It is a level 90 weapon. Here are more details on the Predator Bow…

Strong Strike: Dealing Cryo DMG to opponents increases this character’s Normal and Charged Attack DMG by 10 percent for six seconds. This effect can have a maximum of two stacks. Additionally, when Aloy equips Predator, attack is increased by 66.
