    Default Do you prefer short, mid or long range attacks?

    Are you a manly man that gets right in the fray, a strategical minded player that stays out of the mix, or an indecisive player that can't choose?

    Me, I stick as far from the battle as possible spamming fire.

    I prefer long-range attacks if it's with a weapon I can manually aim with.

    In a real life I like to duck behind cover with something that will keep them as far away as possible.

    In a video game I like to get right up in their grill
    Kefka's coming, look intimidating!
    Have a nice day!!

    Give me a bow. No guns. No crossbows. No swords or halberds or magic. A bow.

    The cave after escaping the Midgar Zolom has Long Range Materia. Anyone can snipe in Final Fantasy VII.

    All goblin rituals serve a dual purpose as fertility rites, even the destructive ones. Especially the destructive ones.

    Well I usually give the long range materia to Cloud, my best fighter, so yeah, long range is best. If it's a giant bug on high graphical settings, long range with fire.

    Bows make a nice THWOK noise when you hit people with them.

    Bows are also how I learned to cheese Chivalry, Mount and Blade, and a few other medieval set games like that. Get good with the bow, and you can take out 20-30 people from a charging army before they can even get to you.

    I prefer to keep my enemies at a mid range for the most part depending on the game. Halo I was always a fan of using the DMR or Battle Rifle. I'd also covet the sniper rifle. In Call of Duty games I usually play with assault rifles.

    Destiny however has changed me. Destiny has made me love the close range. I'm the guy running around with a hand cannon and shotgun, I'm the dude whose in the enemies faces consistently and constantly. I still use sniper rifles and stuff in pvp but pve I prefer to go up close and personal.
