The Crossbows mod is for players who’ve always wanted to see how well they’d fare as sharpshooters in Minecraft. The mod, as the name suggests, has been designed to implement various kinds of top notch crossbows into the game for players to utilize in order to take down anyone who stands in their path. The ability to utilize crossbows is definitely a step above from the usual melee weaponry of Minecraft and the bow and arrow so, all things considered, the mod’s definitely going to add a ton of depth to the game’s combat system as long as you can manage to utilize it properly.
Going into the mod’s specifics, the Crossbows mod implements a total of five different crossbows into the game, one for each vanilla material. However, alongside the different crossbows, the mod adds a variety of special bolts as well that you can utilize to wreak havoc on anyone or anything who stands in your path. Learning how to use the different bolts effectively can be a bit of a challenge, but it’s certainly worth the effort because, when you’ve mastered using all these different bolts, you’ll be able to deal with pretty much any entity in the game.
Perhaps the most impressive thing about the Crossbows mod is the fact that the bows can actually be upgraded over time and upgrades increase their functionality by a tremendous amount. You can get a variable zoom scope for better accuracy, an auto reload function to fire your crossbow like an automatic rifle, a tri-shot feature that’ll allow you to shoot three bolts in a row, and there’s even a reinforced limbs upgrade that prevents that crossbow’s durability from ever decreasing. Overall, the Crossbows mod is a top-tier mod that implements some insanely high-quality crossbows into Minecraft for players to utilize.
