Im the CasterMaster(Experiencing the bowcaster)!

Post by ManEatingWaffle on Thu Mar 31, 2011 7:22 pm

Just wanted to share what I found about Bowcasters:

Study: How to use the caster effectively?

Result: As I still am working on this, I have come to a conclusion though. Recently I have been using the caster, and its been showing some interesting results.

Fig 1: Although the caster is a underused weapon, I decided to try it out
Fighting with some "good" players. I found I had some decent results. Keep in mind, although it was hard to get to the caster sometimes I used it to get 90% + of my kills.

Fig 2 : Like in the first, I am still using the caster and getting 10 or more kills.

Fig 3: Decided to play on a euro server to see how the caster performs under a higher ping.

Conclusion and Observation: The caster seems to be a decent all round weapon. It seems to me that it perfoms well against the dc17 sniper rifle. The bouncing off the walls will give you extra hits, and the meele of the caster seems to be greater than that of the shotgun and equal to that of the dc17 sniper. The caster seems underused so you can probably find it at its spawn 90% of the time(unless your playing with me). So to conclude: GET OUT AND USE THE CASTER!

Yeah that is for sure!
Whenever I use the caster, i always do a full charge and if it hits I usually melee once or twice tops and can get a kill, the melee is pretty powerful.

"Results may vary." From comparison with weps in other games, I believe the game designers made a mistake in not increasing its hit points. To kill a guy with full health, you need three or four hits firing a normal bolt. It should be two hits. I do like the modded caster I found on one of the TX servers. It was a clone of the caster in Jedi Academy, it fired a flat shotgun blast of bolts. That makes it a more useful and more enjoyable wep. With tweaking, the standard wep could have been a success.

Not to take away your achievement with it. That's deeply impressive. When I'm in repcom, I'll be sure to be on your team.

It seems to me though, If I rush in close and can get one bolt to their head or chest, I can meele once then ill get a kill.

"That's what we here at Frang Industries call SKILL son!! We're thinking of opening a Bowcaster Division, you want to come work with us?"

All kidding aside....wow, man.

For the average player, the caster is an indifferent wep. You've gone and turned it into the ultimate finesse wep by your skill as a player.
