Longbow NEEDS a change

★★★ Apprentice

It stops you in place, cutting all your momentum when you get shot and the fire rate is way too fast for how much damage it does especially on a headshot. Almost every game is a sniping match now.

I agree that the Longbow is a good spot atm and maybe needs a nerf.
2 Shots is enough to take one player out the game and with that fire rate it's incredible strong in the right hand.

A lower fire rate to make it less forgiving could be a nice fix.

@Zeelmaekers lower fire rate and more recoil for sure.

There should be a mobility penalty when you shoot with the Longbow. The spread needs to be massive when firing in succession. There also needs to be faster bullet speed and more damage to the body and head to offset the huge recoil and movement change. The magazine size should be drastically reduced (more to the kraber size to start with and ending at 7 rounds).

Yea I agree it could use some slight adjustments, I always find myself replacing one of my guns when I find the over powered longbow. :]

The fire rate buff needs to be reverted. Other than that I'd leave it alone, though I might examine the Skullpiercer buff and tone that down.

The gun is fine. You died, get over it. Sniping SHOULD be a thing.

You're an ignorant troll if you think I said sniping shouldn't be a thing. Try reading.
