Silenced Shorty + Bow Combo vs Shorty + Bow Combo

62 replies 456 views Edited Nov 11, 2013

 

Ive recently been trying this load out ... Silenced Shorty + Bow + Sharpshooter 3 + First Aid Training 1 ... I know most people say theres no need for silenced shorty but Ive been in several fights on my own vs several enemies where they weren't spotting me while I kept shooting them with a shorty. If you dont have much experience with the silenced shorty I would advise to try it out and see what you think. Please discuss why you like the shorty + bow combo and if you prefer silenced shorty or unsilenced shorty thanks.

ive used a silenced loadout and one without them, seems like once you open fire people find you anyways. its not worth the extra 2-4 points to me. i am all for covert but the silencers seem useless.

I find the shorty a gimmick, because I don't really understand or feel the effective range.

 

I use it with a flamethrower loadout as a troll weapon.  I love using it for Special Executions, because they're brutal, and PAL-region people can't see the true brutality.

@scoot have you spent enough time with a fully upgraded shorty? I've been messing around with it lately and it often almost feel unfair :smileyvery-happy:

the shorty is no gimic weapon, i get half my downs with it. its advantage is close range of course but its real power is how you can pop out of cover, fire quickly, duck, reload, and fire again. while they are trying to line you up with their little revolvers, 9mms, ect you just point in their general direction even right after sprinting and it will hit. It can also take down 2 at a time.

I haven't.  I tend to spend all my money from the loadout on flame ammo.

 

AK was asking me about it, too.  I don't know enough about the standard performance to judge the upgrade.

I use shorty + bow in one of my exclusive loadouts. Since the bow is inherently silent and arguably superior to silenced guns in terms of stealth, I see no need to do so with the shorty.

 

As far as the upgraded shorty RoF goes, you can tell if you shoot ther shots in succession, but I personally always found the shorty more effective in fitting in punches and/or bobbing and weaving while shooting the shorty regardless of being level 0 or level 2. The reload speed does become tolerable though once upgraded.

I haven't used the shorty much.  Much like scootgar, I find it unreliable (because I too have trouble figuring out the range and how to actually get a down with it)...  I that gun kind of like a mini-shotgun, though I have a better understanding of the shotgun's mechanics.

 

On that note however, I have seen more people lately using it.

 

I was wondering if anyone had any good tips or thoughts on it (not entirely pertaining to the thread I know).

The infected as seen in TLOU Multiplayer:

Runners- Noobs
Stalkers- Covert Training 3 users
Clickers- Constant reloaders
Bloaters- People getting blown up by bombs
