First topic: What's the point of a bow and arrow with explosiove tips?

Just use a grenade launcher. It has greater range, accuracy, faster to shoot, faster rate of fire, smaller and less cumbersome, ammo is smaller, and probably more advantages that I can't think of right now. The bow has coolness factor though. Umm that's about it.

If I had to guess, perhaps for stealth purposes? If you fire in arrow, it will barely make a sound compared to a gun. Then again, maybe it's just for "T3H AW50M3N355" as zero put it.

Have you never seen Rambo?

Yes, I've seen all of the Rambo movies, and I read the original novel, First Blood which was better than the movie despite what Sly fans suggest. I don't know what your point is though, it was as pointless in those movies as it is here.

As for not making a sound... it's an explosive tipped arrow. It explodes with a very loud explosion when it hits. And the time between when the projectile is fired and when it hits is in microseconds so it really doesn't make a difference whether firing it is quiet or not.

^I've never read a novel that was not better than the movie version. Anyways, an explosive arrow is still awesome. They here and see the explosion where it explodes, not where you are. You can still blow up everything without being seen. The bow is still silent. They'll know you are there but won't know where you are.

Oh, what the hell... because in the future regular arrows are not powerful enough to damage soldiers' knees.
