Usage[]

The Crossbow possesses high power, low speed, and a moderate ammo supply. The quiver starts with 53 arrows, normal arrow bundles give 26 arrows, supply chest bundles give another 53 arrows, and Surprise Gift bundles give 13 arrows.

Crossbows can be shot repeatedly if the ranged attack button is held down. Ranged weapons require the player to have at least one normal arrow or a special arrow from a quiver artifact in their inventory to shoot. Unlike bows, shots from crossbows cannot be charged.

Damage caused by the arrows can be increased with enchantments, the Strength buff, and certain armors that have ranged damage increases, such as the Hunter's Armor.
