    an idea for the sniper crossbow...involving felt tipped markers

    Post by sparkly-twinkly-lizard on Mon Oct 15, 2012 8:39 pm

    basically if you took a bow sight and traced it with a marker or something that won't damage your tv you could use the binoculars to aim the crossbow acurately as if you press fire while looking through the binoculars you'll shoot where you were looking... anyone have any ideas on what kindof markers would work? or if an aimable sniper crossbow would actually be useful for something... also could some one figure out the effective range of the sniper crossbow with sniper bolts and the hawk ring (70 range+ bolts range boost+50%=???)

    basically do you think i could use this setup to head shot people from the other side of any of the large areas?

    lol!

    Dude, i think that is taking it a bit too far. That trick with the binoculars is actually pretty easy to get used to doing by guessing. Thing is, it is not very viable. Try to learn to free aim crossbows without lock on, that can be a lot more viable in pvp. A good way to practice is with the pots near petrus. Run around a bit then try to aim for a certain pot, as fast as possible. You can do it with bows too.

    .......that is acutally brilliant. I don't like Petrus anyway so if I kill him whatever.

    i was using this trick to kill hollow soldiers from the firelink bonfire... but your way makes more sense...

    lol!

    btw with all the range boosters on the bolts lost no damage between firing and hitting the holow soldiers at that extreme distance...

    That's very, very clever, perfect for trolling somewhere like Sens' or on the rafters in AL: boom, head shot!

    First time I read this I though you were proposing a gun-type controller for aiming the crossbow sparkly. bounce

    I used to do that with another game that didn't have the aiming reticule that this game does. It worked slick.
