I have no clue if you can use it or not have not seen it used in any of the vids. But that would be a cool weapon

I think there was a thread about this. I don't believe you can use a crossbow..
Don't take my word for it though.

well in a uk review on ign.com they say that you can "use multiple melee and short range wepons like throwing knifes."

Indeed no need to FLAME. And even more not when it is not true what you are saying ! Because in the first couple of clips we could see from AC. You have a Crossbow, they don't use it but I also would like you could.

Anyhow the following is a fact: you can get some higher rated equipement in the game, this can be gloves but also can be (in my oppinion) weapons, like a better sword or even crossbow.

However in the latest clips we only saw a big arabic sword on Alta´r's back so don't know so don't take my words serious but this is my guess on it !

There is no crossbow in the game despite it being in an early CGI video for Assassin's Creed. The devs were looking for a ranged weapon but something like a crossbow takes a long time to reload after shooting so it's not really feasible from a gameplay pespective to have it.

Imagine Altair has just shot someone and then spends the next two mins stood on a crossbow trying to pull it back to reload - not very fun or fluid.

Have you ever tried to load one yourself? You have to stand on the front bit of the crossbow and pull back the bow string and the tension that creates is immense. Not something you can just casually do in the heat of battle or anything..

That's also for very light and not very powerful ones. If you had a seriously powerful crossbow there's usually a lever/crank thing on it to draw it back!

Modern crossbows do not take that long (comparatively speaking) to load. However medieval crossbows, even light ones took several minutes.

Most heavy crossbows had a draw weight of over 600lbs for example.
The user had to step on a brace located in the front of the crossbow and manually wench the string back. This took both hands and left the crossbowmen vulnerable.
The average time to load one of these suckers? 2-3 minutes.

UbiRazz confirmed there is NO crossbow, I should think an Ubi Employee should know, especially one in his position.
