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

The blueprint for this item in the Promenade of the Condemned is locked behind three doors which require Gardener's Keys to be opened.

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)
  • Tags: Has Bullets, Ranged, Is Crossbow, Explosive
  • Legendary Version: Ravager
    • 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
