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