The Crossbow (クロスボウ Kurosubou) is a weapon classified under the eponymously-named Crossbow category, appearing exclusively in Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn. While this bow is the second weakest of the five crossbows available in the game, it is the strongest crossbow that can be purchased at a regular Armory. Like its other crossbow counterparts, the Crossbow possesses an advantage over regular bows in being able to target enemies positioned adjacently to its wielder; however, only 2nd and 3rd-tier promoted units are able to equip them.
For a weapon that ignores the Strength of its wielder, the Crossbow's Might and Accuracy rate are still rather impressive nonetheless, functioning as sufficient compensation for the aforementioned deficiency. In addition to this, the Crossbow is also capable of inflicting effective damage against Flying Units, allowing for the weapon to potentially increase its damage output by an exponential extent.
