The bow already to powerful, it already has a silencer feature, 2 shots even with armor which causes penetration damage, if all else make it a purchaseable wepon, swap it with Double barrel.

Re: THE BOW

I'd like to think I'm a pretty talented bow user myself. The funny thing about it is that I can't play very well with other weapons. I blame my hundreds of hours of playing a stealth soldier on Metal Gear Online. I don't think my bow needs a buff. At times, it seems unfair to my opponents. Example, when being aimed with properly, it can take down groups of people very quickly! One scenario that happens too often is when I managed to sneak around folks and be behind them with all of their backs facing me. It takes a second or two to perfectly line up the reticule to the back of one of their heads and bam, instant down. In the next second when their team mates are reacting to their ally falling and still not noticing me, bam. Another headshot down. It seems to always be that only after two downs, then the enemy will finally react to me. I generally don't have enough time to line up another headshot since the last guy is already firing but it doesn't matter. A fully upgraded bow can fire about 3 arrows in 2 seconds when just quickdrawing. At close range, those arrows always land. In a matter of a littleover 5 seconds, I got 3 downs and three executions. And ammo is never am issue since you pick up 3 arrows on each fellow you kill. I've done this many, many times. Whenever it's groups of 2, 90% of the time I prevail. When it groups of 3, it's a good 70%. Groups of 4 however aren't too successful so I normaly don't engage until one of them wanders off.

Now I'm not bragging here, I just wanted to give y'all an idea of the perspective of a decent bowman.

I would love to see that. Can you upload a video? What's your loadout?
I can down a enemy or two when I'm facing their backs only, and if only, THEY DON'T HAVE MICS. And as soon someone spots me, I have to retreat, because I can't land a single arrow if I get shot. The damage wobble is so severe that I just can win heads up if I'm running SS3. In this case, my loadout is bow, ss3 and ct3... Blah... It isn't worth a whole loadout to ambush a guy or two.

Just not to say is pretty harder now to get a whole team's back with the new awareness 2. You think you're covered, crouch walking behind a window, but you have a huge red neon on your head instead.

How to make the Bow realllllyyy OP...... Allow the arrows to be used as shivs or at least a special execution.

I would say it's less about how good you are at aiming and more about how good you are at setting up situations where the bow works best.

It has taken me a long time to find a bow loadout that works for me. I will have a video on it next week :smileyhappy:

And Sancho's trolling us.....
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?

I always imagined the special execution would be awesome if they pulled an arrow from the quiver and stuck it in the enemy's eye.
