BEST CLASS FOR THE BOW (TLOUM)

42 replies 15847 views Edited Jul 26, 2013
Trying to get used to the bow. People use it on me all the time and I know the damage on there is real good.. Anyone know a perfect set up for the bow? I guess I'm using the wrong one because I end up having a bad game lol

I'll try to help.

 

I use the bow quite a bit and have had great success (most of the time). 15+ downs and executions blah blah blah, but I would say that you'll only do well with it or any class if youre in team.

 

Loadout 1.

 

Revolver - 0pts

Bow - 3pts

Covert 2 - 4pts (essential) as there is no point having a stealthy silent bow and beeing able to be seen in listen mode.

Brawler 1 - 2pts - I have as the bow isnt the best close quarters, so this can get you out of a tight spot.

Reviver 1 or Explo Exp 1 - 1pt

Shotgun - 3pts again great for destroying people close range (best weapon IMO)

 

Loadout 2.

 

Revolver - 0pts

Bow - 3pts

Covert 2 - 4pts

Collector 2 - 5pts & Explo Exp

OR

First Aid 3

 

Loadout 2 is great as collector get you 20% more point alowing you to upgrade the bow, making a huge difference in draw speed, reload speed, accurace and the wobby from drawing for long periods.

 

Id go with the first Aid though j ust for the same reason, First Aid 2 or 3 gets you hundreds of point when healing teamates.

 

Also try not to be the front man with the bow, especially wth healing abilities, try to stay behind and pop off shots. 

 

Another tip, just go into a private mate alone and practice aiming as randon spots, as the bow takes some getting used too.

Here is mine. But StarJT's 1st Loadout is solid. But I will give you my normal Bow Loadout incase you arent a fan of purchaseables.

 

Revolver/9mm (I like both, so it just depends on what I feel like using)

Bow (3 pts)

Covert 3 (5 points): never have to worry about being marked. and not seen in listen mode. Perfect for flanking. 

First Aid Training 2 (4 points): Quick heal and get extra parts from healing

Reviver 1 or ExplExp 1 (1 point)

 

Personally, I am really good with the bow in CQC, so thats why i dont invest points into purchaseables or brawler, but thats just me. Whatever works for you

I would definitely invest in Covert 3 if you are going to go for Covert 2. Not being marked makes a huge difference if you are going up against random with no mics. Last thing you want to do is getting pinned down from multiple directions when you are using a bow.

Brawler is a great suggestion as it definitely complements the bow nicely. Some sort of purchasable isn't bad either.

The rest just depends on your playstyle.

I use the Bow with Revolver, Covert 2, First Aid 2, Reviver 1 and the Double Barrel. Sometimes without DB and Revolver but with the Enforcer.

What is TLOUM?

The last of us...

I feel like 80% of my forum posting is trying to guess what the acronym is.
