Minifig Black Ops Crossbow- Really Shoots!
A Black Ops inspired minifigure-sized crossbow that actually fires bolts very accurately.
About this creation
A soldier and his trusty explosive-tip crossbow

Cocking the crossbow

Loading the bolt

The bolt can be placed in either of two grooves

This would be your last sight before meeting an unpleasant fate

Aiming at the enemy

A direct hit in the throat

And the bolt violently explodes

So I know it isn't that pretty looking, but I think that the sheer coolness overcomes the sub–par looks. I mean, it does look like the Black Ops crossbow, but not exactly. I used a Lego rubber-band for the bowstring, so it is purist I guess. It actually cocks and then fires a "crossbow bolt," a Lego screwdriver. It can actually fire two at a time, from the two grooves in the top. It can shoot fairly far (about 4 feet), but what really astounded me was its accuracy. I set up another minifigure as a target from about a foot and a half away, and I shot the minifig-target five out of seven shots. It was very consistent with that rate. The only misses I think were due to me aiming over the head, not to the crossbow being off. So this thing has some pretty blistering accuracy. This build was just kindof a revelation, so I'm curious what reaction this moc will get, because this is the first minifigure scale crossbow on mocpages that actually fires bolts. I hope you guys like this, and thanks for looking!

Quoting Decimator the NukeMaster Sweet job, I wonder if you could add a vid. How fast and far does it shoot?
As far as speed, it shoots very fast. Distance, about 5 feet. Which is pretty far for a Lego person haha.

Remarkable... this is the first time I've seen a functioning minifigure weapon. I shall now have to see if I can match this... you, sir, are a genius. This is bound to cause the dissappearance of hundreds of LEGO screwdrivers across the world.

Yeah I saw! I wasnt expecting that! After that I kinda hoped it would go all the way to the most popular for the week, and it now has 40 likes so it has a chance. Of course my second most popular moc has 14 likes, so waaaayyy less than the trampoline. Which is slightly annoying because I built the trampoline in an hour and the mocs that Ive spent days building only get 3 or 4 likes then the trampoline comes along and gets 40 haha. Owell. Thanks!

Quoting A. A. (AKA Noname) Hey, Josh, why did you quit the group and got back?
I never knew I quit honestly, I just stopped getting updates from the group then saw that I wasn't in it anymore, so I joined again, sorry, I'm not really sure what happened.

Awesome! To bad Lego never thought of it, their solid plastic bows are kind of silly.
