The current implementation is pretty great once you get used to it. It’s a lot like legacy and it’s a powerful weapon that allows a newman to defend oneself with practice. Because it’s hard, you can keep it powerful and I have been able to defend myself from gun owners with just the bow. In fact I have gotten a few guns in the process because I was able to prevail. Looks like they are going to change it
If it’s easy then it probably can’t be that powerful which means it might just turn into a gun race. Current the bow is a decent primary weapon if you practice enough. I was surprised how balance things felt over this weekend.
