In addition to the ability to shoot superhuman arrows, hit all the time, one of Hawkeye’s special abilities that few people mention is the ability to use many different types of arrows in an extremely flexible way. When stepping on the big screen in the MCU, the super sniper of the Avengers squad has repeatedly shown his ability to read situations and choose extremely accurate arrows to save himself and his teammates.
That ability was once again demonstrated by Clint Barton in the third episode of the Hawkeye series, which aired on December 1. However, this time, he played the role of director for Kate Bishop to be able to cut the tail of the Tracksuit Mafia criminal organization in a thrilling action and chase scene. And again, we admire the very diverse collection of arrows with all kinds of high-end technology of Clint, all of which are powerful weapons in each specific situation.
A chemical weapon that is quite dangerous and somewhat disgusting. I don’t know if the inside of this arrowhead is a real acid, or a fictional compound extracted by Clint from an alien villain, but their effects and destructive power are really impressive. unique. In the third episode, these arrows are used to shoot down traffic lights (by super-fast corrosion) to stop Clint and Kate’s pursuers.
Lime mortar arrow
This type of arrow is used to impede the movement of the wheel and reduce the enemy’s movement speed, as explained by Clint. Broadly understood, it can probably be used to destroy many different types of mechanical systems, but not really so effectively in hand-to-hand combat.
However, Kate Bishop shot it into the windshield of enemy vehicles, inadvertently obstructing their view and getting into a miserable situation. However, after that, they still easily removed the lime mortar and continued to chase Clint and Kate. This detail shows that Kate is a good marksman as rumored, but she still needs to learn more about tactics to be able to become Hawkeye’s successor in the future.
This is probably Hawkeye’s most dangerous arrow, which he used many times in the Avengers movies, with great destructive power. For example, in The Avengers (2012), when Loki was proud of catching Clint’s arrow, it suddenly exploded in his face, making him unable to react.
That is also the most interesting point of this type of arrow, as it has a certain delay from flying off the bowstring until it hits the target. And in addition to that skill of aiming, the user also needs to know how to align the time properly so that the explosion happens exactly as they want. Fortunately, Kate Bishop successfully used it to destroy a car of the Tracksuit Mafia.
This is also a type of arrow that the audience has seen Clint Barton use in previous film projects, in many different circumstances. Basically, it’s an ordinary arrow with an extra system of wire – a high-class iron hook at the end, used to help Hawkeye swing in the air, or land safely from incredible heights. This superhero’s classic movie scene, when he jumps from the roof of a tall building in The Avengers, with his back to the ground (like the photo above), this type of name was also chosen to use.
And in the 3rd episode of Hawkeye, it was the clincher arrow that was the last card to help Clint and Kate escape the pursuit of the enemy, when both had swung themselves under the bridge and narrowly escaped.
Spider web arrow
This is the type of arrow that when released, a system of super-tough ropes will radiate in many different directions, used to stop the enemy, whether it is human, monster or other means. bulky convenience. Its mechanism of action is quite similar to when Spider-Man Tobey Maguire used spider silk and his body to prevent a train from losing control in Spider-Man 2 (2004).
At first, this type of arrow seems quite useless, because it has no effect in preventing the pursuit of the enemy. However, the strength of the suction arrow is not in the attack, but it is more strategic. The strong suction allows it to stick to many different types of surfaces firmly enough for an adult to grab it and swing around. The suction arrow is a way to help Clint escape in urgent situations, like in episode 3 of the Hawkeye series, when he used it to jump on the roof of a subway train with Kate Bishop.
Pym Particle Arrow
This is probably the type of arrow that brings the most surprises in the 3rd episode of the Hawkeye series. As the name suggests, it contains a lot of pym particles at the tip of the arrow, allowing the target to become super giant, like when Ant-Man transforms to become tall. Clint used this type of arrow to “enchant” another falling arrow to become a massive “heavenly pillar”, blocking the entire movement of the Tracksuit Mafia.
Another type of arrow used by Clint in the Avengers movies. Previously, the super gunner used it to hack into SHIELD’s computer system to mess with the organization’s aircraft carrier controller. However, in episode 3 of Hawkeye, the USB arrow proved to be quite useless, when it was only used to attack 1 soldier of the Tracksuit Mafia and distract the rest.
The smoke arrow has the same function as the lime mortar arrow, especially the creepy purple color. However, this type of smoke arrow has a better effect of obscuring the enemy’s vision. In the Hawkeye series, Kate used it to attack a Mafia Tracksuit vehicle and somewhat caused the opponent to lose control for a short period of time.
