;D :D

I'd assume the figure is a commando. A crossbow is relatively silent, but can also fire stuff like transmitters or grappling hooks.

"When I complained about the crossbow, the Lance Sergeant informed me that the militia on Wei had to use slings with manure as ammunition so I should count myself lucky"

What Johnson says in Halo 2 came to mind from that:
"When I joined the Corps, we didn't have any fancy-shmancy tanks. We had sticks! Two sticks, and a rock for the whole platoon - and we had to share the rock! Buck up, boy, you're one very lucky Marine!"

Interestingly, there are reports of Chinese SF using crossbows in the field; they're as silent as they ever were (quieter than a suppressed weapon) and with modern materials to make them, possibly even more deadly.

Rate of fire is still pretty low, though.  Give me a silenced firearm any day.
