In appearance, the Crossbow is made out of wood, steel, and strings designed to be a single-shot crossbow that combatants can use in battle. Its primary ammunition is Crossbow Bolts, but other substitutes can be used as ammunition for the Crossbow as well, such as:
The weapon has no special abilities whatsoever and to make up for its lack of special ability, the players can use the scope mechanic to aim at creatures from afar.
The crossbow is barely anything special. It has no base damage and no special ability other than scope utility. Starting players may want to consider the crossbow, but it can honestly be disregarded in favor of the Pipe Rifle.
- The Crossbow is the only weapon in-game to have a 'diverse pool of ammunition' as of the Ratboy's Nightmare Update.
- It is the only ranged weapon from the Frontier's release that isn't a single-shot rifle.
