Perhaps that is the slow-moving reload speed 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 really useful to test the damages per hit.

 

Anyway surprising, in ahead versions convert to the crossbow was a far-ranging upgrade.

I to be going to go earlier to my compound bow, also though ns made 500 stole crossbow bolts.

 

Thanks

The crossbow is missing one that its best features which is the capacity to use it at lengthy range. It has a much greater projectile velocity 보다 the bows however it appears that the dropoff price scales through the velocity. So even though the bolt flies faster, it additionally drops faster, providing it equal range to the various other bows.

 

The damage additionally is pretty lackluster also with much better bolts and also skillpoints. Steel bolts along with 20% damages increase indigenous Perception and an added 75% to headshot damage still isn"t sufficient to kill also low HP pool zombies in a single hit. If friend made the same investment that points into Strength and also headshot damage with melee weapons, you"d it is in one shooting many standard zombies.

The crossbow should, at the an extremely least, have actually the very same dps calculation as the compound bow (without any type of modification) considering it"s cost and drawbacks.

I because that one am not poignant that clunky point until it"s the case, link works just fine, I"d even rather use a continuous bw v steel arrows prior to using the crossbow.

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

Bows will constantly reload faster but crossbows do much more damage. Up to you...

It still depends on the DPS girlfriend make. On higher levels you deserve to one-shot kill many zombies as soon as sneaking (sneak damages modifier), but when they are walking it"s pretty hard to execute it (maybe the weakest can go prefer that). Therefore that leaves at least 2 arrows/bolts come the head. Considering how fast you have the right to shoot the bow contrasted to crossbow, you have the right to dish out an ext damage and also kill much more Zs.

 

The boost of damage for crossbow from compound bow doesn"t change much. I gained some ability upgrades for sneak attacks and also overall variety damage, however i have the right to only sneak one-shot the weakest zombies v the compound bow. So normally walking Zs will still need a number of shots either way, which have the right to be done quicker with the bow.

 

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

The crossbow is terrible.

 

1. That reload is SLOW. Yes, really SLOW! It"s absolutely worthless if you require a follow up shooting or twenty.

.....


 

That"s about all we need to understand right there.

 

It"s too slow-moving to use v the brand-new system.

 

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

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

 

I modded in a bow that uses bolts.

Doesn"t execute anymore damages other than what the bolts give and I"m fine through it.

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

 

Maybe I"ll resolve it. Readjust that reload speed.

Either that or seriously increase the damage.

 

If TFP desire 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 appropriate OUT the a zombie head!

- It would certainly pierce anything yet Military armour.

- that would cause ridiculous bleeding damage!

- and also it would suck in ~ long variety and be short to medium variety only.

 

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

Loving A17 and many the the alters so it it s okay my thumbs up.

Not this though. Can"t say ns agree through what castle did to the crossbow.

Yeah, the xbow to be my weapon of choice prior to A17. I offered to find it premium to both the the other bows mainly because of it"s much better long variety accuracy and also I might turn and also run a little while that reloaded. Currently both the those points seem to it is in gone. If castle at the very least made it more accurate in ~ longer selection it would certainly still be usable. An extremely disappointed.

Crossbow would be an ext viable is there wasn"t stamina drain during aiming. Why the hell does anything other than bows drainpipe stamina when aimed?

The crossbow sucks. Favor others have said, the reload time renders it usually worthless. The extra damages it does every shot doesn"t make up for the at all.

Bows additionally drain stamina, probably at slower paces however they do as soon as you obtained the arrow ready. It certainly is an ext drained as soon as you aim with best click, but without it also takes a little of stamina.

If you are in a to run gunfight, don"t it is in in a to run gunfight. When you "go loud" because ♥♥♥♥ struggle the fan, it"s 1000% much better to swap come a melee weapon and back the ♥♥♥♥ the end to someplace wherein you can control turf.

 

Without Run and Gun and Archery, crossbows are a fatality wish. You need a melee weapon come POI raid, and also usually a back-up shotgun for ferals and also irradiated. That goes there is no saying: ARMOR: YOU need IT. Girlfriend don"t outrun a feral, not through the ♥♥♥♥ty stamina system in play.

I"ve never taken to one of two people the link or the crossbow. Both simply "feel wrong" to me. The link bow less, but still. I obtain I"m no the exact same as others, yet I"ll more than likely be make level 5 common bows and also applying mods rather than making use of the an ext powerful versions.

The crossbow has too much range, hits with too tiny impact and also the taking care of makes it seem favor it is designed particularly to obtain you killed.

 

If you room not in a totally safe place it"s a death trap.

Crossbow should end up being a viable alternative as a filler between bow and also guns again. The was a nice development path in game with a logic price of increasing damages while girlfriend level.

For me, the crossbow is the desired weapon because that stealth. Through the 2x scope ns can provide very an exact head shots. Through the bow ns cannot aim so exactly. As well as it wake up to me with the bow often that I get stuck in the target mode. Not good if I have a feral zombie on my heels.

 

And through the exploding bolts the crossbow is a serious weapon in the horde night.
