Best Answer

A crossbow is essentially a upgraded bow. it uses a string that pulls back a bolt with a lot of stregnth so it can fly farther, go faster, and hit harder. The Crossbow was invented in ancient China, but the Greeks and Romans used the crossbow design when making ballistas and scorpions. or a bow with a cross!!
