The bow’s damage is higher than that of the musket’s, and a crit head shot will deal twice or triple damage. However, the musket’s damage isn’t as devastating as a head shot, and you have to be extra careful to avoid being hit by it.
The New World bow is a ranged weapon that can be very effective in battle. It delivers good damage, doesn’t require full charging, and has a high rate of fire. It can deal 170% weapons damage on long drawn shots, and can deal 100% weapons damage on short drawn shots.
The Musket is stronger than the Bow, but it also has a longer reload time. The Bow is also one of the two long-range weapons in New World, and rewards good aim with high damage at range. Ultimately, which weapon is better depends on your preference and style of gaming.
Both weapons are effective, but the bow is more effective in PvE. In PvP, it can hit harder and faster than the musket. Bow users can fire more than twelve arrows per minute. And unlike musket users, they don’t have to aim in a straight line, meaning they can shoot over walls.
When it comes to PvE, the Musket is more versatile and better at shooting from behind or into fortifications. It can also be used to finish off runners who have no hp. The musket is also a better choice when attacking from a distance, behind the tank, or from above.
Both weapons are effective against a wide variety of opponents. However, the firearm was faster and easier to use and fewer resources were required for training. The musket is more durable and less expensive to produce, and the bow’s disadvantages had to be exploited by trained archers. And as long as you were well trained, you can find plenty of bows that are more effective than the musket.
