Bow is overpowered and not fun

225 replies 3845 views Edited Jun 20, 2013

So everyone is using the bow and apparently in the Last of Uinverse, is the most badass weapon ever - I lose to it every time....

 

enough is enough already.

Do they really? Most people seem to favor the semi-auto from my experience.

Well, I'm starting to see the bow more and more - but you are right, it does depend on the match

The Silenced Semi-Auto, IMO, is better. Much faster than the bow from my experience. However, if the bow user is undetected or can't be found, they will win because their arrows make absolutely no noise, whereas the Semi-Auto does.

To be honest, I need to practice with it a bit more. Whenever I see someone using it, I try to use movement patterns that force them to aim ahead of me, making it more difficult. Overall, I feel like the standard weapons are very balanced. I've only gotten frustrated at weapon balance once because some guy camped out the entire match with the military sniper on the far end of Lakeside. He was the last man standing, and it was great to watch the entire team converge on him.

Please delete this thread I don't want my bow being nuked. I love the bow and I don't find it overpowered.

 

Just like any game people can get good at using it but it's hard to use. Aiming it and quick firing is hard. In close quaters it's pretty much almost useless at times.

 

Bow takes two hits *idk how many with armor* to get you down same with the hunting rifle. I don't see why you say the bow is overpowered when the Hunting rifle does the same thing. Hunting Rifle is about the same except you actually get a scope. They both take a while to reload btw the bows reload = it's drawback time.

hardly OP, plus it takes a while to unlock so most people will be confined to use the pre-made loadout

I use the bow and it loses at close range. You also need very steady aim with it to use it properly.

I haven't played the bow, but don't arrows require travel time?  I find I only ever lose to a bow if they are in mid range and I have no cover.  Otherwise it's very difficult for the other guy to get a bead while they're getting shot at.
