It basically means you are firing from 1 block over; real archers don't have that restriction.

    it's a design flaw they seemingly didn't think about.

    Tried them once, knocked them out, never used them since.
    Try them backwards, big difference. besides, it's not like the enemy is shooting arrows back at you.

    Poles. I use Iron bars where the zeds cannot attack and poles or 1/4 blocks where they can. 1/4 center blocks and poles laid lengthwise will not allow the zeds passage but are very easy to shoot through and maintain the strength of Crete or steel. Capped off with a 1/2 block inverted gives you a clear vantage point to shoot them in the head or melee. I also use 1/2 blocks on the floor to give me a little more height.

    Huh, Arrow slits work pretty well for me. Dunno what you've been doing wrong.
