A compound bow.

The Compound Bow is a four-limbed ranged weapon and is the primary armament issued to the tallboys, which they use to fire explosive arrows with incendiary whale oil heads. This weapon grants them exceptional range and power when dispatching foes, as well as a significant blast-radius.

As with all enemies, though Corvo Attano can possess tallboys with his supernatural abilities, he cannot utilize the compound bow in that period. However, he may pick up the compound bow of a fallen tallboy to gain an incendiary bolt.

Trivia[]

  • No explanation is given as to why tallboys drop incendiary bolts upon being defeated, but it is likely a gameplay compromise.
  • At one point during development, Corvo had a longbow but that was scrapped in favor of letting Corvo have access to two pieces of equipment/powers at all times. The compound bows are close to the original design of Corvo's longbow.[1]
