Blisterwood stake-thrower crossbow detail

The blisterwood stake-thrower crossbow, nicknamed Screwte after its designer Flaygian Screwte, is a two-handed ranged weapon. It can only fire blisterwood stakes (ammo), which can be crafted from standard blisterwood stakes. Creating this weapon and its ammunition requires partial completion of The Lord of Vampyrium. Like all blisterwood weaponry, it is primarily used for killing Vyrewatch, who cannot be harmed by any other means.

To create one, first combine mithril and silver bars at a furnace, creating silvthril limbs, then add a blisterwood stock, creating an unstrung version, and lastly add a crossbow string.

It is statistically identical to the black salamander and Karil's crossbow.
