Now this is one of the most important parts to learn about being a good PVP bow player. If you don’t move around much or become static in a bow fight, you will get headshot and die very fast. The trick is to keep moving no matter what and only stop to shoot your arrow.
With some practice you will be able to accurately shoot your arrow when only stopping for a second to shoot. There are a lot of different ways to abuse movement in Rust.You can run in one direction and then stop to make your opponent shoot in front of you as he is trying to lead the arrow.
This is great to do when you are reloading another arrow, run in multiple directions and stagger your steps so your opponent misses. Another thing you can do is strafe shooting. This is where you run in a certain direction again, but this time you only stop when you are ready to shoot your arrow.
Then quickly stop and fire a quick shot at your target before he can take advantage of the fact that you are static. Doing this is great to keep moving and not allow your opponent to have any easy shots on you, especially if they know how the stagger trick.
