Rubeus Hagrid's crossbow was the half-giant, gamekeeper, Hagrid's primary weapon, as his wand had been broken when he was expelled from Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in the 1940s. He often carried it for protection when making trips into the Forbidden Forest, such as in spring of 1992 when he took Harry, Hermione, Neville, and Draco to help look for an injured unicorn, and in the spring of 1996 when he took Harry and Hermione to meet his half-brother, Grawp. It was broken in March of 1997 when Hagrid briefly lost his temper at Harry's repeated accusations against Professor Snape. It is unknown if Hagrid ever repaired or replaced it.
