If you are new to the world of Minecraft, then you are in the right place! We are here to tell you about Crossbow, which is one of the familiar items in Minecraft.
The ranged missile that uses arrows and fireworks as a bullet is known as Crossbow.
The crossbows use iron in their crafting recipe. However, they cannot smelt into iron nuggets. Similar to bows, yet they take a more extended time and more powerful (shooting farther with the mostly higher accuracy). The firework rockets or arrows can be fired after fully charged. Afterward, the player speed returns to normal. They can be placed in another inventory slot or into an item frame.
