The Crossbow in Warzone is a difficult but rewarding Marksman Rifle to use that requires the right attachments to take full advantage of. So, here is the best Crossbow loadout to use in the battle royale.

The Crossbow has been largely ignored in Warzone, but since the Season 4 update, the devs secretly buffed the weapon. It’s one of the best one-shot weapons in the game, so long as you use the right attachments.

Here’s the best Warzone Crossbow loadout you can use, including all the attachments, Perks, and Equipment to run.

Best Warzone Crossbow loadout attachments

  • Optic: KR Minitac-40 Riser
  • Laser: Kimura RYL33 Laser Light
  • Underbarrel: DR-6 Handstop
  • Bolts: Blastcap 20″ Bolts
  • Wire: 28-Strand Cable

The most important attachment in the best Warzone Crossbow loadout is the Blastcap 20″ Bolts, which give the weapon its one-shot capabilities. With these explosive bolts, you don’t need to worry about where you hit the enemy. No matter where your bolt lands, it will stick and explode, downing any Operator with full health and armor.

Next, the Kimura RYL33 Laser Light and DR-6 Handstop provide a much-needed mobility boost to aim down sight, sprint to fire, aim walking, and general movement speed.

The 28-Strand Cable Wire is essential for improving bullet velocity so you don’t have to account for much drop, while the KR Minitac-40 Riser Optic is mostly up to preference.

After the secret buff in Season 4, the Warzone Crossbow has become a viable long-range option in the game, and you’ll want to give it a spin before it’s nerfed. I found a lot of success with this loadout, which maximizes its potential and retains some mobility.

Best Warzone Crossbow loadout Perks & Equipment

  • Perk 1: Double Time
  • Perk 2: Sleight of Hand
  • Perk 3: Tempered
  • Perk 4: High Alert
  • Lethal Equipment: Semtex
  • Tactical Equipment: Smoke Grenades

For this Warzone Crossbow loadout, we’ve opted for Double Time and Sleight of Hand to ensure you’re quick on your feet and always ready to let a bolt off.

Next, Tempered is a must in Season 4, as it allows you to plate up with two armor plates instead of three, making it much quicker to reach full health. Lastly, High Alert gives you intel on when you’re being looked at, as well as the direction of the enemy, which is great information in the battle royale.

As for Equipment, to match the style of the Crossbow we’ve gone with the Semtex, which is deadly if you manage to get a stick. We’ve also gone for the Smoke Grenades so you can get some temporary cover when you need it.

How to unlock Crossbow in Warzone

To unlock the Crossbow in Warzone, players will need to get 50 longshot kills with Marksman Rifles in multiplayer or battle royale.

This sort of challenge is much easier to complete in MW3’s multiplayer, so we recommend doing that with a Marksman Rifle such as the Kar98k.

Best alternatives to the Crossbow in Warzone

The Crossbow is a mid-range Marksman Rifle with a lot of power per shot, but if you’re looking for something faster and more versatile, definitely give the MTZ Interceptor a go. Or, if you’re looking for something with a faster fire rate, the Holger 26 is a great choice.

The Crossbow is all about precision, so make sure you have the best controller and FOV settings to maximize your performance.
