Draw Details[]

Bow draw speed is dependent on the archery skill.

All improvised bows take 1.0 seconds to pull to a full draw, except when the play has no archery skill, the draw will take an additional 0.5 seconds counting that the full draw can be made.

The sway that occurs when the player struggles to maintain a full draw on the bow is decreased as the archery skill in increased.

The duration a player can hold a full draw before the arrow is automatically released is dependent on both the archery skill and the players strength.

Below are charts displaying, per bow draw weight, the correlation between these attributes.
Essentially, every 1 pound of weight reduces hold duration by 0.1 seconds, and every increase of 1.0 in strength increases hold duration by 1.5 seconds.
