I really want to bump the recurve bows damage up a few notches, can someone point me in the right direction? Thank you so much. I started modding a far cry 4 a few days ago, and I love the challenge of it! Thanks again in advance! For the record, I am extremely new to making mods myself. I really just want the arrow to do more damage!
You need to find the ark.fcb for the arrow (unlike guns damage for bows comes from the arrows rather than the weapons themselves)
The arrow for the Recurve should be 7678934758000.ark.fcb (the primitive bow has a matching primitive arrow)
Search through that for "flevel". It's default is 125. Increase this number.
Most humans have 100 HP so an arrow is more than sufficient to kill them BUT several types of humans (defenders, heavy gunners, etc) have armor modifiers that lower the damage. Stealth kills though boost damage so usually can still kill them 1 shot. Headshots generally do triple damage so again one shot (not heavy gunner cause of the helmet though?)
Animals have different HP from a goats and pigs with low health (60-80ish) to big cats with over a thousand and Rhinos and Elephants with 2-3K (approximately... I can't remember without looking them all up I know the Rhino has the most and its several thousand)
And all this science, I don't understand... It's just my job, five days a week
May I ask if you had any success on changing the bow's (arrows) damage? I for myself don't really get the ark.fcb stuff. Perhabs someone would be so kind and share a file, that we can include in our own packaging. For example, just a bow with twice or tripple the damage it does right now (to living beings ofc).
