Chaotic crossbow detail

The chaotic crossbow is a ranged weapon released with the Dungeoneering skill on 12 April 2010. Priced at 200,000 Dungeoneering tokens and requiring 80 Ranged and Dungeoneering to wield, it can fire all bolts except bolt racks. It has an off-hand counterpart, and when used with it, it offers damage equal to the royal crossbow and the attuned crystal chakram with its off-hand counterpart.

Dying with a chaotic crossbow in the Wilderness results in the crossbow being converted into 40,000 coins, which are dropped.

Degradation and repairEdit

The chaotic crossbow has 30,000 charges of combat (a minimum time of 5 hours). Once the charges run out, it will break and become unusable until repaired by the rewards trader at Daemonheim. When first purchased, it will have a 20% charge. Repairs are made incrementally in 1% portions, and the cost of recharging can be paid in two ways: coins, or a combination of coins and Dungeoneering tokens.

  • 99% charged – 20,000 or 2,000 and Dungeoneering token 200
  • 90% charged – 200,000 or 20,000 and Dungeoneering token 2,000
  • 20% charged (initial charge) – 1,600,000 or 160,000 and Dungeoneering token 16,000
  • 0% charged (broken) – 2,000,000 or 200,000 and Dungeoneering token 20,000

All repair costs are reduced by 5% if Daemonheim aura 3 has been earned.

TriviaEdit

  • The chaotic crossbow used to cost 400,000 Dungeoneering tokens before the 21 April 2010 update.
  • Chaotic crossbows, along with all other chaotic weapons/shields, will stack in the bank as long as they are on the same charge. For example, two chaotic crossbows with 24% charge and 11% charge will not stack, but two chaotic crossbows with 24% will.
  • The examine says 'A small crossbow, only effective at short distance', but it's larger than a regular crossbow, and hits accurately regardless of distance.
