Crossbows are a type of weapon in Fortnite: Battle Royale. The purpose of these weapons is mid to long range combat. Crossbows either have an infinite ammo reserve of Arrow - Ammo Icon - Fortnite.png Crossbow Bolts or use Medium Ammo - Icon - Fortnite.png Medium Bullets.

Functionality

Crossbows are unique in that they do not require ammo pickups to reload, instead using an infinite reserve of ammo. Due to this, they deal only 1 structure damage per shot. Crossbows fire a single fast moving projectile shot affected by gravity.

The Dual Fiend Hunters break this rule in that they use Medium Ammo - Icon - Fortnite.png Medium Bullets, and are hitscan.
