Crossbows are a Weapon Category in Dark Souls and Dark Souls Remastered. Crossbows are ranged weapons that use bolts for ammunition, granting players the ability to modify elemental damage accordingly. They do not have a zoomed-in aiming capability like bows but can deal higher damage. Crossbows deliver thrust damage that is compounded with critical when the wielder pulls off a headshot, and can be used in melee combat by "shooting from the hip". Crossbows have no stat scaling, leaving players to focus on elemental upgrades.

  • Pros: Relatively lightweight. Deals heavy Thrust damage, very high base damage, good for players with Low Dexterity and suitable for elemental upgrades.
  • Cons: No aim function; not suitable for sniping, needs to be reloaded making one vulnerable to damage and backstabs without fighting back.
  • Recommendation: Leo Ring for Counter Damage.
