Minecraft Combat Test 6 – Bow Aiming Testing (Raw Footage)

This is raw footage of me shooting at a big target (with extra camera zoomed in so you can see where it hit.)

I tried out the new bow ‘wobble’ mechanic where after a while the bow starts to shake up and down and your accuracy goes down, it seems that it doesn’t make too much of a difference, however there’s a noticeable distance at 50+ blocks, you’ll still most likely hit or come close to hitting.

If that’s a good thing, that’s open for discussion.
I do like the wobble, it gives you an incentive to draw your bow as late as possible and you can’t just camp with a ready’ed bow, if you want to camp, use the crossbow, even though its max damage output is on average lower without enchants.

I am using a Datapack to get the beautiful numbers to show on the arrows showing the scores.
You can download the datapack here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GZiJ4Np5-9o
Do note that it is broken in the 1.16 Combat Test pending snapshot! I made a temporary fix for it, if you really want it let me know and I’ll make a download for it.
