Perhaps its the sluggish repack rate of the cross bow that makes it seem much less effective.

You are watching: 7 days to die compound bow vs crossbow

 

This would be extremely helpful to test the damage per hit.

 

Anyway surpincreasing, in previous versions switching to the crossbow was a far-ranging upgrade.

I am going to go earlier to my compound bow, also though I made 500 iron crossbow bolts.

 

Thanks

The crossbow is absent one of its finest features which is the capability to usage it at long range. It has a much higher projectile velocity than the bows but it appears that the dropoff price scales with the velocity. So also though the bolt flies much faster, it additionally drops quicker, offering it equal array to the various other bows.

 

The damages likewise is pretty lackluster also via much better bolts and also skillpoints. Iron bolts in addition to 20% damages rise from Perception and also an included 75% to headshot damage still isn"t enough to kill also low HP pool zombies in a single hit. If you made the exact same investment of points into Strength and headswarm damage with melee tools, you"d be one shooting the majority of typical zombies.

The crossbow should, at the incredibly least, have actually the exact same dps output as the compound bow (without any kind of modification) considering it"s price and drawbacks.

I for one am not touching that clunky point until it"s the situation, compound functions simply fine, I"d also quite usage a consistent bw through steel arrows prior to using the crossbow.

The crossbow is not an excellent weapon for a running gunfight... until you invest some perk points...

Bows will certainly constantly refill quicker yet crossbows carry out even more damage. Up to you...

It still relies on the DPS you make. On better levels you can one-swarm kill the majority of zombies as soon as sneaking (sneak damages modifier), however when they are walking it"s pretty hard to execute it (maybe the weakest could go choose that). So that leaves at leastern 2 arrows/bolts to the head. Considering just how fast you can shoot the bow compared to crossbow, you have the right to dish out more damage and also kill even more Zs.

 

The rise of damage for crossbow from compound bow doesn"t readjust a lot. I acquired some skill upgrades for sneak assaults and also as a whole array damage, however i deserve to only sneak one-shot the weakest zombies via the compound bow. So commonly walking Zs will certainly still call for a variety of shots either way, which can be done faster with the bow.

 

Comparing bolts and arrows - they have the very same base damages.

The crossbow is damaging.

 

1. Its repack is SLOW. REALLY SLOW! It"s absolutely worthless if you require a follow up shot or twenty.

.....


 

That"s about all we have to know ideal tright here.

 

It"s as well slow to use with the new system.

 

If you desire to shoot and also then run up and hit them, there"s no method you have the right to use a crossbow.

Compound looks to be the ideal we have for now.

 

I modded in a bow that supplies bolts.

Doesn"t perform anymore damage various other than what the bolts give and I"m fine via it.

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

 

Maybe I"ll deal with it. Change that reload rate.

Either that or seriously boost the damages.

 

If TFP want to go semi-realism and make the crossbow sreduced... for ... you understand... reasons...

 

... then let"s obtain real.

- A crossbow would knock the brains appropriate OUT of a zombies head!

- It would certainly pierce anything however Military armour.

- It would certainly cause ridiculous bleeding damage!

- And it would certainly suck at lengthy selection and be brief to medium array only.

 

That"s not fun. That"s not game play.

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

Not this though. Can"t say I agree via what they did to the crossbow.

Yeah, the xbow was my weapon of option before A17. I supplied to discover it superior to both of the other bows largely as a result of it"s much better long range accuracy and also I can turn and also run a tiny while it reloaded. Now both of those points seem to be gone. If they at leastern made it more precise at much longer range it would certainly still be usable. Very disappointed.

Crossbow would certainly be even more viable is there wasn"t strength drainpipe throughout aiming. Why the heck does anything various other than bows drainpipe stamina while aimed?

The crossbow sucks. Like others have actually said, the reload time renders it basically worthless. The extra damage it does per shot doesn"t comprise for that at all.

Bows also drain stamina, perhaps at slower paces but they perform as soon as you obtained the arrow prepared. It absolutely is more drained when you aim via right click, but without it also takes a bit of stamina.

If you are in a running gunfight, do not be in a running gunfight. Once you "go loud" because ♥♥♥♥ hit the fan, it"s 1000% much better to swap to a melee weapon and earlier the ♥♥♥♥ out to somearea wbelow you can manage turf.

 

Without Run and also Gun and Archery, crossbows are a fatality wish. You need a melee weapon to POI rhelp, and usually a back-up shotgun for ferals and irradiated. It goes without saying: ARMOR: YOU NEED IT. You don"t outrun a feral, not through the ♥♥♥♥ty toughness system in play.

I"ve never before taken to either the compound or the crossbow. Both simply "feel wrong" to me. The compound bow less, however still. I obtain I"m not the very same as others, yet I"ll more than likely be making level 5 normal bows and also using mods quite than making use of the even more effective versions.

The crossbow has too much selection, hits via as well little bit influence and the handling provides it seem prefer it is designed particularly to acquire you killed.

 

If you are not in a totally safe place it"s a fatality trap.

Crossbow need to become a viable choice as a filler in between bow and weapons aacquire. That was a nice progression course in game with a logic rate of boosting damages while you level.

The crossbow has also a lot range, hits through also bit affect and also the handling makes it seem choose it is designed particularly to acquire you eliminated.

 

If you are not in a fully safe position it"s a death trap.


 

For me, the crossbow is the wanted weapon for stealth. With the 2x scope I have the right to supply extremely specific head shots. With the bow I cannot aim so precisely. Besides it happens to me with the bow regularly that I get stuck in the targain mode. Not excellent if I have a feral zombie on my heels.

 

And via the exploding bolts the crossbow is a major weapon in the horde night.
