Although there are already some mods around that bring the Crossbows to the game, these mods do many unwanted edits and changes to the game's core files, which I didn't want for my game. Also, some of these mods, forgot to make their Crossbows fire the bolts quietly, without alerting the nearby Zombies. Unfortunately these Crossbows were not silenced, and were alerting the zombies as if they were... sniper rifles! Plus, these mods feature only a single crossbow. This disappointed me.
So, here we go. I made this mod, which adds, not just one, but two real Crossbows to the State of Decay, which behave and function much like any real crossbows out there: are powerful, are accurate, are steady, they include scopes for better aiming, and the best of all: are totally silenced! They make no noise at all! The bolts are fired quietly using the bow string, without alarming the nearby Zombies! With the Crossbows, you can sneak-fire your bolts quietly and kill the zombies, one by one, in your area, and without getting detected or exposed! They are truly an awesome sneak-killing ranged weapon and a must-have for your arsenal! :-)
This is NOT a cheat mod! The crossbows may be silent weapons that make no sound and do not alert the zombies, but this comes at a great cost: the crossbows cannot be loaded with more than one (1) bolt at a time, much like the crossbows in real life! They require constant reloading after firing each bolt. So, while their silent nature make them truly an awesome sneaking-killing weapon, their constant requirement for reloads after each shot, requires a strategic planning for when you go outdoors with them! Obviously, a crossbow is not ideal for big and heated fights with large groups of Zombies.
This is a realistic and very well-balanced crossbow mod! A must-have for your game!
The Crossbows have slightly different stats, although they share similar features and accessories:
