Crossbows are ranged weapons available in State of Decay 2. These weapons are silent and therefore do not attract zombies the way using firearms does. They also do not jam or break or wear down with prolonged use. They typically require reloading after each shot.

There are two different ammo types used for crossbows: bolts and light bolts. Both can be manufactured at a Work Area. Unlike all other firearm ammunition, bolts can be created without a Facility Mod. There's also a chance to retrieve bolts after firing them.

Killing Plague Zombies with crossbows will have a higher chance of yielding a Plague Sample compared to other methods of dispatching them.
