Throwing hatchets as archer primarys?



  • so they seem like a pretty decent primary for the archer just give him a buckler and 5-6 hatchets and weve got a new primary

    pros since people need convincing

    respectable damage
    great support weapon
    can pick up hatchets from other players that have thrown them
    faster throwing speed than javalins? (couldn’t remember)
    would look amazing on a barbarian archer skin

    cons

    cant be used as a melee weapon like the javelin (unless TB added that which is unlikely)
    cant be thrown as far as javalins
    not as damaging as javalins
    typical javelin cons
    friendlys and enemys can pick up your ammo
    not as manly as the sling



  • if you want to nerf yourself fine, much easier to dodge than arrows/javs



  • Throwing hatchets have garbage range to them and less projectile speed AFAIK. It would be like fighting a much less annoying javelin user.



  • I miss the old thrown weapons before they fucked around with the velocity. Now thrown weapons only go like 25 feet, as if your guy’s strong enough to swing a maul around in full plate armor but too girly to chuck an axe worth a shit.

    so throwing axes would be a nerf but throwing rocks is completely viable?



  • @Tombstone:

    uhhh yeah… they go way further and do good damage, plus you have an infinite amount.

    They’re not throwing them by hand.
    Slinging hatchets would be OP as fuck man.



  • How about 15 throwing knives. I could vote yes for that.



  • @50ShadesofClay:

    hatchets do good damage and the fact that they don’t go far is one of the cons of using them javalins cant be throw across the map but there still every ones favorite

    and no range weapon can beat the slings infinite ammo that’s like comparing fists to the maul it cant match it



  • @dudeface:

    just make a pouch option as the primary then select the ammo type hatchet or knifes



  • What about mini-trebuchets you can push around and launch mauls from.

    Yes, and also hilarious. Make it happen, TB.
