  • Five kills in a row is easy when you just sit in the backm, away from danger. Fuck Archers.



  • It’s more common with 20 or 30 kills in a row when you play archer on pub servers though.



  • Hey Agent Fluff and Xylvion, i’m happy to read! But, can you show us what you are claiming, or you can just TALK??
    As I said, let’s share our videos!

  • I was expecting the video to be 5 shots 5 kills, instead of 5 kills without dying.

    Played some shortbow the last few days to get the achievement.

  • Crossbow archers are nothing special - I have never seen one who I considered actually skilled, since the weapon is so easy. It got the fastest projectiles, highest damage and fastest fire from idle. All you got to do is hide behind your shield or a structure way back from the fight to reload safely and just spam bolts. It requires the least skill of the archer weapons to use, which is why I often see a rank 10 do just as well as a rank 40+ with a crossbow.

    If you want any kind of challenge as archer, at least use the bow. You will be closer to the fight and have to think about positioning, and you have to predict and lead your shots way more, because bow arrows are slower. You also need to hit the same target twice to get a kill, because of the lower damage.

    It would also make for more interesting videos, instead of you standing still 90% of the time, playing against people who are not competent enough to punish you for that.

    Look at this bum playing defense every round. Try and play on offense and push the objective with that bow instead of hiding on a wall and shooting noobs!



  • Do you even FOV bro?

    I would go so far as to say the Warbow is the most difficult projectile weapon to master in online gaming. The unfortunate thing is there is no favorable cost/benefit with that difficulty after the nerf. That’s why you’ve seen people abandon it in droves.

    So yes, bows generally require more skill, but benefit over crossbow is less vulnerability during reload, and shorter reloads (aside from Warbow).
