Crossbows are alternative versions of Bows that also consume Arrows, along with being able to consume Firework Rockets. Unlike Bows, Crossbows must first be fully charged in order to be fired, afterwards the Crossbow must be used again to fire the Arrow/Firework Rocket. The damage a Crossbow can deal varies, and the damage values seen below is the average damage from a Crossbow shot. All Crossbows take 1.25 seconds to fully charge. Crossbows can also be used in the offhand without the need for the Brace enchantment.
