This article describes a Pixel Gun 3D weapon. If you're looking for the same weapon in Pixel Gun World, see Crossbow (PGW).

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


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.


This weapon deals good damage (2 shots headshots), has a very low capacity, medium rate of fire, and decent mobility.


  • 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.


  • 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.

Equipment Setups

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


  • It's based on the crossbow used in medieval times.
  • This weapon (and its upgrades) used to have infinite ammunition and wall breaking properties along with the Wizard Wand (and its upgrades). These weapons were formerly known as "magic weapons"; however, due to community feedback, these properties were removed.
  • When you run out of bolts, a crossbow bolt is still loaded into the crossbow.
  • In Sniper Forts, this weapon is not allowed and this is replaced by one of your Sniper weapons.
  • In the current update, this weapon is 2 shot headshot maxed out. But when you upgrade this weapon to mythical, it becomes a 1 shot headshot.
