Resarted playing this and i was wondering: are bows good in this game? I always used blademaster weapons until now...

From what I've read here they're great late game, but fairly weak in the beginning. Better to stick to other weapons instead.

They're on the slow side for sure, though they'll get the job done. They're better later when you have more armor skills and higher shot levels.
Stop reporting each other. Go post in other topics and chill. -spartan99ruler (Moderator)

I have read that they are worse in late game because they take forever to kill g-rank monsters

Yeah their dps is not the best. Everything takes forever to kill compared to the other weapon types, and the types that have low dps like bows (sns and maybe lance?) have very good defensive capabilities. Might as well switch to light bowgun or something if you want similar gameplay.

Edit: You can for sure solo most of the game (if not everything) with them, though. It's just gonna take forever.

nop they dont sucks i used them in late game and they are pretty good for farming the rajang g*** in only 20 minute and other monster

i think in early and mid game they clearly sucks cuz you dont have good armor set

the thing that make bow bad is the fact that you just have 50 power ammo.... its ridiculus compared to a hbg

you always need to hit the monster weak point if you want to deal serious damage but in late game with the g rajang set + black fatalis bow they are pretty gud the worst weapon is the sword and shield

I know that those are g-rank weapons against lr rathalos, but wouldn't the other g weapons do almost the same?
