History
Introduced Patch 2.4.2
Last Adjustment Patch 15.30
Vaulted Patch 3.0.0

Cupid's Crossbow is a limited-time bow in Battle Royale. It acts the same as the original Crossbow, except it has different sounds and texture, and it is only available in the Epic variant, originally also Rare. It uses Arrows as infinite ammo, has a headshot multiplier of 2.0x, and it reloads every arrow, after each shot, like the Pump Shotgun. It is now only available in Creative.

It was added in Patch 2.4.2. And it lasted until the Season 3 release, where they added the classic Crossbow.

Cupid's Crossbow returned for a week in Patch 7.40, to celebrate Valentine's Day. Strangely, the Cupid's Crossbow hasn't returned in the 2020 Valentine's Day.

Surprisingly, on Patch 15.30 the Cupid's Crossbow, together with the Crossbow, got Reworked. Now dealing less damage but having a faster fire rate, while the headshot multiplier was decreased from 2.5x to 2.0x.

Cupid's Crossbow returned a week later on 11th February 2021 to celebrate, once again, Valentine's Day. Cupid's Crossbow got vaulted once again, a week later, on 18th February 2021 due to the Valentine's event being over.

Strategy

  • The Cupid's Crossbow's arrows are slower and curved than sniper rifles bullets, so you have to predict better where the projectile will land, before shooting.
  • For this weapon, ammunitions aren't a problem, because arrows are infinite.
    • Of course for this advantage, it has some downsides. In fact it shoot and reload slower than other semiautomatic sniper rifles, and after every arrow, it has the reload animation of the next arrow, like the Pump Shotgun and Lever Action Rifle.
      • To bypass this last, you just have to switch to an another weapon and to re-switch to the crossbow. In fact thanks to this method you can do "Double-Crossbow".
  • Cupid's Crossbow is able to eliminate a 150 and a 200 shielded player in just 3 shoots.
    • In headshot damages it will need just 2 shoots.
  • The Cupid's Crossbow, together with the Crossbow and Fiend Hunter Crossbow, are useless to destroy structures, due to only dealing 1.
  • The Cupid's Crossbow is slightly less silent than the Crossbow, due to its numerous different sounds, however missing one or more arrows won't make your position on risk.

Trivia

  • Before Patch 15.30, the Cupid's Crossbow was able to deal 197 on a single headshot.
    • However, at the cost of this damage, the Cupid's Crossbow was one of the slowest weapon in game, even slower than the Pump Shotgun.
  • Originally the Cupid's Crossbow was simply called crossbow, but it was changed in Patch 3.0 due to the addition of the actual Crossbow.
  • Cupid's Crossbow was added back into Battle Royale as a Valentine's Weapon.
  • It is the only weapon in Love Shot LTM.
  • It uses the texture of the Heartbreaker crossbow in Save the World.
  • There is no difference between the Crossbow and this weapon. It uses the same AI.
  • Strangely the Cupid's Crossbow is not available in the Unvaulted LTM.
  • This weapon is similar to the Lever Action Rifle, dealing more damage, having a 2.0x Scope and being more silenced.
    • Of course it shoots slower, has a smaller magazine size and an overall longer reload time.
