The Blightbound crossbow is a main-hand crossbow requiring level 92 Ranged to wield. It has an off-hand counterpart and is able to fire all bolts. It is the strongest main-hand crossbow in the game. It, along with its off-hand counterpart, once belonged to Erethdor, as the server wide announcement received when a player receives one of the bows refers to it as "Erethdor's Blightbound crossbow."

It is a rare drop from Solak and has a special effect that gives a 25% chance to save bakriminel bolts. Combined with the off-hand blightbound crossbow, there will be a 50% chance in total.

The crossbow will degrade to a broken state after 60,000 charges of combat (but loses 2 charges per hit, so has a minimum duration of 5 hours of combat). It can be fixed by Repair NPCs such as Bob in Lumbridge, or at an armour stand in a player-owned house. A full repair, without discounts, costs 3,000,000 coins.

The crossbow, and the off-hand variant can be dyed with either barrows, shadow, third-age, blood, or ice dyes. This process is irreversible and will make the crossbow untradeable.

Blight bolts are often used with this weapon for Slayer, and ruby, hydrix and onyx bakriminel bolts (e) for bossing.

Combat stats[edit | edit source]

Repair cost[edit | edit source]

The Blightbound crossbow at most, costs 3,000,000 coins to repair completely. The repair cost is precisely calculated by the degradation percentage (i.e. with 75% charge remaining, a full repair would only cost 750,000 coins). It may be repaired through a variety of methods.

With an NPC[edit source]

These less preferred methods cost more as they do not consider one's Smithing level for a repair discount.

Alternate methods[edit source]

These preferred methods provide a repair cost discount of 0.5% per Smithing level (including boosts).

Dyed[edit | edit source]

The Blightbound crossbow can be recoloured with dyes from Treasure trails for purely cosmetic purposes. A warning message is given when attempting to dye a plain Blightbound crossbow.

Once the dye is applied, the Blightbound crossbow becomes permanently untradeable.
