Crawlers and Stalkers can be INCREDIBLY annoying if no one prioritizes them, though. You'd expect that Commandos would focus on the Stalkers, but they tend to not care and just spam the bullpup at everything. So the Stalkers get behind you and whack you while you're sniping. VERY annoying...
I don't have a problem with Stalkers Since I can see there cloaking even as a beserker just lesson for there noises and if you have really good eye site you can see them coming at you. Also look at the floor for there shadows.
Sharpshooters deal low single target damage with the crossbow?
You just need to learn where head shot hit box is located (shooting them in the "head" is not enough).
A scrake dies in two head shots while using crossbow (yes, even a suicidal scrake in a six player game die from two head shots by crossbow). Buty is (unless you have high perk playing easier game) your first shot will not even set him off. This actually make sharpshooters one of the best to take out scrakes.
If you claim you need more than 10 shots with the crossbow sound like you are missing his head hit box. If my math is correct you need:
12 body shots
1 head shot and 3 body shots
2 head shots
...to kill a scrake on hard setting using crossbow w/ sharp shooter perk rank 4
Ok. I will type this one more time.Math doesn't count when you OBVIOUSLY shoot him square in the head
Still, if we simple players have to start calculating and thinking about "shot hit boxes" while killing zombies, then something is wrong with the game.His "head shot hit box" is not always the same as his visual head.

If I hit a zombie in the head, it should be a "head shot".
I really don't care for anything much more complicated than that.
It "may be" more complicated than that, but it shouldn't be.
Besides, I don't see much evidence regarding the "shot hit box" - does anyone else know about this? Confirm/deny?
Didn't Tripwire fix issues regarding "head shots" in update 1 or 2?
Good guide, but uhm, it's called a lever action rifle or hell, just call it a rifle. "Action rifle" is meaningless, since all firearms have some type of action--pump-action, semi-auto, bolt-action, lever-action, etc. Not to mention that it sounds silly.
Mm.. Yes, but if you miss you will "only" stun him (this is actually really powerful and can be used tactical to stop zeds from advancing which buy you and your party time). You need 3 LAR shots to the body on Hard to kill one, even more on suicidal. Not really worth it. Atleast not if there is a berserker infront of you just waiting for anything to live long enough to hit his chainsaw....also gorefasts are high prriority since aiming at his missing lower jaw will be instakill headshot mos of the time.
Agreed. Well, unless you can kill a string of maybe 5 crawlers with one arrow that is....also while crawlers are high priority targets no matter what, you should NOT be wasting xbow ammo on them, its best using 9mm or if you are in a rush, the rifle or handcannon(s)
Two accounts? Imbaoh and BTW I am lv5 sharpshooter and lv4 sharpshooter on both of my accounts and yes, I know how to use him
Ohh. Interesting.I dont use ANY other class for patriarch ever and dont even need those badass handcannons anymore
