Both get a standard wooden bow with 15 steel arrows (No explosive arrows for Hawkeye or anything like that.). Legolas has his elven daggers, and Hawkeye has 2 combat knives. Who wins?
Did you see hawkeye miss in avengers did legolas shoot a chitari ship out the sky while aiming backwards? Theres your answer.
Hawkeye missed more than once actually, and he doesn't have his trick arrows here, plus it's just a basic wooden bow.
The only time I remember Legolas "missing" was when Gandalf broke the arrow, and when an arrow went through the King of the Dead.
@ULTRAstarkiller: He missed Black Widow twice during their fight onboard the Helicarrier.
He didnt miss for the rest of the movie IIRC. When he appeared to miss Fury, he was aiming for a computer so he could hack into the helicarrier and shut another engine down.
@steelhound56:Ya I thought so but I highly doubt legolas could of hit black widow, but I still think hawkeyes a better shot. If it goes H2H legolas wins but hawkeye wins archery.
Legolas didn't miss, so why wouldn't he have been able to hit Widow?
Hawkeye has the better accuracy feats for sure....
Why in your opinion is Clint a better archer?
I think this would be a great fight. They both have crazy good aim but id say hawkeyes is slightly better. H2H id give it to legolas barely because hes old as hell and has prob fought with weapons way more that hawkeye. So in the end id say Legolas after a good fight.
Wait, what?. That's far-fetched.. USB arrow?. He was already inside unless you meant the arrow that cause the explosion..
@Xanni15: Hawkeye shot a USB arrow onto the Helicarrier from another airplane, that's a pretty big accuracy feat
Hawkeye has better calculation feats--that's it.. He does have a variety of arrows and tricks, though.. Movie Legolas wins not by accuracy alone but being able to shoot first--he is faster and have never missed.. They are similarly accurate (though I'll give a slight edge to Movie Legolas) but it's true Hawkeye missed more than once against Black Widow (though the first shot shouldn't really count).. Maybe it was entirely due to plot or to Black Widow's finesse; it does not really matter except for missed showings..
@Xanni15: Just better accuracy feats. Casually shooting a flying vehicle out of the air without even looking at it is a huge feat for him.
I think he missed Widow because they've trained together for presumably years, and know each others tricks pretty well. Plus, Widow has always been better in close quarters than Clint. She used the environment to her advantage.
He also predicted Loki catching his arrow when he fired at him, and chose an explosive arrow for the occasion.
Then we have his shot from another ship onto the helicarrier turbine. Calculating or not, that's damn impressive.
Yes, Legolas never missed. But he was shooting at primarily stationary/ slower moving targets in the movies. I guarantee those Orcs/Goblins/Uruk Hai weren't moving nearly as fast as those hoversleds the Chitauri were using in The Avengers.
If Legolas wins, its not because of accuracy. It would be because of his superior physical stats allowing him to react faster than Clint could. Pure accuracy, I'd still say Clint is a bit better
You bump a thread over a year old with these specs "Both get a standard wooden bow with 15 steel arrows (No explosive arrows for Hawkeye or anything like that.). Legolas has his elven daggers, and Hawkeye has 2 combat knives. Who wins?"
And this is your answer?
Hawkeye is faster and is a better shot, he could tag Legolas with an explosive arrow I'm sure. Legolas may have better reflexes but he is a bit slow. But if this were the comics Hawkeye wins by a landslide.
legolas wins easily, he is soo fast and agile and soo skilful and graceful, and he has never missed, gandalf block his arrow though it was on target, and his elvish mind has a bit of spider sense, and he thinks alot more faster and his h2h combat, is the best i've seen in middle earth
I was thinking about this because I am buying a new bow and I know this is a bump from the dead.. But everyone in this thread said Legolas never missed. I want to point out he did miss. In the two towers when the orc with the big flair/torch came running to blow the black powder up, he missed. He shot him twice in the shoulders! Just before that scene he said you had to aim for the neck, their armor was weak their. Obviously he missed the neck, as a neck shot would have dropped his ass. Hawkeye did the USB shot.. that was beyond ridiculous and is easily the highest accuracy feat I have ever scene from any archer.
