Archers randomly survive projectiles from Huntsman perk with 8 health

9 2

I have noticed this a lot of times already. Threw a javelin at an archer with my throwables guy build which has huntsman. The javelin deals 50 to chest armor, so it should be a ohk, but the archer took 92 damage instead. I think it also happened to me as an archer too. Got hit by an arrow and survived with 8hp. Couldn't have been a recurve, because it deals 40 on light armor, not 46. Unless the huntsman is not intended to actually double the damage, since it just says "more damage" which would mean that archers were designed to survive with certain armors, I guess.

It doesn't actually double damage or multiply it at all. It just changes the value to the "huntsman" value. You can check the values here

So a longbow oneshots but a short spear doesn't. That's some bullshit. Someone had to manually enter those values. That's not only counter-intuitive and intransparent but also a complete waste of development time.

I'm really interested in the reasoning of 96 damage on t2 chests and 88 damage on t3. The numbers are surely highly sophisticated and serve a specific purpose.

So only the longbow and the crossbow ohk archers with tier 2 amor and above. That's why I don't use the recurve anymore. Thanks for the info, though.
