    hello!
    i will start off saying that i am inexperienced, but anyway, i find the bow UP. not for the damage, nor rate of fire, nor arc. the problem is the ammunition.
    taking the SMG, it has 250 rounds, for 2 damage each, is 500 damage before running out of bullets.
    the bow has a max of 240 damage, good only for finshing blows.
    i suggest raising it to 25-30 arrows, so it can have the same power of the SMG.
    what do you think?

    Well, seeing as it fires rapidly, and like you said "the bow has a max of 240 damage, good only for finshing blows" That's exactly what it's for. I personally use it when someone is to far to use a Para/Shotgun, just line up your sights on your arrow, and wait for it to hit, than just keep spamming. Which will basically destroy a vending machine, and also, I would like to point out that the Compound Bow actually has a chance of going through multiple props and dealing damage to more than 1 prop at a time. So it's max damage can possibly be way higher than that.

    Don't forget the utility. Being able to pierce through concrete barriers, and hit the wood shelves more than once is pretty useful. With an SMG for example, you can't hit the props that hold the boat up without having to destroy the defensive props.

    It's fine how it is. It's a bonus for signing up on the forums. It shouldn't be better.

    Meh, I like it at 20 arrows with 20 damage, I feel like it is perfectly balanced.
