Bowman is the third Explorer and overall character classification (class) introduced to MapleStory. Bowmen can launch arrows at enemies from a long distance, which allows them to face stronger creatures earlier on and effectively stave off foes no matter their size. However, they are among the classes that have medium health points (HP).
At Level 30, Explorer Bowmen have the unique opportunity of choosing a further specification within their job advancement, consisting of two job branches: Bowmaster and Marksman. Bowmasters wield Bows, and can fire many arrows at enemies at once. Marksmen wield Crossbows, and can deal more damage when firing at enemies from afar. They fire fewer, harder-hitting arrows at enemies compared to Bowmaster.
