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

In The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Geralt can use small one-handed crossbows for the first time. He acquires the basic one from Vesemir in White Orchard, complete with customizable ammunition.

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.
