A repeating crossbow is a crossbow weapon that allows multiple bolts to be loaded at once.[1] 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.

Mechanics

EXAMINE/LOOK:

  • 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]

Example Usage

  2. load crossbow repeatedly until the chamber is full.
  3. push crossbow once to ready a bolt from the chamber.
