Bow Corner Shooting

10 replies 341 views Edited Jun 21, 2013
Starting to see a lot of corner shooting from bows, all you can see is the bows arc and out flies an arrow... anyone else see this, or any bow Hunters here doing it?

Do you mean 'corner glitching' (lack of a better term) like CODs head glitching? 

 

Where only a small part of your body shows while you have full view of them

I have seen people doing this with the Hunting Rifle too, also getting perfect headshots within .5 a second of poking out. Although it was 3AM so maybe I was just tired. I haven't seen this with the bow yet though. Thinking of it now, I've seen bow users rapidly decrease in my games. Seems Shorty and Shivs are starting to get some love.

@Twin Snakes, yes. But in this case only party of the bow shows, not even part of the body.

Not had the issue with the bow myself. I am using the bow to try and get a complete 12 weeks so maybe I'm annoying people doing it myself lol

 

I've had it as more of an issue with the Semi Auto

 

Just a remnant of Uncharteds multiplayer i suppose

Lol at people who associate this "trick" to COD. History lesson, it started in Rainbow Six.

Anyways, I think it's the mechanics of the weapon itself. I did that a few times in single player where I know my body was 95% covered but I'd still nail some punk with an arrow. It's not really a glitch, since you can't hug the wall and round the corner but its something to look for. It's only happened to me in intermediate ranges. Most bow players can't hit their target beyond 30m.

Yeah. I see it sometimes happening. Fortunately, there are many ways to flank that person in this game.

Oh, so it's not a legit trick? I thought it was, like the quickscoping and whatnot. Sorry.
