History
Introduced Patch 2.4.2
Last Adjustment Patch 7.40

Crossbow is a bow in Battle Royale. It is available in Rare and Epic variants. The Crossbow was Vaulted in Patch 4.0. however it was unvaulted for a limited time for Valentines Day on Patch 7.40.

The weapon eventually made its return for a short time in Patch 6.20 as part of the Fortnitemares event as the Fiend Hunter Crossbow, a crossbow without a scope and different stats, modified animation and a faster fire rate and larger magazine size. The Crossbow was added back in for the Fortnitemares event and Ice Storm Event, but was made unavailable again at the end of each event.

Soon the weapon was added back in Fortnite as Cupid's Crossbow. It had the same mechanics as the normal Crossbow with the exception of it being only an Epic weapon.

The Crossbow was unvaulted on June 28th for 24 hours, Following the Burst AR, this is the 4th item to be unvaulted in the 14 Days of Summer event.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Crossbow was added to Battle Royale in Patch 2.4.2. Originally, the Crossbow was skinned thematically to match the Valentine's Day theme. The skin was later removed in Patch 3.0.
  • Due to loot settings not being updated to reflect the then-current patch, 50v50 V2 allowed access to the Crossbow for a short period of time despite it being Vaulted. The loot for 50v50 has since been updated.
  • It was the fourth item to be Vaulted after the Smoke Grenade.
