This page is for the part used in crafting the Crossbow. For the part used in Shortbows and Longbows see Bow Limb.
The Crossbow limb is a tool part used in crafting the crossbow. The limb determines most of the draw speed (though the bow string plays a role), the arrow speed, the damage and some of the durability (most determined by crossbow body). Contrary to popular belief, using materials with higher attack damage does not increase shot damage. For a better limb, use "springier", more organic materials, such as cactus, wood, green slime, and blue slime. The best material to use for a crossbow limb is blue slime, since it takes the shortest amount of time to pull back and shoots fastest, thus it causes more damage.
