Usage and history
Era(s)

Crossbows were primitive weapons used normally by archaic peoples with no blaster technology.

CharacteristicsEdit

The crossbows fired small arrow-like projectiles, known as spears[1] or bolts. The crossbow needed to be cranked via a windlass after each shot and had a slow rate of fire, although the lethality and accuracy of this weapon was not to be underestimated.

UsageEdit

Mostly primitive species, like the Ewoks of Endor used this weapon.[1] However, many professional assassins, hunters and sportsmen included modified versions of these weapons in their arsenal, as they were absolutely silent and perfect for hunting targets, whether for task assignments or sport.
