Zanik's crossbow detail

Zanik's crossbow is both a quest item used during the The Chosen Commander quest as well as a high level crossbow that is one of the rewards for its completion.

As part of the quest, the player must augment Zanik's existing crossbow with additional items, reassemble it when broken, and then use its special attack to defeat the Bandos Avatar. During this time, the crossbow itself cannot be equipped. Instead, a dialogue option allows use of the special attack.

After quest completion, the player retains the augmented crossbow, which requires 48 Ranged to wield. While similar in appearance to the Dorgeshuun crossbow, it has significantly higher stats, slightly greater than that of an adamant crossbow. It can fire bolts up to adamant (including bone bolts and silver bolts), but it cannot fire broad-tipped bolts. Since the weight of the crossbow is 0 kg, it is the best crossbow to take to the Bandos Agility Course, also accessible after the quest.

If a player loses their crossbow, they can retrieve one (or more) from Oldak in exchange for a standard adamant crossbow (adamant 2h crossbows and off-hand adamant crossbows will not work). Players can obtain more than one by using the drop trick, but will need additional adamant crossbows.
