Predator Bow's shot pattern

A very powerful and unique bow that fires 5 shots, 3 of which are aimed forwards like normal bows, and 2 which shoot backwards. Assuming that 3 out of 5 shots hit its target, this bow will outdamage the Bow of the Void until about 15 DEF, and even surpass the T14 Bow of Deep Enchantment at 0 DEF (dropping off quickly). Hitting all 5 of the shots possesses one of the highest damage models in the game.

However, this bow suffers a heavy drawback in range; hitting all 3 forward-firing shots has a range of about 2.8 tiles, nearly a tile less than tiered swords and 3-shot tiered bows. Hitting all 5 requires standing directly on top of the target.

Nevertheless, the Predator Bow occupies an entirely unique niche as the Staff of Extreme Prejudice for bow classes. Even if you only even use the front shots, it can be stronger than other bows, and the backwards-firing shots can help with rushing or clearing.

Before Patch X.33.1.0 (May 2020), this item had a Feed Power of 500.

Before Exalt Version (Nov 2020), this item had a damage of 95-140 and an arc gap of 175 degrees.
