A crossbow is a simple two-handed ranged weapon in the crossbow weapon group.[PH:219]

Loading a crossbow is a minor action requiring the use of both hands.

Ardents, artificers, assassins, avengers, bards, battleminds, clerics, druids, fighters, invokers, paladins, psions, rangers, runepriests, seekers, sorcerers, swordmages, vampires, wardens, warlocks, and warlords are proficient with all simple ranged weapons, including the crossbow.

Other classes do not have proficiency with the crossbow as a class trait, but any character can become proficient by taking a Weapon Proficiency feat.
