A repeating crossbow is a crossbow weapon that allows multiple bolts to be loaded at once. This allows for a much higher rate of fire, and thus more damage per second, because it takes much less time to ready the next pre-loaded bolt than it does to load a bolt initially.
Repeating crossbows vary in the number of bolts that can be loaded in their chamber. Some crossbows hold as few as 2 bolts where others may hold 4, 8, or more bolts.
- The repeating crossbow is unarmed / ready to fire a crossbow bolt.
- The repeating crossbow can house N more bolt(s).
STUDY: To use the repeating crossbow you are certain you should:
- LOAD - to add ammunition into the chamber. [RT varies by crossbow]
- PULL - to unready ammunition and place it in the chamber. [3 sec RT]
- PUSH - to ready available ammo within the ammunition chamber. [3 sec RT]
- UNLOAD - to remove ready ammunition from the crossbow. [3 sec RT]
- hold crossbow to hold the crossbow in your hands.
- load crossbow repeatedly until the chamber is full.
- push crossbow once to ready a bolt from the chamber.
- aim <target> to begin aiming your crossbow at your target.
- fire to shoot at your target.
- push, aim, fire, repeat, and once your chamber is empty then you need to reload.
- You can load different kinds of crossbow bolts. For example, a repeating crossbow can be loaded with basilisk bolts and ice-adder bolts.
