Basics Edit

The crossbow is a projectile weapon that costs $10,000 as well as the Pirates vs Ninjas gamepass to purchase. The crossbow fires bolts which are affected by gravity the longer they're in the air.

Strategies Edit

  • Since 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 this is a projectile weapon and the projectiles are affected by gravity. Purchasing HV Bolts can help alleviate both of these problems.
  • Just like Flintlock Rifle, if crossbow stops one-headshotting normal zombies, then it is advised to switch to a different weapon.
  • A level 4 Deep Mags perk 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 halfing your reload downtime.

Trivia Edit

  • This is the only projectile based weapon that is not explosive.
    • Flare Gun may only have an initial blast radius of 4 studs, but it's still an explosion of some sort.
    • Due to the latent nature of projectile weapons, a bolt from a crossbow will sometimes phase through a zombie dealing no damage. This is uniquely a handicap for the crossbow as other projectile weapons still have a blast radius when missed.
  • With a fully upgraded Skull Breaker upgrade, the crossbow can deal 2400 headshot damage.
