Yesterday the game received its third patch of this season. The patch version 16.30 introduces new mythic and exotic weapons into the game. Epic added the grappling bow with the previous update. Similarly, the updated version 16.30 adds two more bow variants into the game.

The two bows are the exotic unstable bow and the mythic explosive bow. In order to obtain these bows, you will have to visit different NPC’s. The new NPC and DC character, Raven, can be found at Fort Crumpet selling the exotic unstable bow for 500 gold bars. On the other hand, the mythic explosive bow can be obtained by defeating Raz at the spire. This is easier said than done, as Raz possesses 2000 health points.
