EDIT: Check out Daryl’s Stryker Strykezone 380 Crossbow on Amazon.
EDIT 2: Here’s an affordable alternative to Daryl’s Crossbow on Amazon.
So what crossbow does Daryl Dixon use in The Walking Dead you ask? He’s had a few so far actually. Fan favorite Daryl Dixon got a new crossbow in season three, episode 12 (well he doesn’t actually use it till episode 13) of The Walking Dead.
His original crossbow was the Horton Scout HD 125 that he’s been using since the start of the series. His new crossbow, the Stryker Strykezone 380, was found when Rick, Michonne and Carl stumble upon Morgan (Rick’s pal from season one) and his cache of weapons. Why use a crossbow when the undead start to walk you ask? Sure it doesn’t have the firepower of a gun and takes time to load, but when avoiding detection is more important then sending as much lead as you can down range, the crossbow is the perfect weapon.
The Stryker Strykezone 380 can actually be purchased on Amazon, but it’s pricey at over $700 and the reviews aren’t all that great. If you’re more of an OG Daryl fan the Horton Scout HD crossbow is also available on Amazon for much less and is more highly rated, although it’s a tad weaker if you actually wanted to hunt with it.
Both those crossbows are pricey and pretty rare these days, if you’re looking for an alternative for cosplaying or for a Halloween costume here’s an affordable alternative crossbow.
