I installed Windows 8 alongside Archlinux, so I need to restore my bootloader. I've downloaded the recent image of Arch, made it onto a bootable usb pen drive and booted it without any problems. However, I can't seem to find the arch-chroot binaries (and manually chroot-ing into /mnt after mounting everything fails because bash is not found).
Am I doing something wrong or is the wiki out of date?

You're doing something wrong.
Download latest iso and use dd to write it to usb and verify md5 on iso and usb.
Edit: Normally I roll my own iso with archiso, but to be absolutelly sure on my answer to you, then i've just downloaded latest official iso and tested in a vm, and as expected, arch-chroot is present and working fine.

dd worked fine, thanks. Previously, I tried creating the usb stick with Linux Live USB Creator (which, according to archwiki, fails) but the "Universal USB Installer" which - according to the wiki - should have worked fine also failed.
