Fire arrows aren't much better. :P

I don't believe there's a such thing as playing a game the wrong way.
They are against certain machines though. While others get owned by frost or shock.

Okay fine, playing extremely badly :D

I know. 
I have been using the fire ones whenever I can.

This is the way I want to do it!  :D

DerNebel

That's the absolute best way to play, Xev just doesn't understand though.
Yeah, I always knew Xev wasn't a real gamer.

Tearblast arrows are godlike though when you have like 100% extra tear from modifications. Plus some extra damage too.

Fire arrows don't do damage. But they fill up the fire meter in an enemy, once that's full it does damage. So you can mix up fire arrows and fire bombs or trip wires for example to do fire damage.

What you should do it scan the enemies, see their weak spots and weakness. Throwing arrows at random isn't a smart tactic. Look at weak spots, try to tear down the armour around them, or tear down the weekspots. They do more damage. Plus, use all your weapons, don't stick with just the bow and arrow.

when you shoot a fire arrow, they will have a little flame circle that each subsequent arrow adds to,  when it reaches its max the machine will respond to being on fire, which gives you a chance to either move further away, or switch to something with more damage while its doing its little fire dance.

Well I know about the fire. :P
Just sometimes does more damage not using them.

Leveling up won't help you against what keeps killing you. The best way to learn is work out their weaknesses and the best way to exploit them.

What difficulty are you on?
Leveling up helps a lot by adding more health. I played like 1/2 tau and just tanked damage cause I was op.

Never used anything beyond fire arrows and explosion tripcaster for damage.

Machines do so much damage  though that the health added is pretty negligable.

What so did you not use any shock or frost ammo?

Yes they are bombs

STarting health is 200 but max health is 700. That helped a lot for me. Plus upgrading the outfit with better mods.

NEver used ice, shock, or coruption. Just used the max boltcaster, default bow, mid tripcaster, and tearblaster. Never bought a slingshot or the machine gun like thing.

DIdn't ever use non tripcaster traps either. Just sold those for shards.

Why not? You're missing out on most of the combat system :o

You should at least try it

ice is amazingly strong when used right. you do realize it helps increase the damage an enemy receives right? ice em up, then hit em with the rattler. pure satisfaction.
