How do you aim your crossbow within the Elden Ring? Follow these easy steps.

How to Target your Crossbow in the Elden Ring

To aim with your crossbow inside the Elden Ring, it is necessary to set it up as a two-handed weapon. 

This is because putting it in one hand (with an additional weapon, such as an axe) only allows the shooter to fire it with hip fire, but without the capability to aim. 

This is how you can do it:

  • Make sure you have your weapon is in good working order.
  • If you wish to use two hands with your crossbow, press the Y button, followed by RB/Triangle plus R1. If you use only one hand, you’ll end up shooting at your hip. This is because you secure your target.
  • If you prefer to focus manually, press the L1 key or L1.
  • Click R1 or R2 to insert an arrow into your crossbow. ( Press the “shoot” button to load the bolt inside your gun).
  • All that’s left to do remains to use R1 and R2 or for you to shoot one kind of Bolt or arrow and hit R2 and RT to shoot a different type of arrow or bolt.
  • Players can choose to aim using auto-aim or by hand (which is the preferred option).
  • Keep in mind that crossbows must be loaded before firing each shot. Plus, you cannot offer the brand-new Ashes of War to crossbows.
