The Zaryte crossbow is a ranged weapon that requires a Ranged level of 80 to wield, and can fire up to and including dragon bolts. Unlike other crossbows, the Zaryte crossbow grants defensive bonuses. It is one of two crossbows with a Prayer bonus. The crossbow has an attack range of 8, and the longrange combat style will increase it by 2. It is only outclassed by the Dragon hunter crossbow when fighting draconic monsters.
The crossbow itself is crafted by attaching a nihil horn, obtained as a rare drop from Nex, with an Armadyl crossbow and 250 nihil shards. The Zaryte crossbow counts as a Zarosian item, but not as an Armadylean item in the God Wars Dungeon. In addition, the crossbow possesses a special attack as well as a passive effect.

Passive effect[edit | edit source]
The Zaryte crossbow has a passive effect that strengthens the effects of enchanted bolts by 10%. For example, with enchanted ruby bolts, the bolt's special effect, Blood Forfeit, would deal 22% of the opponent's current hitpoints with a cap of 110 damage, rather than the usual 20% damage and 100 hitpoint damage cap.
Special attack[edit | edit source]
The Zaryte crossbow has a special attack, Evoke, which consumes 75% of the player's special attack energy. The special attack will guarantee the special effect of enchanted bolts to occur on the next shot, with doubled accuracy, providing that the player lands a successful hit on the target.
