Battle!

Although Merlyn prefers to use his regular arrows he does posses explosive, corrosive or other ones. During this battle he will have a jet pack like he sometimes has which gives him an edge in the air. He was trained by the League of Assassins and is a Green Arrow equivalent when it comes to shooting. Arthur King can easily dodge or catch projectiles with speeds of a fired arrow. King’s protection is his Kevlar suit that is also black to keep him hidden in shadows for stealth purposes.Related image

Barney posses a higher variety in the trick arrow arsenal. He is also a very skilled archer competing with Hawkeye although not his equivalent. Trickshot’s armor is just padded clothing and his training was by FBI and Trick Shot. He definitely has an advantage in acrobatics and agility since he was born into it.

With these stats we can clearly tell the winner without a problem. One is the equivalent to Green Arrow, the other comes close to Hakweye in skills. One was trained by the League of Assassins the other by the FBI. One has a Kevlar suit which arrows can’t pierce, while the other one has a padded suit. One can dodge or even catch fired arrows the other…..I think you get it already.
