…Ok, not really, but the recent crossbow changes which mentioned “model refinements” and “crossbow models are now smaller” is only a half truth.
It seems somewhere along the development changes they actually forgot to make the models smaller and due to the “refinements”, they are actually larger. More specifically, every crossbow other than Varun is roughly 2 blocks wider. This is because previously, the tips of crossbow arms could clip through cabins and armor parts allowing free rotation. That is no longer the case and they now have “proper” hitboxes which makes each side of the bow roughly 1 block wider. Understandable change as parts shouldn’t be clipping if it can be avoided, but the announcement mentioned “smaller models” and this is simply not the case.
Obviously, this is a huge problem. They are already very large weapons with low hp/mass ratios, a nerf like this severely harms their overall viability and should be changed:
• Either revert the change (which won’t happen)
• do as was advertised
Physical models of crossbows have become smaller, and now they correspond to their visual models.
…and actually make the models smaller… It wasn’t necessary before, now it is.
