When it comes to crafting Bows, they all seem to follow one set path for rarity. Makeshift Bows are always Uncommon rarity, Mechanical Bows are always Rare rarity, and their upgraded versions are always Epic rarity. To craft one, you'll need to start with a Makeshift Bow. The image below provides you a good example of what to look out for while traversing the map.

You'll also need four Mechanical Parts. Mechanical Parts are crafting ingredients that can be harvested from things like Vehicles, Forklifts, and Tractors. Once you have collected a Makeshift Bow and four Mechanical Parts, you'll be ready to craft a Mechanical Bow.
