    Post by moomootv on Wed May 15, 2013 9:22 pm

    i really want them to bring them back but make them better i had an idea make another crossbow like the avalin with the r1 as a single shot and the r2 a burst of 3 shots hell if we can move and shoot these like bows even better but ik people are fighting to have guns in darksouls and all i have to say is no just no its dumb and would burn this game to the ground

    anyways what are some things you guys would like to be done to crossbows?

    Crossbows should have a "2-hit combo".

    Hit R1 once and your person will go into an aiming position, which will decrease your movement speed, and R1 again to shoot.

    Forward R1 would be a bash with the crossbow or a kick like with melee weapons.

    You can cancel the aiming by rolling or pressing R1.

    Press R2 to reload. Which means that you'll recover faster after shooting.

    Nice improvements Lunar. I say they should have a faster speed when fired, a slightly slower reload speed than a bow but that a crossbow can hit farther than the bow.

    a crank crossbow that has a reload time that scales with dex, other crossbow's reload times would scale with str as you physically pull the string back.

    You realize that moving while shooting a crossbow will essentially be a pistol? The crossbows in DkS1 already act as a high-powered mag-like weapon.

    Bring them back, but with some modifications.
    1) 1 handed, you cannot aim, but 2H and you can. This seems to reflect reality the most. If you were to hold a crossbow with one hand, you could probably still fire it, but you wouldnt be likely to hit anything more than the side of a barn. Two handed, you would probably be pretty good with it.
    2) Manual reload. One of my big pet peeves with the crossbows in DkS was that they would leave you so vulnerable while they reloaded. Even if the reloading action was as simple as pressing the fire button again, it would make crossbows more useful for PvP.
