The dragon hunter crossbow is a dragonbane weapon obtained as a possible reward from the Chambers of Xeric. Equipping the crossbow requires 65 Ranged and increases both accuracy and damage by 30% when fighting dragons and other draconic creatures, such as wyverns and the Great Olm. However, Elvarg and revenant dragons are not affected by this bonus. This stacks additively with Void Knight equipment and multiplicatively with the Slayer helm (i) (49.5%).[clarification needed] [citation needed]

Long kebbit bolts and Kebbit bolts cannot be used with this weapon, unlike the similarly named hunters' crossbow that can fire them. Broad bolts may be used if the player has their requirement of 55 Slayer. The crossbow has an attack range of 7. Longrange increases attack range by 2.
