The good news is we’ve got the stats, and today we’ll go over everything you need to know about how much damage the Crossbow does in Fortnite Battle Royale, including its firing rate, magazine size, and reload speed.

How Much Damage Does the Crossbow Do?

The Crossbow is by far one of the deadliest weapon to make its way into Fortnite Battle Royale. It released alongside the latest patch, which also brings in the new Valentine’s day event. Make sure to check out the patch notesfor V.2.4.2 to find out what all has changed in the latest update.

As we said above, the Crossbow is an excellent weapon for those who want access to high-damage, but low noise weaponry. It’s a completely silent weapon, which means your enemies will have no idea where you are when you shoot them. You can currently find the Crossbow in two different rarities, and each rarity offers its own perks. We’ve outlined the stats below, so take a look to see just how much damage the Crossbow can pull off in Fortnite Battle Royale.

As you can see from the small tables above, the Epic version of the Crossbow offers almost 80 base damage, making it one of the most powerful weapons available in Fortnite Battle Royale right now. As far as bullet drop goes, the weapon works very similar to a sniper rifle, just without you having to worry about your enemies seeing the flash of the bullet leaving the sniper, or hearing the sound of the shot going off.

The Crossbow is a fantastic weapon, and a great addition to the game. If you want to get your hands on this weapon, then we suggest looking out for chests in attics and other hard-to-find places. These chests have the highest probability of dropping the Crossbow, so you will want to check them out as much as possible.
