Can horse archer fire flaming arrows?
« on: June 11, 2019, 03:35:24 AM »
If their horse can carry a lamp to allow igniting the oiled arrowhead and shoot flaming arrows. Is this possible? Could foot archer do the same by carrying a lamp?

Pretty sure flaming arrows are not a thing. Siege weapons, like ballista and catapults, have been shown to have a fire option, but so far not bows.
I'd even go further and say that it would be great if we could have interactions with corpses
I'm sure our fellow necrophiles would love these features  :fruity:
:lol: :lol: :lol:

Oiled arrowhead would not make a flaming arrow. Flame would have been put away by the airflow almost immediately after leaving the bow. You need special arrow construction with special materials to make an flaming arrow and then it's still very clumsy and inefficient weapon with rather short range. Unlike in video-games, it's completely useless against people. It's use was almost exclusively in siege warfare and naval combat. Which brings me to your question:

Could horse archers shoot flaming arrows? In theory if they made hard enough effort probably yes. But you are not going to use horse archers in sieges or on the ships, so there was little reason to do so.

Well, everything is Turk. But that doesn't explain much.
