giving it to all classes is a bad idea...does it replace your primary or secondary? either way, for the first few weeks its gonna be one shot galore i can see many people raging...
Nice with the Glock, even nicer with the semi's and tech's but im the nicest when im clappin at my enemies neck's

I think it replaces an equipment slot. But it has a slow reload and low ammo, so it's balanced.

so, i'm confused guys, we can't have a .50 because 1 hit KO's is bad and hurting vehicles with a sniper rifle is bad, apparently.

yet the crossbow will be able to do exactly that, and has slow load times like a bolt action rifle would, can be equiped with high power scopes....

did I miss something here?

I dont understand why Recon players are unable to get OHKs within 15 meters, yet a crossbow can. Come on, that makes no sense.

In addition, its reload rate is not slow. It rivals that of a bolt action rifle.

There's probably a ton of... "Arrow drop", A .50 would be alot easier to kill targets at far range. Plus the load time for the crossbow would be significantly longer, I would imagine.

At least they didn’t lie by saying something like
“with the next map pack comes a chance to snipe with every class”

Yeah the Xbow is DICE's way of appeasing the crying recons. It literally addresses the three loudest complaints they've been bitching about since day one:

"Blah blah blah I don't want to work as a team cry cry cry here's what I want:
A weapon that is OHK, a ranged sensor that requires zero skill and a weapon that takes down vehicles."

The lone wolf campers that contribute nothing to the team are going to LOVE the Xbow. What's next a healing bolt and a repairing bolt?

you people are so weak omg... allways gotta whine about stuff and get everything nerfed just because you get all butthurt when your K.D drops
if the developers add somthing they should keep it how it is and if you dont like it find a different game to ruin because BF3 is fun but all these pointless nerfs are getting annoying. think of it as in real life, your enemy designed a new weapon thats overpowered you dont see anyone going "oh well um seems to be that this weapon is unfair and they dont want us to use it because its to good, ill re make the design immediatly" because that totally how you stay ahead in war... heck you dont like the crossbows being shot at you suck it up and find a way to get them guys instead of "raging" and posting about how powerful and unfair it is... all you tryhards are probly thinking "oh your just a newb and your moms fat" you need to grow up. Dev. of the crossbow good job on making a interesting weapon that "most" of us will enjoy :) P.s stoked for aftermath!

If they only gave it to one class, everyone would use that class.


It was a good idea making it an all kit weapon.


"What's next a healing bolt and a repairing bolt? "

I would be down for that. Remote teamwork, hell yeah.
