Argonian Bow Concept by The-Argonian Argonian Bow Concept by The-Argonian
The advent of the Argonian crossbow did not, as some had anticipated, render the use of bows in Black Marsh entirely obsolete. Some skilled archers still prefer traditional bows for use in combat because of their increased reloading speed. As with other Argonian weapons, this bow is made of malachite and ebony.

Hey noga my argonian friend its been a long time since I checked back here. A while ago my argonian save got deleted on Skyrim so I got pissed off and quit being an argonian. I made a new argonian though he is a assassin. Anyways nice concept as usual I wish these were in the game.

Many thanks, my friend. I do hope that something as trivial as a game save would not make you lose confidence in our entire species!

True, but there are very few Argonians in Skyrim, so it makes sense that there are no Argonian weapons or armors in the province. Worry not though, I am working on a suprise for my Argonian comrades...

Okay when did argonians develope to tech to make compound bows. They're not that old in reality. I'm not an argonian hater, I actually like them. Just seems to advanced for any race of Nirn.

The Dwarven crossbow is compound. The Argonians studied that mechanism to create this.

They're faster to use than pretty much every crossbow (save your automatic design), and you can hold a lot more arrows in a quiver or two than in a bolt pouch. That, and you don't need to be a body builder to pull back a compound bow in comparison to a crossbow.

True, though the Argonian crossbow does have an auto-drawing mechanism. Still, your points are sound.

Just wait till you have to reload whatever magazine system you've implements. Hopefully you did make the magazine removable.

This is a great design!

This bow looks like a short bow, good for maneuvering in environments like the ones you'd find in Black Marsh. The malachite/ebony mix is a nice detail too.
