Among the cold weapons, the broadsword must be among them. Bows and arrows are no exception. There is a cold weapon that is very similar to bows and arrows. This cold weapon is a slingshot. Slingshot is a game tool. But in the early years, some people used it as a weapon to attack others. Its shape is also small and powerful. It is easy to carry. Slingshots are usually made of branches of trees, in the shape of “Y” and tied with leather bands on both ends, The middle part of the rubber band is tied with a piece of skin wrapped with bullets. The power depends on the tension of the rubber band. The greater the tension of the rubber band, the greater the power of the slingshot. In ancient times, slingshots were mostly used for hunting.
There are similarities and differences between slingshots and bows. First of all, the principle of slingshots is the same as that of bows. They both use the ejection force to launch, but slingshots use bullets, while bows use arrows. Therefore, if they are shot by slingshots, they will not die or be injured. In war, however, in ancient times, most slingshots were used for hunting, because the power of slingshots is much worse than that of bows, Even if it is used for hunting, it can only be used to hunt small animals such as birds and rabbits, not to mention large-scale military operations.
