Disambig.png This article is about the weapon type in Pillars of Eternity. For the weapon type in Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire, see Arbalests (Deadfire).

Arbalests are two-handed ranged weapons in Pillars of Eternity. They are very slow, but deal a very high amount of Pierce damage.


Items in italics are quoted directly from the game.

Arbalests are heavy crossbows with exceptionally high power. They must be hand-cranked before loading, so they have a slow rate of fire.
