Query about using a bow


#1

Not sure if this is a bug or part of the gameplay;

Twice now I’ve pulled out a bow (first it was Hans Capon’s bow, then the Cuman bow) and every time I hold R2, instead of drawing back it releases immediately, resulting in a limp shot.

With the Hans Capon bow, it did perform normally eventually. It’s also worth noting that both Bows are technically above my current stat levels.

I assume this is a bug or a result of using a bow with stats too high.


#2

If your Henry is noob with bows, the result is he can’t draw bow for more than few seconds and barely shoot more than meter away.


#3

This is what I thought, as my Henry currently is Noob Level. I think Level 1, maybe 2.

However, I can win the Beginner’s Archery Contest easily, and I did very well in The Prey quest, easily hitting rabbits and even one shotting one of the bandits.


#4

It depends what level of bow you are using. Especially Cuman bows are hard to draw.


#5

Yes, you are right. I can’t use the Cuman Bow but I can still use Hans Capon’s bow, which has less stat requirements. Thanks
