Can Crossbows Penetrate Body Armor? Let’s Find Out

Can a regular hunting crossbow penetrate body armor?

The results certainly may surprise you.

Witness what happens when a crossbow takes on body armor.

Twang N Bang decided to see if a crossbow can penetrate modern soft body armor. The results are extremely impressive.

An arrow tipped with a hunting broadhead sliced right through a soft body armor panel. How can that be? Well the tightly woven ballistic material is meant to catch bullets like a catcher’s mitt. Arrow tips push through and cut the actually material thereby making soft body armor completely useless at stopping arrows.

While modern body armor just might save your life from bullets, never try to stop an arrow with one as this video proves.
