History
Introduced Patch 2.4.2
Vaulted Patch 3.0.0

Cupid's Crossbow was a bow in Battle Royale. It acted the same as the original Crossbow, except it has different sounds and texture, and it is only available in the Epic variant, originally also Rare. It uses Arrows as infinite ammo, has a headshot multiplier of x2.5, and it reloads every arrow, after each shot, like the Pump Shotgun. It is now only available in Creative.

It was added in Patch 2.4.2. And it lasted until the Season 3 release, where they added the classic Crossbow.

Cupid's Crossbow returned for a week in Patch 7.40, to celebrate Valentine's Day. Strangely, the Cupid's Crossbow hasn't returned in the 2020 Valentine's Day.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

  • The Cupid's 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 Cupid's Crossbow, together with the Crossbow and Fiend Hunter Crossbow, are useless to destroy structures, due to only dealing 1.
  • The Cupid's Crossbow is slightly less silent than the Crossbow, due to its numerous different sounds, however missing one or more arrows won't make your position on risk.
