Cannot damage warriors guarding treasure

Recommended Posts

I recently returned to the game after a couple months being away not being able to play so if this has changed please advise.

I was adventuring getting to re-learn the game when I came across some treasure maps and I was like sweet. I crafted and stocked up on gear and ammo and set sail for the islands these treasure maps were on. I arrived and spent a few minutes searching for the spots and finally I found them, just like before the soldiers arose from the ground and I waited for them to fully climb out of the ground when I started to shoot arrows into their chests and face. Each arrow I shot stuck into them but no damage was done, so I quickly ran and climbed the nearest ledge just out of reach as I fired arrows rapidly to try and defeat these enemies. About a minute of firing arrows I realized absolutely zero damage was being done. I then made a run for it back to the ship.

Not a bug, unfortunately. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

They patched out the ability to do damage to the armies of the damned with anything but melee and tames about a month ago.

Lots of people were initially upset by this (myself included), but most of them have left the game at this point.

Why is this nonsense?  Why put a bow and skills into the game then, especially they just added a crossbow.  They are basically forcing bear tames on people, because it is stupid to engage a mob with melee - you will get ganked in the back the sides and the front.

Because there was an exploit using swivel guns to level up ships, so clearly this was the only option.

Thank you, much appreciated.

That's almost, but not quite true.

v207.996

AoD are now immune to anything except gun (non-puckle), melee damage and tame damage.

 

You can damage them with guns, but it is still dumb that you can't damage them with bows.

I really hope it is possible to turn back in single player / custom servers. I didn't do maps yet, but if I learn I can't bomb them to hell with grenades, shot them with cannon balls, etc with my current settings... it will be extremely upsetting.

I stand corrected. I actually forgot that a few sidearms can harm them. I basically stopped using carbines and flintlocks once they made it melee/tames only, as I only ever used them to pick off archers.

It's not like the crossbow or bow would really be a viable main attack for 15+ zombies, the idea that they included them in the meganerf is beyond comprehension.
