Currently in the game melee fights with melee weapons are almost non-existent, update after update the dev’s are adding new melee weapons to the game yet it’s much more beneficial in most situations to just whip out a bow and send an arrow to your targets cranium.
So it’s just an idea, to encourage more melee fights make bows more expensive or require additional materials such as horse hair to make the string, or you could try something controversial and give the bow a blueprint.
**I realize the meta would change and that nakeds would be chucking spears everywhere but honestly at least then they have a risk of giving you the spear to you to use against them. **
The reason I made this thread is because I go out so many times armed with only a bow and kill EVERYONE who tries to melee me.
