A type of a ranged weapon that is a cross between a bow and a gun. The horizontal bow-like muster is attached to the frame that is similar to the stock of a gun. With a crossbow, bolts or quarrels are shot out, which are very much like arrows. Though initially used for hunting and warfare, crossbows are now used for hunting as well as for target shooting and other shooting sports; however, it is no longer a weapon of war. As an outdoor gear, crossbows are quite famous to hunt down animals. As opposed to machetes or pocket knives, crossbows make a great tool for shooting from a long range. Hence, you end up with a nice piece of meat for your camp in the wild!
