The worst is how they unbalanced all the weapons to make it acceptable from a kale-chomping feminist perspective.

The assault rifle ought to really knock out any solarii with a shot or 3, but it seems to have all the power of a boy's rusty 22 rifle firing black-powder shorts, while having the kick of a BAR.

By contrast, the bow is just a killer. It nails everything. And, magically, the arrows do not drop from gravity - there is no trajectory curve at all. Anyone who has fired a bow IRL can tell you how it takes skill to drop those arrows onto target even at short ranges, because the arrows drop so fast.

Lara's axe was/is great for brain-bashing melee combat, but she should have dropped the bow as soon as she got a rifle.
