Why is it so hard to hit attacking players with arrows?
I found enemies fighting and swinging almost impossible to hit. Sometimes the arrows will go right though them. Is it the little forward dash thing that makes it hard?
Flinch + How slow your weapon is + Which direction you’re swinging from + Ping + Where you’re aiming.
Too many variables to accurately detail why it’s difficult for you. There are many reasons why it’s difficult.
Indeed, the melee combat in this game is not perfect.
Sometimes you can get stabbed even though the polearm never got closer than 40centimerers to your dude.
I once swung my hammer behind a guy, and then watched his head go POP!
I’ve also swung my Hatchet through a Vanguard’s belly(it was literally inside of his torso, both the upper shift and the whole blade!) and the game didn’t register it as a hit.
Also, shield models don’t accurately represent their area of defense.
I’ve killed a knight with a huge tower shield on his back by hitting him in the ‘back’ with a small axe, lol
