires its respective ammo to be initially used.
  • Cannot equip the 2x-4x Variable AOG.svg 2x-4x Variable AOG optic unlike other marksman weapons.


There are a total of 40 weapon skins for the Bocek Compound Bow: 4 Legendary, 5 Epic, 15 Rare and 16 Common.
