The Crossbow is a ranged Weapon in Spelunky 2. It can be bought from shops, and a favorite of many NPCs.
The Crossbow is a ranged weapon that shoots a single arrow. This Arrow will function as if it was thrown with a Pitcher's Mitt, flying unaffected by gravity. Arrows must be retrieved by the player to reload the weapon, which then happens automatically when walking near potential ammo while holding the Crossbow.
Crossbows come preloaded with steel arrows, but may also be loaded with standard stone arrows. The crossbow found in the Stars Challenge is always loaded with an arrow of stone, and is the only crossbow that has this property.
When a steel arrow fired from a crossbow comes into contact with a wall it will remain lodged for several seconds before falling down. It is also possible to load a regular arrow into crossbow, which do not stick into walls, instead bouncing away.
If the crossbow is not loaded, it may be thrown like a standard item.
