Crossbow (weapon)

From Old School RuneScape Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Crossbows are weapons used in ranged combat that require a certain Ranged level to wield. They are different than bows in that they are horizontal and can be held with one hand (except for the Karil's crossbow), allowing a player to carry a shield with the other.

Free-to-play players are recommended to stay with bows as the crossbows available to them are weak, while members have very strong crossbows. Crossbows require ammunition in the form of bolts.
