The Dorgeshuun crossbow is a crossbow requiring level 28 Ranged to equip. It is often used to train Ranged at low to medium levels, due to it having several advantages over similar crossbows with the same level requirements.
It has an attack speed that is one tick faster than most other crossbows, and it is able to fire bone bolts, which are significantly cheaper than most other ammunition of similar strength. The fact it is a crossbow also gives it an advantage over shortbows, allowing the use of the shield slot for defensive or offensive purposes.
It can be bought from Nardok in the Dorgeshuun Mines after the completion of The Lost Tribe quest. Completion of this quest is not required to equip it, however, meaning it can be purchased from other players and used without completing this quest. It can fire bolts up to iron and is the only crossbow that can use bone bolts.
This crossbow is the only one-handed crossbow with an attack speed of 5. This makes it 1 tick faster than all other crossbows, with the exception of the hunters' crossbow, which has an attack speed of 4. Weighing less than 2.5kg, it is also the lightest crossbow in the game, making it ideal to use along with the mith grapple when conservation of run energy is necessary, such as in the 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"."
