The Dual Hunter Crossbows is a Backup weapon introduced in the 16.8.0 update. It can be obtained from the Halloween Season Battle Pass.

Description

They are a pair of small pistol crossbows that fire arrows. It deals decent damage and has a decent fire rate, ammo capacity but low mobility.

Appearance

Each crossbow features a red/blue pistol grip, a wooden frame and wooden bow limbs, a magazine containing crossbow bolts, and a demon's skull covering the loaded bolt, and sight on top of the limb.

Performance

When the fire button is held, the user will fire each crossbow at different intervals. These arrows have travel time and have a chance to deal double the damage, as well as to disable the user's ability to jump for a short period of time.

When reloading, the player takes out the clips of this weapon and reloads off-screen.

It has Fixed Delay. This means that once the player switches from any weapon to this weapon, the Dual Hunter Crossbows will always have a pull-up delay lasting around half of a second.

Strategy

Tips

  • Use them with a high-powered sniper for finishing off crippled players.
    • You can also use them for a spray n' pray style on an enemy.
  • It's recommended to use this weapon for close-range combat due to its non-hit scan projectiles.
  • Aim for the head to maximize damage.
  • Go for the weakened players for better ammunition conserving and quicker kill registering.
  • Don't stop strafing and dodging while attempting to get a kill or while reloading.
  • It is effective against mobile enemies or enemies that jump a lot. When they are hit, switch to your Sniper weapon and aim for the head.
  • This weapon takes about 4-5 shots to kill but it is extremely inaccurate so be sure to aim properly and make each shot count, or you might run out of ammo.

Counters

  • Pickoff its users from long-range.
  • Area damage weapons and shotguns can quickly finish users off.
  • Strafe around the user while firing to avoid getting hit.
  • Try to wait until the user is out of ammo, then attack while they are vulnerable.
  • Engage its users in a long-range fight and then move in a confusing manner.
  • As it has travel time, use it to your advantage. Move quickly and jump frequently to avoid some of the projectiles.
