Re: THE BOW

May 21, 2014

I always pictured the special execution as giving them the nastiest splinter ever with the wood of the bow that it just irritates so much, they die.

Don't you even! You think you die, and that's that?! Huh?! You think you die an' everything'll be sugar and rainbows?!

Strangling them with the string would be so epic.

Re: THE BOW

May 21, 2014

Hello, It's been a while since I haven't posted here...

 

Anyway, as a longtime bow-user I have to say that the bow is one of the best weapons in the game when handled correctly. It's a lone-wolf type of weapon. But even then you still need a good team to win the game.

 

Gameplay-wise it couldn't be more balanced, no changes are needed. However, they could lower the parts needed for upgrades. 800 for the last upgrade is too much honestly, especially when you look at other weapons that need less parts to upgrade...

 

So no, the bow is still a good weapon and you should always watch out for experienced bow-users...

I wish I could record but I don't have any method of doing so. My bow loadout is just the bow, the revolver, Agility 3 and Covert 3. And I use the bow ALL the time. No other weapon works with me.

I think that rather than lowering the upgrade cost, players should get bonus parts for bow kills.

I know you guys are real good bowmen, but don't you do better with another weapon? My question is: Is the bow your main weapon? I mean, if you were in a world tlou contest, would you pick bow?

Overall, my best weapons in the game are (and have always been) the Bow, HR and Sniper Rifle...  the revolver and regular shotgun are the only other weapons I've ever managed to use decently well.

 

 As I am better with accuracy-based  weapons, rather than "spread-fire" type weapons, I personally am better with the bow than others... though, if I start getting shot by a full-auto or assault rifle, then I'm pretty much done for (the only chance I normally have is if I manage to get a shot in before said annihilation commences).

 

If I go into a match with anything besides just a bow, I go in with the bow/sniper combo... the HR works well (as does the sniper)... but the scope zoom in time pretty much leads to death in a close combat situation for me... the bow/sniper gives the balance of that.  Ironically, I find I do worse with the bow when I use the sniper (I focus on sniper ammo/tactics moreso in those matches), so my overall performance suffers sometimes...  Plus, it gives away my position.

The infected as seen in TLOU Multiplayer:

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