Arrows VS Shields



  • Anyone else notice that shields seem to block shots that they clearly shouldn’t be? Like the dude isn’t even looking at you, standing still, 5 feet away and your arrow gets blocked by an invisible force field (which exist during these medieval times) ?

    IMO i think the shield models are smaller than the actual block radius, could just be that, xD



  • Shields do passive blocks against projectiles, so even if he’s not actively blocking, the shield-hitbox will protect him from arrows.

    I think he’s referring to parts of the body where the Shield isn’t, if they are with their side to you, with their shield facing in front of them, you shoot their arm and it hits the shield / left chest / right right, etc.

    “invisible force field” like aoc’s shields when used blocking 270 degree, except this is passive and not supposed to :p
