Perhaps its the sluggish reload rate of the overcome bow that provides it seem much less effective.

You are watching: 7 days to die crossbow vs bow

 

This would certainly be very useful to test the damage per hit.

 

Anyway surprising, in vault versions switching to the crossbow was a significant upgrade.

I to be going come go earlier to my link bow, even though i made 500 steel crossbow bolts.

 

Thanks

The crossbow is lacking one of its ideal features which is the ability to usage it at long range. It has actually a much greater projectile velocity 보다 the bows however it appears that the dropoff rate scales with the velocity. So even though the bolt paris faster, it additionally drops faster, providing it equal range to the other bows.

 

The damage additionally is nice lackluster also with far better bolts and skillpoints. Steel bolts along with 20% damages increase from Perception and also an included 75% to headshot damages still isn\"t enough to kill also low HP swimming pool zombies in a single hit. If you made the very same investment the points right into Strength and also headshot damages with melee weapons, you\"d be one shooting most standard zombies.

The crossbow should, at the an extremely least, have actually the exact same dps calculation as the link bow (without any kind of modification) considering it\"s cost and also drawbacks.

I because that one am not poignant that clunky point until it\"s the case, link works simply fine, I\"d also rather use a continual bw with steel arrows before using the crossbow.

The crossbow is not a great weapon for a running gunfight... Until you invest some perk points...

Bows will constantly reload faster yet crossbows do more damage. As much as you...

It still depends on the DPS friend make. On greater levels you deserve to one-shot kill most zombies once sneaking (sneak damage modifier), yet when they space walking it\"s pretty difficult to do it (maybe the weakest can go like that). So that leaves at the very least 2 arrows/bolts to the head. Considering how rapid you can shoot the bow contrasted to crossbow, you can dish out an ext damage and also kill much more Zs.

 

The increase of damages for crossbow from link bow doesn\"t readjust much. I obtained some ability upgrades for sneak attacks and also overall variety damage, but i can only sneak one-shot the weakest zombies with the link bow. So generally walking Zs will still call for a number of shots one of two people way, which can be done quicker with the bow.

 

Comparing bolts and also arrows - they have the same base damage.

The crossbow is terrible.

 

1. That is reload is SLOW. Really SLOW! It\"s absolutely worthless if you require a monitor up shoot or twenty.

.....


 

That\"s about all we require to know right there.

 

It\"s too slow to use through the brand-new system.

 

If you want to shoot and then operation up and hit them, there\"s no way you deserve to use a crossbow.

Compound look at to be the ideal we have actually for now.

 

I modded in a bow that supplies bolts.

Doesn\"t perform anymore damages other 보다 what the bolts give and I\"m fine with it.

Shame though... In A16 crossbow was my favourite weapon.

 

Maybe I\"ll fix it. Readjust that reload speed.

Either that or seriously increase the damage.

 

If TFP want to go semi-realism and make the crossbow slower... For ... You know... Reasons...

 

... Then let\"s get real.

- A crossbow would certainly knock the brains best OUT the a zombies head!

- It would pierce anything yet Military armour.

- the would reason ridiculous bleeding damage!

- and also it would suck at long selection and be brief to medium range only.

 

That\"s no fun. That\"s not video game play.

Loving A17 and many of the transforms so it gets my thumbs up.

Not this though. Can\"t say i agree v what castle did come the crossbow.

Yeah, the xbow was my weapon of an option prior to A17. I provided to uncover it remarkable to both of the other bows mainly because of it\"s much better long variety accuracy and also I might turn and run a little while that reloaded. Currently both that those things seem to it is in gone. If castle at the very least made it much more accurate at longer range it would certainly still be usable. Very disappointed.

Crossbow would certainly be an ext viable is there wasn\"t stamina drain during aiming. Why the heck does anything other than bows drain stamina if aimed?

The crossbow sucks. Like others have actually said, the reload time renders it basically worthless. The extra damages it does per shot doesn\"t make up for the at all.

Bows also drain stamina, possibly at slower paces however they do as soon as you gained the arrow ready. It absolutely is more drained when you target with ideal click, however without it likewise takes a little bit of stamina.

If you space in a to run gunfight, don\"t be in a to run gunfight. As soon as you \"go loud\" since ♥♥♥♥ struggle the fan, it\"s 1000% far better to swap to a melee weapon and ago the ♥♥♥♥ out to someplace where you can regulate turf.

 

Without Run and Gun and Archery, crossbows are a death wish. You need a melee weapon to POI raid, and also usually a back-up shotgun because that ferals and also irradiated. It goes there is no saying: ARMOR: YOU require IT. Friend don\"t outrun a feral, not through the ♥♥♥♥ty stamina mechanism in play.

I\"ve never ever taken to one of two people the compound or the crossbow. Both just \"feel wrong\" come me. The link bow less, yet still. I acquire I\"m no the very same as others, but I\"ll more than likely be do level 5 regular bows and applying mods fairly than using the an ext powerful versions.

The crossbow has too much range, hits v too small impact and also the taking care of makes the seem choose it is designed especially to obtain you killed.

 

If you space not in a totally safe position it\"s a fatality trap.

Crossbow should become a viable option as a filler in between bow and also guns again. The was a nice progression path in game with a logic price of increasing damages while you level.

For me, the crossbow is the wanted weapon for stealth. V the 2x scope i can deliver very an accurate head shots. V the bow ns cannot aim so exactly. Besides it wake up to me through the bow frequently that I acquire stuck in the target mode. Not an excellent if I have a feral zombie on mine heels.

 

And with the exploding bolts the crossbow is a severe weapon in the horde night.
