The Crossbow will deal a specified amount of damage depending on the type of body part that has been hit and the type of armour the person has.
Going by the numbers in Low-Tech and Low-Tech Companion 3, it looks like a military crossbow has about $650 of labour cost in its price. A TL 4 armourer makes $1,900 per month and I guess a TL 5 one could make about $2,600 going by p. 517 of the Basic Set. Long story short, it looks like TL 5 workers consisting of a mix of skiller armourers and semi-skilled apprentices, etc. can turn out a crossbow with 66 hours and 20 minutes of labour. So in theory 400 craftsmen could make 100 crossbows with two days work.
Since coordinating all this work is likely to take a bit of time, workshops will need to be shifted around, materials located, some of the less trained people shown what to do, plus the extra time needed for metal to cool, glue to set and so on I think it is likely to actually take quite a bit longer than that. At a guess, one day to prepare and one day of waiting for stuff to cool, set, dry, etc. for a total of about four days. You probably can't push the workers with longer hours, since it will be quite hard work anyway and making people who aren't quite set up for the task work long hours will result in a lot of errors.

(Many bowmen were recruited at a young age to master their craft.) On a similar note, a crossbow can be loaded long before the bowman.
This thing might look like an old crossbow of before. However, it's nothing more than a regular syringe gun!
— Crusader's Crossbow publicity blurb
The Crusader's Crossbow is a community-createdprimary weapon for the Medic. The Crusader's Crossbow is a wooden crossbow with a metal barrel attached to a canister which houses a syringe until it is fired. The Medic's icon is present on both the canister and the frame of the Crusader's Crossbow.
The Crusader's Crossbow fires a syringe that travels in a slight arc with a team-colored healing streak trailing behind it. The Crusader's Crossbow does not require the user to charge their shot before firing, and the time spent reloading is less than the Huntsman; however, the syringes cannot score headshots. Syringes fired from the Crusader's Crossbow will damage enemies and heal teammates, allowing a sharpshooting player to deal damage to an enemy or heal a teammate from a great distance. Any player hit with a syringe fired from the Crusader's Crossbow will appear to have a syringe sticking out of their body, a mere cosmetic effect. The sound effect from hitting a teammate is different to that of hitting an enemy, indicating what the result of that bolt was to the player.
Syringes function on a reversed damage falloff scale; the further a syringe travels, the greater the amount of damage it will deal or health it will heal. The amount of health replenished is not affected by whether the teammate has been recently damaged. Healing teammates with a syringe fired from the Crusader's Crossbow will contribute a small amount of charge to the Medic's ÜberCharge meter. Critical hits do not affect the amount of healing done or amount of charge gained. ÜberCharge gain rate is reduced in the same way that the Medi Gun's healing (and therefore, ÜberCharge build rate) is; that is, it is based on the last time the target was in combat. The ÜberCharge gain rate is reduced by a third when between 1 to 10 seconds outside of combat, and scales back to normal over 10 to 15 seconds.
Unlike other types of the syringe, a Pyro can deflect a syringe fired from the Crusader's Crossbow back at the Medic, or into their own teammates to give them a health boost. Disguised enemy Spies are damaged by reflected syringes, rather than healed. It also cannot destroy stickybombs.
The kill icon for the Crusader's Crossbow was contributed by Psyke.

How much should this project cost?
It depends if you already have some materials, but to buy the wood, saws and equipment I would say no more than $30.
Can I change the power of the bow?
You can put another piece of PVC inside it, which might make it more powerful.
How long will it take to make this?
This all could be done in a matter of a few hours, but if you want to be extremely accurate and want your crossbow to be top-notch quality, it could take a day or two (working less than 7 hours each day).
What is the channel for in the L shaped trigger?
The channel helps hold the string so that when you pull the trigger, the string lifts off of the channel, causing the crossbow to fire.
Where can I find the string for the crossbow?
Anyplace that sells paracord, such as a hardware or sporting goods store.
Can I modify it to fold up?
Probably not, as do do that you would need to hinge the bow to bend, when which would take the tension off it.
Can I use some rubber bands for the string?
No. You should use twine or something similar. The bow should be the stretchy part, not the string.
Do crossbows take the same arrows as a bow?
Not all the time. Some crossbows use normal arrows, but most of the time you need bolts, which are an entirely different type of ammo.
Will this work as a hunting crossbow?
No. It does not have the required power to be used for hunting. It is best for target shooting.
Is it possible to use this when hunting?
No. It does not fire with enough power for most hunting applications.

take your registered crossbow with copy of original receipt to an authorized PSE retail dealer or 4) ALWAYS check your crossbow to make sure that it is in.
Crossbows were also used in the West. They were known to the ancient Greeks and Romans, and by medieval times in Europe, the crossbow had evolved into a powerful weapon capable of penetrating armor. Chinese crossbows could pierce several layers of iron armor, but in China, where the defense and attack of walled cities was the primary focus of military campaigns, the crossbow was valued for its ability to deliver volleys of bolts even more than for its power to penetrate.
Crossbows remained one of the major weapons in Song times. In the eleventh century, Shen Gua argued that the crossbow is to the Chinese what the horse was to the Khitan -- the asset that gave them their advantage. In field battles against foreign cavalry, the Chinese infantry would have a row of pikemen with shields, rows of archers, and a row of crossbowmen. When the cavalry approached, the crossbowmen would shoot first above the crouching pikemen and bowmen. The pikemen and archers would shield the slower-firing crossbowmen, who, however, could inflict more damage.

This Minecraft tutorial explains how to craft a crossbow with screenshots and step-by-step instructions. In Minecraft, a crossbow is a new weapon that will be available in the Village & Pillage Update (Java Edition ). Similar to a bow, you use your crossbow to shoot arrows in.
