Hello all, I am new to the forum though I have been watching the game grow for a while. I am very excited for this title and have been enjoying exploring the environment of the Tech demo.
I have looked around the internet for a video or guide on aiming tips, and have only found guides on how to accomplish the quest and acquire the bow. Practicing with what we have right now (trembling/swaying) I have figured a method to get decent aim. I have been able to get scores of 25-30 on the short range with this method. I have not experimented with long distance however.
The hands are fairly stable within the first 1/4 or so of the stamina bar. When you draw the string back, the hands will start to slide in “a” direction (L or R) but will remain relatively level (height-wise). You can make the “slide” move go where you want by moving your mouse or joystick to the side as the bow is being drawn. For the short range, start by trying to aim your center view (middle of screen) approximately 2 meters to the side of the target (left or right is up to you). As you draw, “slide” the mouse towards the target, and try not to make vertical movement. Once your hand is sliding towards the target, do not move the mouse, the hands will continue in that direction enough to get to the target. Loose the arrow as your “pinky” knuckle aligns with the bulls-eye. For height, the index-knuckle will be near the bottom of the target circle (blue ring). These are approximates and you may have to make minor adjustments.
Since I use the pinky knuckle as a guide, I personally prefer to start to the right of the target and slide left.
Also, if you press the right mouse button before the stamina bar drains you will cancel the shot and return to the resting position. Do not force the shot! Take a breath and refocus! Happy shooting!
Glad to be a part of this great community. Looking forward to more from the team!
