The Compound Bow is one of the best weapons in Sons of the Forest as, unlike the standard bow, you can deal more damage using the Compound Bow in the game while having better ADS view and stability. The best part is, that the arrows in Sons of the Forest are reusable. So, keep reading our guide as we share the exact location where you can find the Compound Bow in Sons of the Forest while discussing how to access it.

In Sons of the Forest, you can find the Compound Bow beside a corpse inside Maintenance Bunker B, located in the southwest part of the game's map. Obtaining the Compound Bow is not hard once you manage to get inside Maintenance Bunker B. 

However, getting inside is difficult as the entrance is hidden behind a pile of dirt that you can only dig using a Shovel. This is the most challenging part, as to get the Shovel, you need Rebreather and the Rope Gun.

If you already have the Shovel on you, it's good. If not, don't worry, as we have a detailed guide on where to find the Shovel in Sons of the Forest. That being said, once you get your hands on the Shovel, pack some meds and some lethal weapons and head to the location marked in the above screenshot.

Once you reach the dig site, which now serves as a Cannibal Camp, head towards the Golf Cart, and you will see a prompt to use the Shovel. Also, if you find any Cannibals in the camp, you can either kill them or simply move to the said location and dig up the Maintenance Bunker B location.

As you can see in the above screenshot, we were standing right next to the cannibals, and they didn't attack until we did. So you will have enough time to dig up the entrance and head inside. 

Once inside, navigate the flooded living quarters and search the rooms. You will find a plentitude of resources and supplies, along with the Compound Bow and a 3D Printer. 

That concludes our guide on where to find the Compound Bow in Sons of the Forest. For more on Sons of the Forest, keep reading GGRecon.
