    Hacked arrows 360

    Post by Anchises on Sat Apr 27, 2013 12:51 am

    So while invading as a darkwraith in the forest I came across an item, and having once before picked up 20 gwyn's souls, I picked it up. Sure, it could have easily been a trap but hey, what do I have to lose if the host snipes me with a great arrow or soul spear? I might even pick up a dung pie or two.

    Anyway, the item turned out to be about ten arrows, that were identical to standard arrows except their name was "?WeaponName?" and their AR was something like 120(compared to standard's 45, feather's 50, and large's 60). Needless to say, I blanched at the idea of these things even existing(I'm getting tired of coming across those crystal greatswords that somehow one-shot me at 1123hp) but curious as I am to how arrow AR affects eventual damage, I decided to try them out, pve only.

    With my 40/40 build and +15 composite bow, the arrows did about an extra 130 or so damage on NG+ oolacile citizens and humanity people. Pretty mean. That would roughly be an extra 100 damage on actual players, by my guestimation, which is a scary prospect considering I already wreck(to a degree) people with my comp bow, especially with counter damage boost or with my red tearstone activated.

    Well, I just felt like people should know this sort of thing is out there, thankfully not too many hackers use bows in my experience.

    Seems like a pretty pointless hack haha. I wonder how much trouble they went through.

    That hack is not pointless, 100 extra damage is insane considering how much damage a bow usually does. Especially in RTS, an extra 150 damage would wreck everything.
    Also, he just modded the level of the arrows to be +15 or something.

    What if they modded the poison arrows to do more dmg per second? Evil Fex

    Toxic Arrows?

    There are already weapons that people mod to have cursing properties.

    So I forgot that your Status menu screen gives you the AR for bows, dependent on the arrow type. With my 40/40 build and +15 comp bow, here are the numbers. Arrow type, damage of arrow, equipped AR(no arrows is 310), damage dealt to NG+ Undead Burg Crossbow soldier.

    I measured the distance by the bricks near the bonfire and went for headshots(30%), because of the angle I couldn't get a clear body shot without hitting an arm occasionally which also gets a damage modifier.

    Wooden
    35
    389
    352

    Poison
    42
    405
    368

    Standard
    45
    412
    375

    Feather
    50
    423
    386

    Large
    60
    446
    357

    ?Weapon?(hacked arrows)
    112
    565!!!
    556

    Note that with a composite bow, due to its poor range, feather arrows deal more damage than large arrows, despite the higher AR.

    And yes, with RTSR activated, it's safe to say that these hacked arrows could kill most players in a few shots.
