Bow and arrow! Clever!
Ehh--em, Oblivion, anybody?
Oh my god that is fucking AWESOME.
No, what will be epic is headshotting someone off the tower in low-grav Orange and seeing how high up the nearest wall they stick to
Although, I'm assuming the arrow will either arc a noticeable amount, or have a noticeable travel time, or both, since Valve apparently wanted to bring the sniper a bit closer to the fray.
Oh my lord. I cannot wait.
"Our arrows will blot out the sun!"
oooooooooooo i want one :shock: :shock: :grin:
Let's hope they don't make 15 achievements dependent on one unlockable then give that unlockable to you last :roll: . cough*SCOUT*cough-cough

Here's hoping for another achievement whoring map on the scrim server >.>
u know they will , half of them will require the bow , but it shall be mine nonetheless !!! :evil:
kinda stupid to have so many achievements for the last unlock , why bother after you've got all the weapons , after that all you get is a second long warm fuzzy feeling.
I think so. The update mentions "dodging", so I guess you should be able to avoid an arrow if shot over a long distance. Since it's a bow I'd imagine it will not have any zoom magnification while aiming.
The one-second charge time for a fully powered shot has me a little concerned. If the headshot damage is the same as the rifle, two or three decent snap-shot players could really tear up a team at medium range (depending on the reload time).
Yes. That's what has my erection close to snapping off. Here's hoping to arrow hipshots!
Since it seems to drastically change how the sniper is played, I think this update may mean me playing sniper a lot more. I always hated the sniper rifle. I could never use it properly, and it always felt like I could never reach out and touch enemy snipers with my rockets fast enough (when playing soldier).
I am seriously looking forward to this unlock. Not only does it sound like stupid fun to use (arched fire arrow rain), it also brings my hated enemy closer to me!
'Wow, I'm sure the weatherman didn't forecast CERTAIN DEATH!'
*crosses fingers for 'jar of piss' unlockable*
My arrows your head get used to it :mrgreen:
this weapon will make for some hilarious moments on the balloon race server, that's for sure.
WTF HACKS! My arrows don't pop the balloon! RAGE!
This is probably a very nit-picking thought...but if (as the page suggests) the arrows will stick in you after you're hit, would the new "additions to your wardrobe" affect your bounding box? The possible changes to rocket-/sticky-jumping could be amusing...
