I wouldn't go on about it to pharaea as they can't seem to have a conversation without getting defensive and misinterpreting what you're saying.
Very true, I'm getting myself worked up for nothing. At least there are some reasonable folks around who do understand.

I find this forum's stance on compromises mind-boggling, honestly. I said there should be both, from the start, but screw me I guess.

I'm fine with the compromise of allowing the player to use either. However, when it comes to cutscenes characters will normally default to a particular weapon. So, it begs the question what would Lara's default weapon be, as there would have to be one? I guess you could have Lara's default loadout be both the duals and the bow and then in cutscenes she'd use either depending on what would make the most sense within a scene.

That's exactly what I was talking about, for those scenes and the iconography the duals make the most sense (to me) given she has put her survival arch to rest. It gives the impression of change, maturing towards a defining character.

Compromise 2.0: Make her use the bow when you're supposed to be stealthy, the guns when it doesn't matter that much (ie when she's in immediate danger / already been spotted or fighting against creatures like the Yaaxil or Deathless). Could also work as a gentle suggestion re: how to go about certain situations, and even show she's matured by not making her so impulsive.
