The Crossbow appears in the mission "WMD," which is set in the Ural Mountains, 1968. The crossbow can fire two different types of bolts, including normal or explosive bolts. It also has an attached sniper scope, which the player can steady and also zoom in further. The Crossbow also appears in the mission "Executive Order" for a short amount of time with a Variable Zoom scope. The Crossbow has fairly high hip accuracy, and although it is fairly strong, to score a one-shot kill the bolt needs to hit an enemy's head or chest.
Unlike other scoped weapons, the crossbow can be reloaded while aiming down the scope.
