No cc on every range weapon will make them 1 dimensional since the only goal these weapon can achieve is to deal damage as big as possible
Instead of having different type of ranged weapon, you will only have superior musket/lesser musket/musket with aoe/ faster musket/close range musket and i think anyone want that kind of situation

Not only are most abilities close range but there is no ability that’s viable at long ranges and basic attacks have limited range.
Okay. I do not know how to deal with what I said, that bow and muskets should NOT have any staggers abbilities, like other RANGED weapons. You have range advantage, and I hve to kill that distance, and when I do, I am still being pushed away and slowed and burned and whatever other shit it is … musket in current state is so broken, and not fitting in New World that I would totally remove the musket from the game.
Imagine the ingame economy turning upside down and countless player complaining about their investment turn into smoke just because bunch of player complain about musket PvP performance
Joke aside, things are not squeaky clean & smooth on the musket side as well. Low fire rate/specific build type/ heavily dependent on 2 core kill make it a must for you to kill your target in nearly every encounter (especially PvP) in order to maximize your role. Yet unlike other weapon (even bow), musket heavily punish it’s user even on the smallest mistake since you literally sacrifice your presence on close range due to very small investment on CON.
Even worse, musket damage window is around 12-15 second while you are pretty much hooked to the target that you shot with powder burn. This simply mean that you need to wait around 12-15 second if you miss/changing your target. Spamming LMB like other ranged weapon is not even an option for musket because this weapon deal crap damage without those damage bonus.
TLDR; if you see a good musket player, that’s because they got a blood contract in it.
