The bowman is currently set-up to get 15 arrows. The arrows will do much less damage then musket or rifle balls. The only back-up weapon the bowman receives is a knife.

Shouldn't they do more than or as much damage as musket balls? I mean i'd rather have soft lead in my leg than a rigid arrowhead. Although I dont really know the real life deaths in 1812 caused by arrow wounds.

Bullets travel at a much higher velocity than arrows and therefore apply more force when hitting a target. The soft lead ball flattens out on impact causing it to transmit more of it's energy into the target and it smashes bone on it's way through instead of just clipping it as an arrow would. Therefore, bullets get more more pierce and damage points in the game. This is the way it has always been in the other modules that have both firearms and arrows such as "With Fire and Sword".

Hey, can't you give 30 arrows for the indians? 15 is too few.

Considering the much faster rate of fire of the bow and the fact that arrows can be retrieved after they are fired and used again, giving 30 arrows per bowman would unbalance the game in our opinion.

I agree. In a line battle that'd be no we're near enough. Would there be a way to refill arrows?

The phase II patch testing was useful and fun. Native Bowman needs a power draw nerf  ::)
Thanks to Dorf, the 27th, Panini, USADominic. You guys rock.
