The Explosive Tip Crossbow is a scoped weapon in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare: Mobilized and Call of Duty: Black Ops (Nintendo DS).

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare: MobilizedEdit

Explosive Tip Crossbow
Magazine Size 1
Maximum Ammunition 11
Rate of Fire Low
Fire Mode Single-shot
Used by Insurgency
It is essentially a scoped crossbow loaded with arrows tipped with an explosive (hence the name), which explodes on impact. It is found on multiple levels hidden in one of the areas where the hidden collectible is. It is only necessary to use this weapon in the level "Closing In", to take out a machine gun emplacement, but it is possible to kill the gunner using first a flashbang and then any other weapon at the player's disposal. However, this weapon has a large blast radius, allowing the player to take out groups of enemies at once without even aiming. It also has an unlimited range. Its ammunition is only 10 shots, making it useful for a short time, and with only 1 shot per time.


  • "Distant Information" — Located in the building the player starts in behind a green box.
  • "Wrecking Crew" — Located by the truck the player puts charges on. It is on a box after the truck explodes. It is also found near the collectible the player can find near the fire escape behind a truck.
  • "Interception" — Located in the building by the road the player travels on after using the FGM-148 Javelin.
  • "Needle in a Haystack" — Located in a room down the hallway in the first building the player enters.
  • "Closing In" — Located on a stack of brown boxes where the player uses a Flashbang to get passed the machine gunner.
  • "Hostile Territory" — Located behind a pillar in the first room the player enters after clearing the courtyard.
  • "Informant Extraction" — Located behind the bus where the player starts out.
  • "To the Rig" — Located to the left of the building the player goes into. It is next to the dumpster.
  • "Oil Rig Confrontation" — Located in the room with a vending machine and a fridge. It is off to the side. Note: an enemy comes out of the room.
  • "Winter Assault" — Located to the side of the desk in the room before going to the garage.
  • "Last Chance" — Located on a desk in the last office cubicle in the office room before going into the hallway.

The Explosive Tip Crossbow reappears in Call of Duty: Black Ops (Nintendo DS) as a weapon only available in multiplayer, but only if the player acquires it from the Snowman room. It functions the same as the one in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare: Mobilized, however it only has a total of 6 bolts as opposed to the 11 seen in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare: Mobilized, probably for balancing purposes.
