Among other creatures, short bows are wielded by Snapjaw hunter.pngsnapjaw hunters.

Mechanics

Regardless of the type of arrow loaded into the short bow, its penetration will always be 4. Unlike the Compound bow.pngcompound bow, this penetration cannot be increased by the wielder's strength modifier. [1][2]

When it strikes a critical hit, the short bow will instead have a penetration of 6. [3]
