7 Days To Die Compound Crossbow
Do you like using the Iron Crossbow? Then you will love the Compound Crossbow which is a much more powerful weapon to take down zombies from a distance. You can get a Compound Crossbow by looting, buying from a trader or craft one on a workbench.
Combat Using Compound Crossbow
The most effective way to use the Compound Crossbow in combat is to take down zombies and animals from a distance. This powerful range weapon can take down big zombies with a clean headshot. This crossbow uses stone, iron and steel crossbow bolts as ammo.
You can choose the ammo to use by long-pressing ‘R’. However, remember that the crossbow is a slow firing weapon that reloads after every shot. That’s one reason you should be careful when using the crossbow against multiple enemies in close range.
