with regards to the increasing accuracy note I found if you hip shoot you can see a notable increase in the crosshair.  Although the accuracy doesn't appear to increase much, I think it actually does increase marginally.

Accessory optional?

Per this entry in the Variant Chart, a Longbow can spawn without an accessory. That is unusual for a Legendary. It is possible that the entry is Gibbed. Dämmerung 16:29, October 17, 2013 (UTC)

I should add that as the Longbow is today's bounty in the Loot Hunt, if ever we're going to see Thermogenic Longbows we'll see them today. So I guess I'll know soon enough whether Longbow can legitimately spawn sans accessory. Dämmerung 16:32, October 17, 2013 (UTC)

I just got one a bit earlier, they do come as a Thermogenic Longbow, I don't know how to link a picture to this but i have a pic

Indeed, and I've tweaked the article accordingly. Thanks for confirming. Dämmerung 17:08, October 17, 2013 (UTC)
