The Wooden Bow can be obtained by Link on the Sandship inside a Treasure Chest that drops after Link defeats the mini-boss LD-002G Scervo. It functions as Link's standard bow and plays a vital role in navigating the Sandship and his battle with Tentalus. Link can upgrade it into the Iron Bow at the Scrap Shop.
- "This wooden bow may not be the most reliable for battling monsters, but it is excellent for hunting small animals."
