The Phoenix crossbow is a quest item, although it can be traded. Compared to the regular crossbow and the bronze crossbow, it looks different, costs less, and has a lower accuracy. The Phoenix crossbow has no wielding requirements.
While this item is tradeable between players, it cannot be traded on the Grand Exchange, and it can only be obtained from another user or from the Phoenix Gang weapon store. Like all other items that are tradeable to other players but not on the Grand Exchange, it can be put into the chest in the Falador Party Room.
During the Shield of Arrav quest, players who wish to join the Black Arm Gang must give two Phoenix crossbows to Katrine. The phoenix crossbow can only be obtained normally by Black Arm Gang members after killing the Weaponsmaster in the Phoenix weapon store, as Phoenix Gang members cannot attack the Weaponsmaster. However, members of both gangs can use Telekinetic Grab to obtain the phoenix crossbow.
