Crossbow is a bow that was available in Battle Royale. It was available in Rare and Epic variants. It uses Arrows as infinite ammo and has a headshot multiplier of 2.5x. It reloads every arrow, after each shot, like the Pump Shotgun. The weapon was introduced in Season 3, and it remained in the game till May 1st, 2018, when, with the release of Season 4, it got vaulted.

The Crossbow was unvaulted on June 28th for 24 hours, Following the Burst Assault Rifle, as part of the 14 Days of Summer event.

Even though it is not available in Creative inventory, the Crossbow, along with Birthday Presents and Port-A-Challenges, is still obtainable in the mode via the travel through islands glitch.

The Crossbow has appeared several times on the Summer Splash event, in LTMs like One Shot, Fog Of War, Unvaulted and Arsenal.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

  • The crossbow's arrows are slower and curved than sniper rifles bullets, so you have to predict better where the projectile will land, before shooting.
  • For this weapon, the ammunitions aren't a problem, because arrows are infinite.
    • Of course for this advantage, it has some downsides. In fact it shoot and reload really slow, and after every arrow, it has the reaload animation of the next arrow, like the Pump Shotgun and Lever Action Rifle.
      • To bypass this last, you just have to switch to an another weapon and to re-switch to the crossbow. In fact thanks to this method you can do "Double-Crossbow".
  • Even having a headshot multiplier of 2.5x, it stills not able to deal 200. Ironically for just 1 damage for the Epic variant.
  • The crossbow, together with the Cupid's Crossbow and Fiend Hunter Crossbow, are useless to destroy structures, due to only dealing 1.
  • The crossbow is the most silent weapon in game, so missing one or more arrows won't make your position on risk.
