I'm just waiting for this game to go in the nerf circle until it's pure crap. At least I can enjoy it for now.

Sorry for trying to put solutions on the table, either way there is still a large amount of bow nerf style threads being posted almost everyday.

For a while, I thought the Bow was OP.

 

After further experimentation, I've realised it's really not.

 

You know what other weapon is at least as powerful as the Bow? The Hunting Rifle. That also has better precision than the Bow, no need to lead your shots against moving targets, and comes with a scope for long-range shots. Want to know another one? Shorty. There's a SIDEARM that hits just as hard as the Bow, AND it can be silenced.

 

The Semi-Auto fires fast enough that, when compared with the Bow, it has a similar TTK (time to kill). Without missing, the Bow will get a kill less than a half-second faster, but while taking fire from a Semi-Auto or basically any other weapon except the Hunting Rifle, the Bow loses a lot of accuracy. Using the 9mm or Burst Rifle is great for throwing off the aim of someone using a Bow, and the Semi-Auto and Revolver can manage it in the right situations as well.

Do not change anything. If anything is to be changed we need the numbers: usage stats and damage statistics. Anything else is the same hysteria that made uncharted a one-weapon game.

Imo, the bow is very powerful IF you're good with it. I'm pretty good at TLoU (not the best), and sometimes I do great with it, sometimes I go even. I do realize that once I get downed by a random arrow, my first thought is "I'm dead", due to how rapid they can fire the next shot. It's tough, but I don't quite think it's OP. It takes skill. A player should be rewarded for large amounts of skill. The Bow is that mans reward. Semi-Auto handles it up close pretty well though.
Isn't it even a lil more difficult to poke out around corners with the bow? Like, more of your body is exposed?
I say keep EVERYTHING the way it is.
And thank ND for no Blindfire.
