One-shot Crossbow loadout to disrupt Warzone meta after Season 4 buff
After receiving a buff with the Season 4 update, the Crossbow could shake up the Warzone meta with a one-shot kill loadout.
Warzone’s Crossbow has always been a tricky weapon to master, but a Season 4 buff has made it a dominant force capable of one-shot killing players with ease.
Modern Warfare’s Crossbow Marksman Rifle has been around since the inception of Warzone. The Crossbow is a unique weapon that has a steep learning curve, but even if players mastered the weapon, it never truly dominated Warzone lobbies.
All that is set to change in Season 4 after a major buff has upped the Crossbow’s bullet velocity by a whopping 27.2%. As a result, several Warzone players are now singing the praises of the unconventional weapon and tip it to shake up the meta.
Reddit user theGivvyOfficial posted a clip of their gameplay using the Crossbow to the Warzone subreddit. The montage is proof that with the right Crossbow loadout, the weapon can one-shot kill players from considerable distances.
The comments and discussion reveal that the title of the post is somewhat sarcastic, but there’s no denying that the Crossbow can be devastating in the right hands.
While it won’t necessarily be the number one meta weapon in Season 4, it has the potential to outperform some of the best medium-range options if players are looking to test out a different style of play.

This Crossbow loadout will thrive in the hands of accurate players. Thanks to the FTAC Fury 20″ Bolts that deal damage even after they hit their mark, the Crossbow produces one-shot kills consistently.
Of course, there’s no denying the weapon’s major weakness, and players were quick to point that out in the comments: “Yeah it’s s**** in close quarters combat. It’s decent for medium range engagements like you see in this clip,— It also has a steep learning curve.”
If you miss your shot from a short distance, the weapon’s brutally slow reload can put you in an unfavorable position. However, if you learn to master the weapon and hit a high percentage of your shots, the sky is the limit for the Crossbow in Season 4.
