Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek revealed what he thinks is the best all-around weapon in New World.
He then explained why it’s a good choice for everyone to be using, regardless of their skill.
Shroud thinks the bow is one of New World’s best all-around weapons.“Bow is really good,” he said in response to a fan who said it was bad.
There’s nothing wrong with the bow at all. It does a lot of damage. It’s got pretty solid mobility, it’s got pretty solid AoE. It’s all-around pretty solid.
He explained that it’s got good knockback, good slows, and good single target on top of that, too.
It’s not amazing at one particular thing, but it’s pretty decent all-around, which makes it kind of a fun weapon for me. I like being decent all-around.
Some players like the idea of using a ranged weapon, while others want to get up close and personal with all the action.
