The Crossbow was a projectile weapon of the Middle Ages.


The crossbow consisted of a bow mounted onto a wooden stock. When spanned, the bowstring is held in place by a notch. When the trigger is lifted up, it pushes the bowstring from the notch.


The crossbow was widely used due to its accuracy, its ease of use, and ability to pierce armor. The main drawback of the crossbow was the long time it took to reload, often requiring the use of a crannequin.
