The dragon hunter crossbow is a dragonbane weapon obtained as a possible reward from the Chambers of Xeric, requiring 70 Ranged to wield. 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, and the longrange combat style will increase it by 2.
The dragon hunter crossbow possesses a passive effect that increases ranged accuracy by 30% and damage by 25% when fighting draconic creatures, such as dragons and wyverns. 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).
After completion of hard Combat Achievements, the dragon hunter crossbow can be combined with kbd heads to create a black variant. Similarly, a turquoise variant can be made after the completion of elite Combat Achievements with Vorkath's head.

Mod Ash: "Salve effects override the Slayer helm / black mask effects (because they're either identical or bigger). So you'll get bonuses for Void, then multiplied up by the Salve effect, then multiplied up again for the dragonbane bonus."
