Wait, learn all play styles, adapt.

Every one on this game is a NOOB to it.

 

When your a seasoned player on a game and you see new players doing "noob things", I got news for you-- we are all there right now.

 

Lets not jump the gun and ruin this game with nerf and buff threads.

 

Give the game a **bleep** chance!

 


TOTALLY agree.

 

At this point, having used most weapons to a fair degree, I can't see any reason to think the bow is OP. Most likely someone using it will have points in Covert, and possibly Eagle eye or similar, (does anyone know if sharpshooter effects bow use or just sniper rifles?)

 

So an equal level opponent will likely have more items to throw at them, or be quicker getting a melee weapon etc, it's all about choices.

 

If a player is OP with a bow, its far more likely their situational awareness is what's killing you, and that won;t change no matter what weapon you put in their hands.

 

As previous poster says tho, let's give the game a bit of breathing space before anyone yells 'nerf'.

I think the ''Multiplayer tweaks/suggestions'' thread may have been a bit too soon.

Apparently not. 

 

The "This weapon has killed me alot therefore is OP" thought process is thick here.

The bow should make more noise. You should be able to hear the string pluck or pull back or something thats my only complaint two hit downs tho useless far away and at close quarters its balanced enough.

I third this. It's far too early to whine. Games get broken becuae people cry nerf. Don't perpetuate the problem.

enough is enough already.


I played this game for the first time last night, reminded me of the Hunger Games.

I can aim better far away up close i am sh**. far as the bow i had a better time using the hunter rifle, plus you can get perks to make it silent and off radar as well from what i understand, right?

Just a reply @OP, i think that it COULD be overpowered, but I can't telll...I can't use it haha. I'm absolutely awful with it for some reason, so I respect when someone destroys me 1v1 with it.
