About Crossbows

SMP and old download links here:

Version 2.0
You need ModLoader and ModLoaderMp

Crossbows 2.0 is here! Crossbows now fire differently than bows and instead of explaining how, why don't you just see for yourself ;) . Crossbows fire a greater distance than bows and some bolts do more damage than arrows. The order the bolts fire in is; Obsidian, Diamond, Glass, Blaze, TNT, Iron, Stone, Gold, Wooden. Blaze bolts light mobs on fire. Lava Bolts (Created by the Lava Crossbow) light everything on fire. TNT Bolts just explode :) and glass bolts shatter on impact but do more damage.

NOTE:I decided against making the crossbows enchantable, because that would mess with base files and I would like this mod to be as compatible as possible.
