The Paramina Crossbow.

Crossbows (自動弓, Jidouyumi?) are a type of weapon commonly used by Archers. They fire in a direct line of sight rather than an arched trajectory of a bow, which can sometimes be a disadvantage.

The Hunting Crossbow.

Crossbows are long-range weapons which deal normal damage. They generally do not deal as much damage as bows and its accuracy can be badly affected by windy weather or low visibility, but they have the shortest recharge time of any ranged weapon. Bolts must be equipped in order to use crossbows.

The damage formula for crossbows is:

DMG = [ATK * RANDOM(1..1.125) - DEF] * [1 + STR * (Lv+STR)/256]

Due to the weight put on user's Strength stat recommended crossbow users are Vaan, Balthier, and Basch.

Archers are able to use crossbows in battle. They are one-handed weapons, usually with a range of four tiles and are unaffected by height. The main disadvantage of crossbows is that they cannot be fired over obstacles like regular bows can, so the target must be directly in front of the crossbow user with no obstacles in between in order for the target to be hit.
