Bowmasters character guide: All the archers you could ever want

I don't know much about archery in real life, meaning if there's an apocalypse that leaves us having to hunt food without firearms, I won't be much help. But I've always loved archery in comics, movies, and video games, which is one of the reasons I love Bowmasters.

The game's dark humor and silly gore (if there is such a thing) help a lot too. Most of all, I just want to collect all the different characters and put them all through their paces, even if that means they'll all end up dying bloody deaths dozens of times over. C'est la vie, right?

A few new ones were added to the mix in a recent update, meaning there are now more options than ever for your arrow-shooting pleasure. Here's the entire list of Bowmasters in one handy character guide.

Only the most famous archer in literary history. Or a reasonable facsimile, anyway.

But you should see the other guys ...

Weapon: Tomahawk

Kind of like Rambo, but not.

Weapon: Gamepad

Not just a keyboard warrior after all.

I mean, she's telling you up front. Looks a little like a DC Comics character you might know.

Weapon: Chainsaw

He's a lumberjack and he's okay.

Raymonde: queen of the sky (unlock with 5,000 coins)

He sees you when you're sleeping.
