JohannFaulstich Posted November 27, 2018 Share Posted November 27, 2018 In my latest play through I was using a compound bow from day 1. They seem very easy to find. I have perception 5, headshot 3, and head strike 3. This has been very effective as I can 1 shot from stealth easily. Recently I switched to a crossbow and it is fairly underwhelming. It "feels" like I am doing less damage per hit. However the XML indicated otherwise: I looked at the XML bows have a .3 entity damage multiplier iron arrows have a entity damage of 30 Reload Speed Multiplier .9 crossbows are a .45 entity damage multiplier iron bolts have a entity damage of 30 Reload Speed Multiplier .5 Perhaps its the slow reload speed of the cross bow that makes it seem less effective. >>Is there any way to see the damage you do when you hit something?<< This would be very useful to test the damage per hit. Anyway surprising, in previous versions switching to the crossbow was a significant upgrade. I am going to go back to my compound bow, even though I made 500 iron crossbow bolts.
