- Crossbowman is Lire's only job that drifts away from using the standard variation of the a bow.
- In the Season 3 Revamp for Crossbowman, her grab consisted of her instantly flipping her opponent and then stomping on them in just two seconds, which is under the usual grab animation length, allowing her to move as her foe attempts to recover, only to fall down again. The grab was later reanimated, rebalanced, and extended, preventing her from moving early and severely delaying the opponent.
- Before the Season 3 Revamp, Crossbowman's second grade skill was named Dance Tempest or Beat Rush, which consisted of her firing numerous bolts in all directions while performing a specific movement.
- Before the Season 3 Revamp, Crossbowman's third grade skill was named Harpy Hunt Shot or Dive Bombing, which consisted of her diving backwards while releasing numerous bolts into the sky in which a Harpy will fall in front of the Crossbowman before she moved which deals massive damage on impact.
- Crossbowman is Lire's only class who has limited firing range and different aim control compared to her other classes.
- The Elsword character Rena's Fatality was based off of the animation of Beat Rush.
