Black bolts are bolts that can only be acquired by completing a level 1 Treasure trail or by trading with another player. They may be fired by any crossbow.
Black crossbow bolts are able to harm the Tormented Wraith, when being used in conjunction with a black crossbow, though this was not always the case.
Ava's Accumulator won't pick up these bolts, however it picks up all other kind of bolts, the reason for this is unknown. It may possibly be because Black armour and weapons are not considered to be a true metal.
Unlike the other metal bolts, Black bolts cannot be tipped with a gem of any kind.
As with all black equipment, this item cannot be made from raw materials using the Smithing skill.

- These bolts were once level 33 ammunition, making them better than mithril, which is unusual for black equipment.
- While gem tips cannot be added to them, their model looks like they are already tipped with a black stone (compare onyx bolts).
