    Stunlocking...with bows?

    I'll make this brief: Can you stunlock with Headshots? Cause I just did a triple headshot and it did seem like a lock...

    I can do Stunlock with bow against Black Knight and some other enemies but never was able to do it with other players.

    if you are close enough, so the arrow doesn't have to travel far, could very well be possible, but being able to get the initial head shot at close range... well you deserve an auto win if you do

    My initial response would be no, since no one has done it to me.
    But maybe it's possible, It probably isn't possible to do it on purpose though. And i think you had a bit of luck when you did that.

    I know headshots stun players, but I can't imagine anyone actually getting stuck in a stunloop.

    Yes, with PvE it is quite easy because none of them can roll away very quickly or raise their guard (LOL, Queelag stunlock), but I did in fact triple headshot a player before my aim went off and missed. I though that it was possible to stunlock a player to death if a player was a good enough sharpshooter.

    It's possible, but you either need to be on a small rise, or to zoom in and follow the head. So yeah, nearly impossible to do it more than twice.

    or to zoom in and follow the head
    That's how I got my triple headshot, the head doesn't move that much, what you need to take into consideration is the movement because a headshot pushes them back.

    I asked a friend to let me shoot him in the face a bunch.

    It seems like you can only get 4-5 (I could only get 4 but I think 5 should be possible if you start point blank) before the pushback takes them far enough away that the timing gets messed up due to travel time on arrows.

    With which bow did you try it? The short bow has the quickest draw of all, Pharis has the slowest...

    yes and no. Yes because you can stunlock a player with a head shot. I got a headshot in with a crossbow when an invader whiffed with a mace and I got a second shot in but it wasn't a head shot since I was aiming. this was near point blank btw. I know spears and maces have attack animations that move your head down towards your body basically over the aim cursor.

    Mage have you ever tried 2h your crossbow? If so then you should be able to score headshots more often.

    I have to. I use the light crossbow for my pure mage with only 9 str.
