longer range, harder damage, but they are usually a lot slower to load as opposed to normal bow and arrow

Another defining feature of a crossbow would be 1-handed use.

you need both hands to load a crossbow, so i think it should be 2-handed weapon, just like bow...

It should also be two-handed for balance reasons. Ranged attackers are not supposed to have access to shields.
