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