Crossbow detail

A crossbow is one of the weakest ranged weapons in RuneScape, and one of the lowest level crossbows available. The crossbow, Phoenix crossbow and Exquisite crossbow are the only crossbows obtainable in free-to-play. However, they are rarely used due to their low accuracy.

Perhaps the most common use of the crossbow in free-to-play worlds was for rangers attempting to complete the Dragon Slayer quest. Equipping a crossbow allows the equipping of an anti-dragonfire shield, which is essential when fighting Elvarg. However, with the release of the Evolution of Combat, free players are now able to equip Javelins which can also be used with the anti-dragon shield, and come in more accurate varieties for higher levelled rangers. As a result, the crossbow is rarely used.
