Like Bows, Crossbows have no additional effects. However, many Bolt types provide the means for additional effects: Blind, Sap, etc.

For this class of weapon, the damage output is determined by the attack power of the Crossbow and Bolt, your character's strength, and the enemy's defense.

» All Crossbows add 5 to evasion.
