Crossbows are ranged projectile weapons similar to bows. They fire crossbow bolts, rather than arrows. They differ from bows by several factors:
  1. Crossbows may be fired, but not aimed, from a single hand. You must aim manually (though this is normally impractical) or use auto-aim to fire them this way. This is a primary benefit over bows. To aim, you must use it in both hands.
  2. You can also have a crossbow in each hand, and power stance two crossbows. This usually allows you to fire both at once.
  3. Crossbow bolts deal more physical damage that equivalent arrows, so the total damage is a bit higher than what appears in the table. They are also more expensive.
  4. Crossbows normally do not scale with any stat, but infusing them with an element does normally give them scaling.
  5. Crossbows cannot be infused with poison or bleed.
  6. When infused with Mundane, their base damage drops drastically, by a factor of 5 or so. However, they do gain mundane scaling.
  7. Crossbows fire faster than similar bows, but have an additional reload animation that makes their overall speeds about equal.
  8. Firing pivot is below the hips opposed to bows chest height.
