Using the crossbow

The crossbow is, in our opinion, a much better weapon than the bow - The Last of Us 2: Crossbow - how to obtain? - Combat - The Last of Us 2 Guide

The crossbow is, in our opinion, a much better weapon than the bow. Its main advantages are:

  1. You don't have to make big adjustments when aiming, of course, except in situations where you're aiming for very distant targets.
  2. You don't have to draw the chord before firing a shot. You can release the bolt as soon as you have aimed at your target.
  3. There is a better chance of getting the bolt back, even if it hit the opponent directly. Make a habit of checking the corpses of all those killed with a crossbow.
  4. The crossbow is a silent weapon. No one can hear the fired shot.

The biggest disadvantage of the crossbow is the long reloading time, i.e. the placement of a new bolt in the mechanism. Try not to miss and in case of detection, switch to other weapons.

Same as with the bow, crossbow bolts can be found around the levels - The Last of Us 2: Crossbow - how to obtain? - Combat - The Last of Us 2 Guide

Same as with the bow, crossbow bolts can be found around the levels. Try to maintain a full supply at all times.

Upgrading the crossbow

There are three crossbow upgrades available - The Last of Us 2: Crossbow - how to obtain? - Combat - The Last of Us 2 Guide

There are three crossbow upgrades available:

  1. Stability - 50 scrap - increases the stability of the weapon and therefore makes it easier to fire accurate shots.
  2. 4x Scope - 60 scrap - allows you to install a 4x scope, which is activated by pressing X. In our opinion, this is the best available upgrade, which should be bought as soon as possible. The 4x scope makes it easier to kill distant enemies, for example by aiming at their heads.
  3. Reload Speed - 80 scrap - also an important upgrade, which lowers the reload time of the crossbow by half. Especially useful when you plan to use the crossbow during all-out battles.
