Fans of The walking dead The series are always curious about the weapons used by the characters in the series. Throughout the series, Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus) is known to carry his crossbow. It’s a smart weapon in an apocalypse because it’s lightweight and quiet, and you can craft your bolts if needed. A Silent Weapon is humorous coming from a character who has ridden a noisy motorcycle for the entire series.
In seasons one through three, a Horton Scout HD 125 crossbow was used by Daryl. With the research I have done, this is only a step above a child’s toy. This was probably used due to the weight of this weapon. 5.5 lbs, which makes it easy to postpone a 12 hour filming day.
The PSE Fang 350 crossbow was used briefly in season seven, and Mike of ArcheryDude.com says it is a crossbow worthy of Daryl Dixon. Still light at 7.3 lbs, it’s easy to handle and, according to Mike, “it’s fast, powerful, quiet and precise.”
Daryl Dixon’s crossbow at the Smithsonian National Museum of American History
In 2017, several objects from the The Walking Dead series were deposited at the Smithsonian National Museum of American History. This included a crossbow used by Daryl Dixon in seasons one through three of the series. This is a Black Horton Scout HD 125 crossbow with black nylon shoulder strap and three arrows in a holder attached to the front of the bow.
What type of crossbow does Daryl use in Season 11?
For the final season of the series, Daryl still uses a Stryker Strykezone 380. This crossbow was introduced in season three.
He uses it in “Archeron: Part 1” and “Archeron: Part 2” as well as “Hunted” but loses it along the way in “Rendition”. When the Reapers captured him, it looked like he only had his knife with him as that’s what he used to cut off Frost’s (Glenn Stanton) finger in “On the Inside”.
You can get a good look at the Season 11 weapon in the photo below.
But, according to a first photo of “Promises Broken”, he gets it back. Or maybe the Reapers had a spare part they loaned him.
Either way, it looks like he’ll get his weapon of trust back in Episode 1107.
The synopsis for “Promises Broken” states that Daryl is hunting with Leah, so it’s good that he got his crossbow back.
