No where in the Conan world (rightly or wrongly) would I think of gunpowder and probably not crossbows either.

I agree about the gunpowder weapons but there’s definitely crossbows. Arus the night watchman carries one in “The God in the Bowl”. It’s even referred to as an arbalest (i.e. a more mechanically advanced form of crossbow) in that story.
