Markus Kruber Hunter ranged weapons tests + prowl tests (finished)

Because of Longbow which is worse than I expected I’ve decided to run some tests with different kind of weapons. Tests are made on dummies because Victor didn’t catch enough test subjects. Tests were run with basic items on lvl 17 Kruber, ending with 175 hero power.

Hunter’s Prowl works ONLY with ranged weapons, removing ammo consumption and increasing damage. I’ve found “disappearing from sight” not working as intended (many times got attacked even when the ability was active and I was hidden) and “ambush” description misleading. Ability starts right after You use it, not when You start shooting.

Summary

(To be sure that it’s fully charged, You can wait until zoom but there is the period of time before zoom when a bow is already charged- basically when right-hand gets out of vision, so it’s tricky. there is even another period of time before that, lowering damage a little, so I’ll use hand-out-of-sight mode)

Conclusions

Somehow I prefer Longbow. Probably worst accuracy from all snipers, a full charge is not beneficial for damage, blocks movement and increases accuracy only slightly. I’m using talent for reduced weapon spread “on target” to get decent accuracy. Increased reload speed doesn’t increase bow speed.

Nice! I’d love to see more about other weapons too.

I think I’ll be able to finish everything during the weekend including results and opinion :slight_smile:

Looks like I’ll finish it tomorrow, with conclusions and making it more transparent

about the stealth part of the ult… I’ll quote myself again : description is a bit misleading. enemies that already target you will continue but no new targets will target you.
Also, this concers all stealth abilities, you still take damage even though you’re in stealth mode.

Personally I don’t mind too much how the stealth mechanic works I just play accordingly but they should write a new description.

Thanks for the number :slight_smile: good work.

Strange that the handgun does worse damage to armor than the longbow. I guess fatshark intended huntsman to be a one-weapon career. :thinking:

If you haven’t seen it you’d definitely be interested in Positron’s data:

Also note this does not consider Chaos Warriors, who don’t count as armoured and have their own hyper armour/boss armour.
