The Dorgeshuun crossbow is a crossbow that is often used to train Ranged due to the fact that its ammunition is cheap and powerful, and it has stats comparable to those of a yew shortbow or an iron crossbow while being one-handed, allowing the use of a shield slot item such as a god book or anti-dragon shield. It has an attack range of 6, increased to 8 with longrange.
It requires a Ranged level of 28 to wield.
It can be bought from Nardok in the Dorgeshuun Mines after the completion of The Lost Tribe quest (though the quest does not need to be completed in order to equip it). It can fire bolts up to iron (excluding silver bolts, leaving it with only bronze, iron, and blurite bolts and their unenchanted gem-tipped versions) and is the only crossbow that can use bone bolts.
At only 2.267 kg, this crossbow weighs the least of all crossbows available, making it the best choice for cases where a crossbow is brought only to be used with mith grapple and conservation of run energy matters, e.g. in Hallowed Sepulchre.

Special attack[edit | edit source]
The Dorgeshuun crossbow has a special attack, Snipe, (75%) which will never miss as long as you weren't the last one to attack the target, and lowers the target's Defence by the amount of damage dealt, similar to the Bandos godsword's and bone dagger's special attacks. (Note that while the special attack skips the accuracy roll, it is still possible to "hit" a 0 on a successful attack.)

Mod Ash: "[Does the Dorgeshuun crossbow's spec reduce the target's defence level even if it's not an "unsuspecting target"? Also, what is an unsuspecting target?] If the accuracy roll is passed, yes. The definition of "unsuspecting target" is "target has not been hit before" OR "target was last hit by someone other than me"."
