Reply To: Shooting at blocked enemies

no math to give but quite a bit of experience under my belt.

No, you don’t get to see the exact chance to hit a blocking target, but it’s inversely proportional to the chance of hitting the one that you actually shoot. There is a perk (Bullseye) that allows you to lower the chance of hitting the “blocker” by reducing accuracy penalty – see “how you build tour archer” thread for more info on that.

Simple answer: shoot first line. There’s always a chance that a missed shot won’t hit anyone at all, even if the intended target is completely surrounded by other enemies. So unless you want to nail a specific enemy (and, truth be told, you often do – prioritizing targets is one of the most important aspects of ranged combat) always pick the target with the biggest “to hit” percentage.
