The best way to kill bears in Icarus is not with melee, as bears will often come out on top in close-range combat. Instead, you will need to focus on ranged attacks to kill bears. Start by learning how to craft a bow by visiting the research tree. You can find the research tech tree by hitting the I key and then clicking Tech Tree.
Under the Tech Tree option, you will be able to use points you gain as you level up to unlock new items. One of these items is the bow and stone arrows, and you will need both unlocked to kill bears in Icarus.
So start by earning XP by gathering and harvesting resources to level up. Level up at least once or twice, and you will be able to use the points you earn to unlock both bows and arrows. To unlock both items, head back by to the Tech Tree. In the Tech Tree option, locate both bows and arrows, click on them, and you will unlock both items.
Once unlocked, you will be able to craft both items by heading to the crafting tab to the left of your options in your inventory. Under crafting, you can craft both the bow and arrows with the following resources.
