Description
The heavy crossbow traded speed and weight to provide extra range and power. As noted by Richard I's chronicler at the Battle of Arsuf "...the heavy croffbow entered the field, and yay did verily fuck fhit up."

The Heavy Crossbow is a special weapon for PAYDAY 2, introduced in Update #77 as part of the Gage Chivalry Pack DLC.

OverviewEdit

One of the highest damaging weapons in the game, the Heavy Crossbow is great for eliminating specials or delivering high-damage stuns and splash damage with Explosive Bolts. The extremely low rate of fire as a result of the lengthy reload and low total ammo require the player to make every shot count. A reliable secondary is essential for hectic encounters while using this weapon, as it lacks the ability to deal with close-range foes in a quick manner.

SummaryEdit

Pros

  • Very high base damage
  • Highly concealable
  • Large ammo pool
  • Uses an "automatic" firing mode, allowing it to benefit from Body Expertise and Lock N' Load

Cons

  • Low rate of fire
  • Single-shot
  • Cannot easily deal with multiple enemies at the same time without Explosive Bolts
  • Heavy projectile arcs requires careful calculations to land hits from medium range onwards
  • Special ammunition types cannot be recovered

TipsEdit

  • Due to its extreme concealment rating and high damage, this weapon is an ideal choice for low-profile stealth and/or Dodge builds.

TriviaEdit

  • The basis for this weapon is a 12th century arbalest or, as evident by its game file index, an arblast, a derivative of but practically different from the crossbow. Due to the similarities in basic design and concept, an arbalest could be loosely considered a heavy crossbow, though heavy crossbows aren't always necessarily arbalests.
    • The Heavy Crossbow is reloaded unrealistically fast as real arbalests took an average of 30 to 50 seconds to reload owing to their higher string tension. The pulley itself was designed to accommodate this, and required a certain level of physical strength to wind back to full, which would be realistically unlikely considering the slender build of many characters, chiefly two of the three female heisters.
  • The Heavy Crossbow unrealistically has 28 concealment, despite being a very bulky weapon.
