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


Items in italics are quoted directly from the game.

Crossbows are commonly used for hunting by nobles in the Dyrwood, but they are also employed as weapons of war by many soldiers and adventurers. Less powerful than their close sibling, the arbalest, crossbows can be cocked by hand and have a moderately fast rate of fire.
