Crossbows are weapons used in the Underworld series. Vampires would load crossbows with silver bolts in the days before the invention of silver bullets to exploit the extreme allergy to silver of Werewolves and Lycans.
Vampire Elder Amelia is seen using a crossbow in a flashback in Underworld: Evolution. When the Vampires arrive at a mountainside village, they discover that the original Werewolf, William Corvinus, has already killed all of the village's citizens. Before the Vampires can destroy the bodies, the villagers begin to rise from the dead as Werewolves. Amelia uses a crossbow, as well as a silver sword, to fight the Werewolves in the village.
When William is found in the forest just outside of the village, several Death Dealers use silver crossbows to chain down the Werewolf, shooting spikes through his arms and legs. Despite the intervention of William's twin brother, Marcus Corvinus, the Werewolf is brought down by the strength of the Death Dealers pulling on the silver chains.
Lycan servant Lucian also uses a crossbow to shoot at oncoming Werewolves that are chasing Sonja.
At the beginning of the film, Vampire Elder Viktor shoots a crossbow bolt at Lucian, who catches it before it can harm him. He also kills Lucian's Werewolf mother with a crossbow bolt to the head. Death Dealer captain Sandor also shoots at Lucian with a crossbow when the Lycan tries to escape the castle with his Vampire lover, but Lucian catches all his bolts and promptly kills him.
Death Dealers also commonly use crossbows to keep the Lycan slaves in line.
