this honestly makes no sense especially for a server like cubecrafts bedock network. A player's forward momentum is always faster than what knockback from arrows can deal. Just block yourself off in the worse case or play smarter. Hardly anyone uses bows on cubecraft bedrock from my experience anyway

Bowspam them back.

Also, chaos has so many options to move across the map really fast such as pearls, leap feathers, and tnt (launch urself) which allow you to easily approach people who are keeping you away with explosive and punch bows. There are definitely ways around this type of bowspam, they wouldn't be in the game if there wasn't counterplay.

Is fiercely disagree with what you are suggesting.

Indeed bowspamming is annoying and I agree with you about that, but keep in mind that it's a tactic, just like a lot of other tactics. Banning people for spamming with their bow is a bad idea and it would ruin our gameplay if we were to ban people who are just spamming with a bow. Imagine banning people who are spamming with a sword or an axe, that just makes no sense sorry.

First of all bospamming is a valid tactic why would they make it bannable. Second of all even me as a mobile player can easily stay on a bridge while people are sniping me (non-punch bow) from up to like a 60 degree angle. Third of all, as @funkemunky said, you can strafe, or you could also tunnelbridge or ender pearl or jump bridge.

Yea it’s sometimes used but I don’t use it much I prefer to just rush, but I was playing eggwars yesterday and me and my teammates were tunnelbridgeing a bit bcs there was a dude with a punch bow, but as soon as I got the right angle I just rushed and once I’m hitting him he’ll be too distracted to snipe my teammates

It's not that hard to deal with bow spammers tbh and banning them makes absolutely no sense. You've just got to learn all the different ways to deal with them.

1) I find that few bow spammers can shoot well straight up, so... get in line with them (if not in line... get in line), build up (double ladder tower is useful for speed), godbridge over them, if they hit while you are bridging then if you're in line then they just knock you back a bit onto your own bridge and you can just continue to sprint forward and the god bridge carries on without having to restart it (mostly). I find few bow spammers move so that they're not in line with you and if they do well just move until you're back in line with them). Once you've bridged so that they're shooting up at a certain angle I find they're not great usually at shooting up. So either continue over them or drop and get them or for fun drop a stack of TNT on them.

2) If they're dumb enough to be walking across unsafe bridges, grab a bow and knock them off.

3) Tunnel bridge.. slow but works.

4) TNT canon them from an obs bridge (if you can get close enough). Just for fun as it can annoy them back.

5) Get in line with them (important), gotbridge a bit, throw up a wall builder on the end for some cover, throw up a ladder tower, godbridge a bit, repeat, easy enough to get over most of them.

There are plenty of other techniques that I can't think of right now.

I haven’t been on in a while, but I still am alright with it. There’s a line you cross in it of course, looking at if from my view as a skywars player. There’s the difference between me doing a quick 180 and firing two shots at my opponent is following me across the islands on castle or just getting to the other side and non stop firing. But this is just a part of the game because you’re taking so long to pay attention on trying to get them off that you leave yourself vulnerable especially in your blind sides. It’s a tactic that costs time, which is deadly in multiplayer games. So even if it can be annoying at times, I respect it if they do it in a quick amount of time instead of just camping the path, and just keep on doing your best to get to them if they do.
