First I wish to tell you all hand crossbow locations at the vanilla game. Then I will tell you the best hand crossbow mods.
Baldur’s Gate 3 Hand Crossbow Locations
2 of the static hand crossbow locations have been found by the player base.
First location can be found in the underdark. Check the deep gnome corpses near the duegar beach. One of the deep gnomes have a hand crossbow for you to loot. So, go near the myconid post, check x:102, y:237 coordinates, and do let me know if you find the hand crossbow.
Second one is near the petrified drows and the spectator. Since it is inside a bag, and surrounded by fog, you might have a hard time finding it. Due to hardship of finding a hand crossbow, I recommend you to check the mods below.
