Pirates Vs Ninjas Pack Crossbow is part of the Pirates Vs Ninjas Pack.

You must own the respective gamepass in order to purchase the Crossbow.

Not to be confused with the Compound Bow.

Basics Edit

The crossbow is a projectile weapon that costs $10,000 and requires the Pirates vs Ninjas gamepass to purchase. The crossbow fires bolts which are affected by gravity the longer they're in the air.
The crossbow is a very efficient weapon with great single target damage, excellent ammo economy, and high money drop. The only big downside is aiming for the head with a projectile weapon, which could be a deal breaker for most people.

Upgrades Edit

Strategies Edit

  • Since the crossbow has a high headshot multiplier, and you can only upgrade the headshot multiplier and not the base damage, hitting the head is strongly advised to maximize damage.
    • This may prove difficult as the projectiles have travel time and are affected by gravity. Purchasing HV Bolts can help alleviate both of these problems.
  • Just like Flintlock Rifle and other single shot rifles, if the crossbow stops one-headshotting normal zombies, then it is advised to switch to a different weapon.
  • Getting ≥50% magazine size bonus through perks and mods (e.g. a level 4 Deep Mags) will increase the magazine size of the crossbow from 1 to 2. This is extremely helpful as the full magazine is loaded all at once, effectively halving your reload downtime.
  • Due to the latent nature of projectile weapons, a bolt from a Crossbow will sometimes phase through a zombie dealing no damage. Aiming down sights is recommended to reduce the chances of this happening because projectiles fire from the tip of the weapon.

Trivia Edit

  • This is the first projectile weapon that is not explosive. The others being Ice Rifle and Compound Bow.
    • Flare Gun may only have an initial blast radius of 4 studs, but it's still an explosion of some sort.
  • With a fully upgraded Skull Breaker upgrade, the crossbow can deal 2400 headshot damage.
