Mechanical bows can further transform into Explosive or Shockwave bows when combines with different types of grenades. While the former requires six explosive grenades, the latter can be successfully created with two Shockwave grenades.

Mechanical Explosive Bows use a targeting system to fire projectiles. When an arrow lands, it creates three explosives that deal 20 damage upon contact. In contrast, the arrow from a Mechanical Shockwave Bow launches the enemy upwards after a short time.

Primal bows can turn into Flame or Stink bows

Instead of Mechanical Parts, you must use Animal Bones to upgrade a Makeshift weapon to a Primal One. These items become easily available by hunting boars, wolves, and chickens.

Primal Bows can further change into Primal Flame bows and Primal Stink bows. Flame Bow is the output of combining a Primal Bow with either a gas can or a firefly jar. On the flip side, you can craft a Stink Bow by combining a Primal Specimen with either a Stink Bag from frogs, or a Stink Flopper.

Primal Stink bows create a small cloud of gas around the opponents, which deals 5 damage per second to HP only. The Flame variant comes with a 2x Headshot Multiplier, and its arrows deal fire damage when they land on flammable objects like a Wooden Wall.
