Better Bows Mod 1.12.2 provides players with two new realistic bows and many types of arrows into Minecraft. These bows are quite useful because it not only helps you in combat, but also in mining. Actually, skeletons might spawn a longbow, or a recurve bow if you are lucky enough.

Additionally, the bows are used with the quivers which allow you to nock the arrows quicker and switch between them more conveniently.

Mod Screenshots and Recipes:

When a bow from this mod breaks, it turns into an un-stringed bow which can be pulled back like a normal bow to be re-stringed. Enchantments aren’t lost, but that may change, since enchantments are meant to be expensive.

Better Bows Mod Normal bow: This bow is basically the same as the vanilla bow.

Recurve bow: This bow fires faster arrows than the normal bow, has less durability and takes longer to pull back.

Longbow: The longbow is the longest-range bow in this mod (so far). It fires much faster arrows than the normal bow, has the same durability, and takes much longer to pull back.

Yumi: Has the same durability as the normal bow, higher power/range than the recurve bow, and takes a bit less long to pull back than the longbow. Its stats are basically between the recurve bow and the longbow, except its durability is the same as the longbow and normal bow.

Composite bow: The composite bow is the fastest-firing bow (in rate of fire) of them all. The crafting recipe is (so far) the most complicated, too. To craft it, you’ll need two rotten flesh, a water bottle, a bone, a stick, a piece of leather, and three string. The crafting recipes using all these items are below.

Last but not least, the quiver!

Quivers can hold up to 64 items in 16-sized stacks, to allow you to have multiple types of arrows per quiver.
