The light crossbow is a missile weapon, commonly referred to as a ranged weapon, that fires a projectile (usually a light crossbolt), and requires the Ranged Weapons skill to use effectively. Crossbow bolts are arrow-like projectiles that are much shorter than arrows but considerably heavier. The crossbow is attached to a stock, so that it can be kept in the loaded state without effort from the user. In general, a crossbow is much easier to wield than its cousin, the bow. Thus, archers using crossbows may kneel in order to improve their aim.
