The Eldritch crossbow is a two-handed crossbow that requires level 92 Ranged to wield. It may be obtained as three separate rare drops from the third elite dungeon, The Shadow Reef. It has to be assembled out of its three pieces, the stock, the limbs, and the mechanism, which are dropped by The Ambassador.

Special attack[edit | edit source]
The Eldritch Crossbow has a special attack, Split Soul, requiring 25% adrenaline to activate. For 15 seconds, instead of healing the player, the Soul Split curse damages the player's target for 4 times the amount of life points it would have healed. This means that, given the diminishing returns from how Soul Split heals players, abilities that deal damage in multiple smaller hits, such as Rapid Fire and Corruption Shot, benefit more than abilities that have a single large hit, such as Snipe. The boost from the amulet of souls also increases the damage output. Damage dealt by the special attack is displayed as separate hits using blight hitsplats. Switching weapons causes the effect to end early. For bosses that are invulnerable but can be accurately attacked and healed from by using Soul Split, such as when phasing Nex and when Karil uses his spin-attack within Barrows: Rise of the Six, the special attack works at lowering their health with blight hitsplats even though they are invulnerable to any base-damage.

Repair cost[edit | edit source]
The base repair cost of the Eldritch crossbow when completely degraded to 0.0% item charge is 4,800,000 coins. It can be repaired by:
- Bob - the axe seller in Lumbridge
- Tindel Marchant - the weapon and armour repairman at Port Khazard
- Dunstan - the smith in Burthorpe
- Squire - in the workshop area of the Void Knights' Outpost
If it is only partially degraded, then the cost of a full repair is multiplied by the percentage of item charge that needs to be repaired to produce the current repair cost.
