    Bows in pvp

    How do you counter them. Every time someone pulls one of these god damn things out it over for me. All they do is run away and shoot, run away and shoot, and run away and shot till I'm dead. Its infuriating. I can't get close to them >:@

    What? Where? I just take cover and heal, or just hide behind a wall and wait. Same as I do with anyone that just backpedals throwing stuff; I just don't chase them.

    Or use a shield and cross bow; block their shot and fire one of your own.

    Use shields and dodge or you use also a bow in fighting them. "An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth".

    Just use the shield then or right timing to dodge; you can do it.

    Or just hide. In the forest, use trees. Use walls in other areas. Make them come to you, possibly with poison throwing knives or dung.

    Just think of it as a much faster spell. If they don't do it just right you can punish them. Whats your weapons? If you have a +10 Fire Spider Shield, you are literally in no danger from them, no arrows would have any effect, with 86.4 fire resistance you're looking at about 32 damage a shot (Fire +10 Composite Bow, Fire Arrows), before armor (so like none after). Just have one ready for bow users and it will help you as you get better and better at fighting them.

    What weapons do you have?

    bow kiting is a rather underrated strategy in my book. ive had some good times in the kiln against enemies who berserker rush me while toxified and poisoned simply because, i had a bow. the best strategy? any sort of barrier. almost every arena has one. the only place i can think of that doesn't really give you this option is the burg dueling spot. at that point, just hold up a shield and bum rush em.

    i always have purple moss with me and when i see someone pulling a bow i run in their direction, dodging of course, with my katana. Great combustion works too

    MWUAHAHAHA, my plan to instill fear with bows is working!

    Don't just run straight in. Strafe and close th gap, if they fire an arrow I'll just fly to the spot you were last at. Good bow users will let you try to close the gap with a running attack, only to score a headshot when you try a running r1 and did out you were a step early to land it. I should know, My composite is doing 230 with poison arrows on body shots, imagine how much I do with large arrows on headshots twisted

    Well, I am using a lifehunt scythe and a lighting claymore in the right hand, and a pyro glove and grass crest shield in the left.

    I use a bow but I'm not actually trying to hit anyone....just piss them off till they come at me...then I bow cancel parry them silly

    Your using the right weapon tho just use my technique....flip/roll into the bow attack until your close...then when you come out of the last flip/roll just do a back flip/roll then R1 2 handing the scythe...you'll likely still take under 200 dmg or not...but they will take 450 or so dmg!!

    But just becareful its not me or ill parry you lol
