The Crossbow has landed in COD: MW, which has introduces some new features, including UI tweaks to improve visibility in matches and five additional loadout slots for creating more Modern Warfare classes. But do you know how to get Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Crossbow? If you want to find the answer, then you are at the right place.
How to Get the Crossbow in Modern Warfare
Infinity Ward, who are the developers behind Modern Warfare, seem to be keenly aware of many of the requests that fans are asking for when it comes to the ever changing landscape of the game. With update 1.13, the developers are adding a fan favorite weapon back into the game’s online multiplayer: the crossbow. The crossbow is an unlockable weapon for all players, and thankfully unlocking the weapon itself is fairly easy to do.
The Crossbow is a totally new weapon included in the 1.13 Update, released on Jan. 22nd, 2020. The weapon has a mixed history with the series: some versions haven't found their way into many player loadouts in Call of Duty's past, but others have been so potent they've needed to be nerfed. It remains to be seen if players really take to this new version but according to the in-game description, it is "silent and agile, this high-performance crossbow fires 20.0 bolts with exceptional lethality." The Crossbow is an all-new weapon that fires a single deadly bolt. It works like a Marksman Rifle, but with a close-range bent. You can equip a Sniper Scope, but you’ll have to account for the steep range drop-off of the crossbow bolt.
Getting the Crossbow in Modern Warfare is a bit of a grind, but thankfully, it’s an easy one. All you have to do is get five kills using a Marksman Rifle with a Reflex Optic in 25 different matches. If you’re wondering why you have to use a Marksman Rifle, it’s because the Crossbow is actually the game’s fourth Marksman Rifle.
And there you have it! Of the three marksman rifles, the EBR-14 is the best bet for close-range, the MK2 Carbine is solid for mid-range, and the Kar98k will annihilate over long distances. An easy way to grab this is to jump into hardcore for as many matches as it takes as all marksman rifles are one-hit kills in this mode.
