Explosive Crossbow is a ranged weapon which fires explosive bolts slowly, dealing extra damage on direct hits.

Details[edit | edit source]

  • Special Effects:
    • Fired bolts explode, damaging enemies within range and line of sight of the explosion's center and causing extremely strong knockback. The explosion itself has a radius(?) of 4 (in units of tiles?).
    • Enemies hit directly by the bolts are not damaged by the explosion, instead taking 2x direct hit damage (275 base critical DPS; direct hits are always critical hits)
  • Breach Bonus: -0.7
    • Base Breach Damage: 27 [explosion]; 33 (66) [direct hit]
    • Base Breach DPS: 21 (51)

    • Forced Affix: Pierce
      • "Shots pierce the first target"

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Though the weapon can only be fired at most once every 1.3 seconds, the player regains control 0.8 seconds after the start of each attack, resulting in a net 0.5-second wait between the end of one attack and the start of the next.
  • The keys to the explosive crossbow are as follows:
    • There is a place to dive through the ground using the Ram Rune where one Gardener's Key can be found.
    • There is a tower to find that you can climb up with the Spider Rune where another Gardener's Key can be found.
    • There is a potted rose that is on the ground somewhere in the Promenade, dive three times and it will give you the last Gardener's Key
