—Weapon description in the Gallery

The Crossbow is a Sniper weapon in Pixel Gun 3D introduced in the early updates.

Description

It is a simple wooden crossbow that shoots arrows. This weapon deals good damage (2 shots headshots), has a very low capacity, medium rate of fire, and decent mobility.

Appearance

It is a wooden handheld crossbow with a gem bow stretched around it. It appears to have a gem tipped bolt loaded into it. There is a small gem ring around the handle.

Performance

Current

This weapon silently shoots arrows with diamond tips with instant bullet travel time, although the bullet comes out of the gun half a second after firing. Despite this weapon being in the sniper category, it has no scope that allows it to fight in long range.

It uses the single-shot system so it has no reload animation. It has no delay mechanics either.

Former

Formerly, it shoots an arrow with wall break. It also had infinite capacity, large damage and a very large hitbox.

Strategy

Tips

  • This weapon is very good for ambushes as it does not make much noise.
  • Use it to weaken/finish off targets.
  • Aim for the head to maximize Efficiency per shot.
  • Time your shots as this weapon has very limited ammo.
  • this weapon also has manual guidance. But, as a result of the extremely fast travel time, you can only slightly curve the bolt

Counters

  • Pick off its users from long ranges.
  • Stay in a medium range far from a player equipped with this, try not to get close.
  • Its users can be easily picked off from long ranges
  • Due the users are fast and can approach you quickly. Use a high fire rate weapon in case they are making uncommon movement patterns whilst approaching you.
  • Use area damage weapons to easily destroy users.

Recommended Maps

Equipment Setups

Use weapons with the ability to Rocket Jump to find high and hidden places, then use the Crossbow, to shoot your enemies.
