Crossbow

The Crossbow in Rust is a powerful, low-tier, ranged weapon favored by players for its ability to deal significant damage from a distance. This weapon offers great flexibility by allowing the use of two ammunition types: the High-Velocity Arrow and the Regular Arrow. With its capability to fire arrows over a respectable range, the Crossbow stands out as a reliable tool for hunting and combat.

Featuring a slower reload time compared to the Bow, the Crossbow compensates with a higher initial damage output, making it especially effective in ambush scenarios or when a stealthy approach is required. It's commonly used in combination with other weapons like the Waterpipe Shotgun, Eoka Pistol, or Nailgun for versatile combat strategies. The Crossbow also has the added advantage of being usable while moving at full speed, and players can maintain mobility while aiming and reloading.

For best results, aim for headshots to maximize damage and potentially achieve one-hit kills against unprotected targets. Precision and timing are key, as the slow reload can leave users vulnerable between shots. The Crossbow is equipped via the hotbar and reloaded manually after each shot. Finding the right moment to fire and positioning yourself strategically can change the tide of any encounter.

Whether you're a lone wolf or part of a team, the Crossbow is a valuable addition to your arsenal, excelling in situations that require distance and damage without the noise of a firearm. Consider crafting this weapon early in the game for an edge against both wildlife and rival players.
