The compound bow is a weapon in the Fallout 76 update Wastelanders.

Characteristics

A sturdy compound bow with wooden limbs. Compared to the bow, the compound bow has higher base damage with a slightly longer attack delay and longer time to fully draw. As with all bows, the compound bow is equipped with a hidden silencer in the game files, granting it sneak attack functionality similar to that of a suppressor. The compound bow cannot be equipped while wearing power armor.
