Karil's crossbow detail

Karil's crossbow is a ranged weapon that is part of Karil the Tainted's set of barrows equipment. It requires 70 Ranged to wield. It fires bolt racks, which break upon firing. When equipped with the other three pieces of Karil the Tainted's set the wearer will receive the set effect , which has a chance to temporarily lower their target's Agility level. This effect is negligible against NPC's. This weapon cannot be made using the Smithing skill.

Unlike standard crossbows; it is wielded in both hands. Furthermore, regular crossbows fire fewer, more powerful shots, meaning Karil's crossbow is actually similar in function to a shortbow; this gives it a potentially higher damage per second, at the expense of the shield slot. The crossbow has an attack range of 8. Longrange increases attack range by 2.
