The Crossbow is a ranged weapon that utilizes crossbow bolts as ammunition, it was added to The Forest in v1.10.

Gameplay

The crossbow is a very dangerous weapon. It has a high damage as being able to 2 shot cannibals and get headshots to instantly kill them. The crossbow cannot be crafted and must be found in an underwater cave located west of the tree of life and just under an island. You will also find schematics for the church, cross, and coffin in the cave as well as some bolts to the crossbow. bolts also cannot be crafted and must be found, they can be found stuck in the side of a broken ship on the island near the cave, at the top of a cannibal tower in a small village next to a pond, and in the cave along with the crossbow.

it is relatively easy to aim with as when you close in to fire (right click) aim with the target you wish to hit being about half an inch above the crossbow on screen, depending on the distance. it is incredibly accurate. there is a glitch with the crossbow where sometimes you cannot retrieve the bolts if they hit an enemy or animal, same with the bow.

Location

It can be found in the Shipwreck Cave, under the Ship Drawing and next to the first schematic.
