Icarus: Week 48 Update Adds Throwing Spear, Knife, and Two New Crossbows

Icarus Steam

The Week 48 Update for Icarus is finally available to download on Steam, and this time, developers added new variants of knife and spear to the weapon pool. That’s not all because they also added two new crossbows and fixed several issues in the game.

Throwable Weapons

In this update, players can now craft thrown versions of knives and spears, which can’t be used in melee situations. The throwable weapons have limits: 50 for knives and 20 for spears. This change was implemented because players often threw their weapons by mistake, which gets really annoying.

New Crossbows

Two new crossbows made their way into the game at Tier 3 and 4, which should present players with different options especially at higher tiers. The Tier 3 is a Platinum Crossbow craftable at the Machining Bench requiring Platinum, standard Epoxy, Leather, and Wood. While the Tier 4 is a Titanium Crossbow craftable at the Fabricator requiring Titanium and standard components.
