What is crossbow in Minecraft?

The crossbow in Minecraft is a ranged weapon that fires arrows. It is under the ‘bows’ category, but is distinct from both bows and regular bows. The crossbow in Minecraft has 5 different types of bow string: stone, feather, flint head arrows haft, wooden arrows hafts 6 levels of strength for each material to power up the string.

Range of crossbow in Minecraft:

The range of the crossbow in Minecraft is equal to 5+level 2 blocks with normal damage level 0-5(see table below) higher levels give +1 block range per additional level. Damage varies between materials being used to power up the string on your crossbow in Minecraft. Wooden string does half heart damage or 2 hearts total critical hits on any material does 3 hearts critical hits. Stone string does 1-2 heart damage or 2 hearts total steel head arrow shafts do 4-6 hearts of normal damage.

Feather string does half of a heart (or 1 whole heart at level 0) with wooden arrows hafts stones are split in two so they do 0.5-1 heart of damage, flinthead arrows are normally deadly when shot with stone bowstring but do only the same as wooden bowstrings so always use feather bow strings.

Types:                   

Iron crossbow can be crafted without iron ingots in creative mode by using an existing crossbow and 10 experience levels, leaving you with an ironless working crossbow that acts just like a regular bow in Minecraft.

The crossbow in Minecraft also has a quick-shoot feature that shoots another arrow for half durability cost of the currently equipped bow string. All materials have this except flinthead arrows, which are only available by spawning them with / summon.

Difference between normal bows and crossbows:

Another difference between normal bows and crossbows is that they can be enchanted with Unbracing I normally your crossbow in Minecraft won’t break but still needs to be repaired occasionally, so keep some spare string at hand! Another enchantment you may want to look out for if you have surplus levels on your hands is Power V, it’s pretty rare but combined with Unbracing it will make your iron crossbow last forever or until you fall down from extreme heights or get killed.

How to make a crossbow in Minecraft?

  1. Find a crafting table and put it in your hot bar.
  2. Create a crossbow by putting the crafting table in the 3×3 grid and placing sticks vertically on each of the corners until you craft a crossbow.
  3. Load the crossbow by using this recipe: 1 arrow + 1 string + 3 iron ingots.
  4. To fire, hold down right click with an empty hand. If you wish to reload, you must have one arrow selected in your hot bar to load it into the bow’s chamber. Then select another arrow from your hot bar and left click where you would like to shoot. Keep doing this until you run out of arrows.
  5. To reload, place an arrow in the bow’s chamber and select another arrow from your hot bar and left click where you would like to shoot with the bow pointed down.
