The crossbow is as much a symbol as it is a weapon. It is an Apt weapon that the Inapt cannot comprehend. It is described as the weapon of the revolution. What is it that makes this so? A crossbow can be given to a virtually untrained former slave and, so long as they are apt and capable of cocking it, all they need to do is point, pull the trigger and bring death to his former masters.

Even hundreds of years later, the crossbow is the main weapon of ant infantry and the base of many experimental weapons.
