Dorgeshuun crossbow detail.png

The Dorgeshuun crossbow is a crossbow that is often used to train Ranged due to the fact that its ammunition is cheap and powerful, and it has stats comparable to those of a yew shortbow or an iron crossbow while being one-handed, allowing the use of a shield slot item such as a god book or Anti-dragon shield. It requires a Ranged level of 28 to wield.

It can be bought from Nardok in the Dorgeshuun Mines after the completion of the Lost Tribe quest (though the quest does NOT need to be completed in order to equip it). It can fire bolts up to iron (excluding silver bolts, leaving it with only bronze, iron, and blurite bolts and their unenchanted gem-tipped versions) and is the only crossbow that can use bone bolts.

This crossbow is the only one-handed crossbow with an attack speed of 5, which is 1 higher than most crossbows.

Special attack

The Dorgeshuun crossbow has a special attack, Snipe, (75%) which has a guaranteed hit if your target is facing away from you, and lowers the target's Defence by the amount of damage dealt, same as bone dagger's special attack. [1]

The special attack can only be used after completing the Death to the Dorgeshuun quest.
