7 Days To Die Iron Crossbow


The Iron Crossbow is a very effective long to medium ranged weapon that can immediately take down even tough zombies with a perfect headshot. You can get this weapon by finding it in different Loots, buy it off traders or simply craft it by reading the Iron Crossbow Schematic or by unlocking Archery Level 1.

Combat Using Iron Crossbow

The Iron Crossbow uses stone, iron and steel crossbow bolts, with the steel bolts of course being the most powerful crossbow ammo. You can select the type of ammo to use by long-pressing ‘R’ and selecting the ammo of your choice. Unlike the regular Bow, you can add the weapon flashlight and Scope mod on this ranged weapon. 

The Iron Crossbow has a slow firing rate and needs to reload after every shot. This makes the Iron Crossbow a difficult weapon when dealing with multiple enemies in close range.
