"Split Chamber" mod on bow
So, I have 2 questions:
1. What exactly "Split chamber" mod does when installing it on weapon?
2. Installing "Split Chamber" mod on bow ("Dread") does it worth? Or this mod works only on rifles?

The split chamber mod adds a chance (15% without any improvements) of firing two projectiles instead of one without any extra cost. So, basically, every time you fire an arrow you have a chance of actually firing two, but only using one in terms of your ammo pool.
In my opinion, it's fairly useless on bows. As the arrow will usually kill the enemy in question instantly. I only find a use for it with automatic weapons where it will create a bullet wall.
However, it's your choice.

Also, bows accept any rifle mod. It CAN be installed and does effect it.

It will work on bows, and unless you never plan to fight enemies above lvl 20, you should use it. You may be able to 1-shot some of the weaker stuff, but once you start fighting enemies in the 50+ area, you'll want a second shot. Add on the Thunderbolt mod, which gives your arrows a chance to explode, and you'll be tearing everything up (since you'll have 2 arrows that can explode instead of one).

so, it's like double arrows with one shot... Cool, then I'll use it. Unfortunately I don't have "Thunderbolt" mod.

It's exactly like that.
Only sometimes though. 15% of the time if you don't upgrade the mod.

Then you've got... Uh... Can't remember what the percentage was for full upgrade.
I'm going to say 90%?
Anyhow. That's very useful then. Most of your shots will be doing rediculous amounts of damage.

Thunderbolt and Splitchamber make it so you can almost have a chance to get an explosive arrow each time.
