    After reading a lot of threads about this, especially from @Nobody. I have finally understood why the punch bow is so annoying. I played a game with @Anmazing and @TheJeroen and within 15 minutes, everyone had punch bows and were way too scared to attack. Camping is just the only way to win this game now and the Punch Bow is extremely OP. Now, I propose two suggestions to nerf this item. Either make the price very high, but the downside is it could promote camping even more and it will become just like diamond armour, or just remove it once and for all. If you agree with the prise raise, obviously some modifications will be required because people will still camp so they can buy it. The Punch Bow is the key to camping and if a player manages to get it within the first 10 minutes of the game, it can be such a nuisance. Answer the poll and tell me what you think should be done to the 'infamous punch bow.'

    Price Raise, it's useful when you are going to focus people, but on the other hand is annoying see people camping

    I love the punch bow, and i always will do, I don't use it for camping, i use it to make sure someone is hacking (e.g if someone runs across a bridge, and a punch bow hits them, it will pretty much always hit them off!

    Sorry, i would like the punch bow to stay! Thanks for the suggestion though.

    If you need any help, send me a PM <3

    Thanks, James Lawrence

    Keep the punch bow. It's the only way you win a 1vLobby

    Only staff members usually say that when they lock an answered suggestion thread. I don't think you should be saying that.

    Punch bow can do lots of thing, not just camping.
    With punch bow, I can kill a entire team by shooting them off the island, and I know how to dodge arrows and block arrows, so I seldom get shotted off.

    Eh. It's fine for me, but others may have different opinions.

    I quite like the punch bow, but I can definitely see where it may go wrong, and why people may not like it. Problem with it is that it is cheap, therefore increasing the price of it may stop the persistence of bow spamming.

    1 Stack of Diamonds for 1 punch bow should do the trick...

    They should just remove it. All it does is it makes people wanna not play eggwars. So, it should be removed

    Multiple reasons why it shouldn't



    Conclusion:
    It has shaped eggwars as it is now. Removing it would be hated by many and it's also one of the few easy ways to kill someone in OP without relying on armour durability .

    God no, in op eggwars the punch bow is a must as the alternative is gear breaking which is a nightmare with diamond gear and even more so with backup diamond gear also if you want it remived that bad buy a shield, also its only useful for shooting people off if people are camping, then power bows become the priority

    Ehh You can take on tons of people with good gear and enough skill. The punch bow helps but you can do it without one

    It should be kept, it is a big part of the game.
