Ideas on how to fix the crossbow
« on: January 23, 2021, 08:28:19 pm »
What is its intended use?
killing animals before guns i guess...

Why nobody uses it?
i think its dps is so low that people feel its better to just melee the animals they can kill and ignore the rest.

Possible fixes?

1.Increase damage lol (will this be enough?)

2.Give it a chance to slow the animal (after hitting a slow you can try to melee the animal without being hit)

3.Allow reloading only while standing still to justify a bigger damage increase. (because crossbows cannot be reloaded while moving, throw your one fat bolt then melee the animal more easily)

4.Make the crossbow an early pvp weapon? add a high bleed chance for iron arrows and add poisoned arrows to the game (bleed and poison deal much more damage when people don't have super high dps T3-4 weapons) also bleed is a joke because of bandages but it still helps a bit.

The goal of my suggestions is to make the crossbow usable and give it its own time to shine during a wipe.

also please share your thoughts and suggestions about the crossbow if you got any.
