Why didn't Archer kill Berserker?
>>
>>154606000
He couldn't got all out.
>>
>>154606000
He did not want to.

Archer is shirou from the Iliya route.
>>
Watch the superior DEEN adaptation to understand their fight
>>
>>154606000
Also, he didn't have a way of restraining/blocking/distracting Berserker and blasting him from range at his leasure.

To use video game terminology, Archer is a glass cannon. He works well with sneak attacks or from range, but he can easily get overpowered in hand to hand combat.
>>
>>154606495
yeah, that's totally why he goes everywhere with swords
>>
>>154606514
Well, he is a man that loves swords after all.

Archer is noted to have incredible defense with his twin swords, but when he is blocking his opponent's blows he isn't doing anything useful with his Projection ability. He is against the ropes against Lancer and can only start using bigger moves when Lancer gives him some room, HF Shirou also couldn't use Projection against Kotomine because that would leave an opening and he would instantly die. On that end, walking aroudn with swords for self defence is not utterly stupid, but that's not where Archer shines.

In Hollow Ataraxia he finally uses his bow exclusively and murders the protag a number of times.

>>154606000
Because Fate is poorly written.

Don't you guys ever get tired of asking and answering the same questions for over 10 years?
>>
>>154606000
He didn't have Saber to power his Caliburn and his imitations can't measure up to the genuine article.
>>
>>154606514
>>154606616
To add to that, apparently Archer favors K&B so much that not only he managed to create a special move with them, but he can actually summon them without leaving an exploitable opening.

But then, why doesn't HF Shirou summon K&B against Kotomine? While HF Shirou has most of Archer's skill, he can only copy his affinity with K&B he's summoned them.

So HF Shirou can use the six sword cut, which require comboing K&B projections once he's summoned K&B, but that first summoning will leave an opening.

>why doesn't HF Shirou summon K&B against Kotomine?
Because it would literally kill him.

Can this guy can literally one-shot Herc?
>>
>>154606000
>Shirou kill Herc multiple lives with 1 Caliburn
That was Saber.
>>
>>154606000
Archer can't project Caliburn. Shirou needed Saber's memory to project it in Fate route, and it was a one time thing like projecting the gem sword in Heaven's Feel
>>
>>154606710
>But then, why doesn't HF Shirou summon K&B against Kotomine? While HF Shirou has most of Archer's skill, he can only copy his affinity with K&B he's summoned them.

He was way beyond his limit by that point. Digging into Archer's memory in Sparks Liner High nuked his brain the moment he understood the meaning behind Triple Linked Crane Wings.

Projecting fake!excalibur immediately after beating Kotomine killed him, but his body continued swinging. If he tried K&B against Kotomine, he would've died right there.

>>154606616
He was effectively invincible while defending that bridge from the high ground spamming Hrunting. Without a surprise Rho Aias to tank Hrunting, as well as Shirou's prior knowledge of previous loops, and a command spell assisted Saber charge, they wouldn't have breached his defeense.
