The Compound Bow is located at the bottom green blip on the western half of the map. Check the yellow circle and the arrow on the GPS in the map image above to see the exact location. Once you reach this spot, you need to use the Shovel to dig the soft ground in front of the car. You'll notice a trapdoor after digging for a while, and this leads to a Maintenance bunker. You'll also find the Katana in a similar bunker on the eastern half of the map.

Go inside the bunker and navigate through the corridor, and enter the first door on your right-hand side. Inside this room, you’ll find another 3D Printer along with the Silencer attachment. Go to the washroom on the left side of the bed to find the Compound Bow. Take the item, and exit the bunker from the same way you came in.
