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 multiplicatively with Void Knight equipment, Salve amulets, and the Slayer helm (i).
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.

So you'll get bonuses for Void, then multiplied up by the Salve effect, then multiplied up again for the dragonbane bonus."
