Today Valve finally revealed the Sniper’s first new toy. The “Huntsman”. A bow that pins DEAD enemies to walls! The revelation however sparked great concern over whether it would offer an effect similar to the much despised sandman. The confusion seems to have come from one particular statement.

Any experienced sniper will tell you how irritating it is when your targets keep moving around. The question is how to stop these cheaters from wind-sprinting around like they own the place. And the answer is to pin them to a wall. How? With arrows!

Robin Walker has apparently replied to the thousands of emails he’s undoubtedly received after announcing it, saying this.

The Huntsman doesn’t have any stun-like capability. Killing an enemy who’s standing in front of a wall will result in their ragdoll being pinned to the wall.

So basically it will function exactly like the crossbow in Half-Life 2. No worries mate!

    I love how stun is the ONLY thing people have been worried about with the sniper updates.

    The Huntsman might do no damage and make you explode if you miss your target, BUT AS LONG AS IT DOESN’T STUN, IT’S THE BEST!!

    The Huntsman does look awesome though. It’ll be very fun to play with.
