Tactical Crossbow

A Light Armored Operator, Capitão's unique gadget is a Tactical Crossbow that can silently shoot Venom Bolts, which will detonate a toxic cloud to damage enemies within its cloud of effect, as well as Micro Smoke grenades, that can mask positions and team movements, as well as enable takedowns on tough Archaeans.

At Operater level 2, bolt swapping and reloading speed is increased by 30%. At Operator level 7, the bolts cloud effect is increased to 15 seconds and Venom damage is increased. Finally at level 10, the ammo count for both bolt types is increased to four.

  • Capitão's Tactical Crossbow features a Red Dot Sight unique to itself and is loaded with Venom Bolts by default. The user can switch to the alternate ammunition by pressing the firing mode key. Capitão will automatically load the alternate ammunition when one is depleted.
    • Capitão has two Venom Bolts and two Micro Smoke Grenades. Capitão reloads the Crossbow by racking its foregrip, meaning that reloading is much faster than switching ammunition types.
      • Each ammunition type is represented by different color containers. The Venom are a gray and green, and are automatically set as the ammo being used first. The Micro Smoke grenades are a gray and blue, and can be switched to.
    • The Crossbow fires nearly silently.
    • Any ammunition fired from the crossbow isn't affected by gravity at ranges less than 10 meters. Past 10 meters, the trajectory slowly drops due to gravity.
      • Each bolt when hitting a surface will immediately stop and drop to the floor, instead being broken where the ground is.
    • Crossbow bolts have no projectile size; they can pass through openings that are as small as a bullet hole.
    • The spread of the fire is blocked by objects; hiding behind a Deployable Shield can minimize or even prevent damage from a fire in front of the shield.
  • Micro Smoke Grenades create a smokescreen at the area of impact. They cover a much wider area than a regular Smoke Grenade being 5 meters in diameter. They also apply the Smoked status on Archaeans.
  • Venom Bolts does damage when fired at Sower mines.
