How do you use the bow?!

  1. So this game is astounding yet so damn frustrating. I have been discovering the fast travel locations in the underground of Boston, and there is one in particular that requires you to shoot a barrel. Now, I have a bow, obviously, yet no button actually allows you to shoot it. I shot guns just find during the opening, but this makes no sense. The only buttons that work are B and X and they only sheathe the weapon nothing allows it to shoot and It is enraging me so bad I am about to rage quit and punch the screen. HELP!!!!

  1. Hold RB and use the right stick to select Bow. Look for something to target. When a suitable target is in range (may need to use LT) your secondary weapon icon will light up. Hold Y and release.

  1. As far as explosive barrels go though, you have to shoot them with a pistol. The bow will not cause them to explode. Again just use the RB and then the R stick to equip the gun. If it won't auto-target, then use LT to manually aim. If that still doesn't work, then you don't have a clear shot, and need to find a different angle.
