"A small bow used by travelers for protection. It doesn't do a lot of damage, but it can be used to attack foes from a distance."
The Traveler's Bow is a bow found in Breath of the Wild. It has a base power of 5 and is usually wielded by Stalkoblins and Red Bokoblins in and around the Great Plateau area. Its appearance is reminiscent of classic Bows in the Zelda Series, with metal reinforcements in similar locations to older renditions.
With a Base Power of 5, it is only slightly more powerful than the more common Wooden Bow and Boko Bow. Soon after Link gets off the Great Plateau, he will find several Bows that quickly outclass the Traveler's Bow, rendering it obsolete.
