Anybody want to try the Xbow?

You can currently get Xbow kills right now. All you have to do is rent a server and set the maps to Gun Master games. Under preset settings, set the Gun Master Weapons Preset to "Snipers Heaven".

For those that don't know, Snipers Heaven is basically as it sounds... you start with pistols, work your way through snipers... but the real prize is the Xbow, which replaces the grenade launcher near the end of the round.

For those that want to give it a shot, do a search for an Eastern US server called "Xbow GM". It's a server run by myself and a friend.

Have fun.

Oh... and I currently have 7 Xbow kills. NYAH NYAH!

That is sweet! Gealt and I tried to do an unranked match to mess around with it and were disappointed to find out you still need 4 people to start... maybe another night I will check it out.

It's such a nifty little weapon. You have to make that first shot count, however because the reload is like 5 seconds long.

It goes "zing" and you see ENEMY KILLED 100 appear.

At least that's my guess.

For those who have used it or seen videos: Do you appear on the map when you use the crossbow?

You know... I honestly don't know. Didn't think to find out.

I'd imagine not. Should be a silent weapon.

No one had mentioned it to me when I popped on earlier, so I'll say 99% doesn't show up. Takes about 3 and a half weeks to reload the arrows though, so pick your shots carefully
