The crossbow is a mechanically assisted bow which is used when more power is required, either to launch heavier projectiles or to launch more conventional projectiles over a longer distance. The bows are usually cocked with the assistance of a windlass or crank, but some use levers.

In The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Geralt can use small one-handed crossbows for the first time. He acquires the basic one from Vesemir in White Orchard, complete with costumisable ammunition. They are especially useful for hitting flying beasts like Ekhidnae or Griffins to bring them down to earth. There is quite a variety of weapons labelled as simply "crossbow" with an equally wide range of statistics.

Press the middle mouse button to let loose a bolt from your crossbow. You can also aim more carefully by holding the middle mouse button to aim and then releasing the middle mouse button.

In the Inventory panel, you can choose which bolts you will use with your crossbow. Some bolts have special abilities. The crossbow is a tactical weapon useful in certain situations. It does not deal as much damage as swords and Signs.
