Just picked up a nice mod which turns the Unarmed into an actually viable character choice, with Perks and stats as well, and combined it with some roundhouse kicking animations and Duel Wield parries. So I guess now I can go back to my atrociously underpowered Futa Elf and play her right.
By the way, Red Tide and Realistic Ragdoll are must haves if your an archer. The first is some seriously impressive blood effects, while the second is exactly what it says. It comes in three options, the first being 'realistic' and the others having a slight increase. I chose the second. Gives the arrows enough punch to snap a head back before the body collapses.
And combine that further with realistic arrow trajectories and speed, better zoom, lower Stamina cost for zoom, spell/tech arrows, and my Archer playthrough is pactically Sniper Elite: V2. But not shit.
