Ranged? Yes
A recurved bow, crudely crafted from troll-bone and warg hair. The cave orcs' use of archery, so unlike their surface-dwelling cousins, shows the influence of their elvish allies.
This weapon falls into the 'Ranged Weapons' category. It is a two-handed weapon.

Orcbows are an upgrade over shortbows, with more damage, but less accuracy and a higher base delay. They can often be found on orc warriors, as well as centaurs and centaur warriors.
