Default: DX-4.

Crossbow (DX/Easy) is the skill to use all types of crossbows, including the pistol crossbow, prodd (which fires pellets or stones), repeating crossbow, and hightech compound crossbow.


The ST rating of crossbows is discussed in GURPS Low-Tech, p. 74. The Crossbow Finesse perk is given in GURPS Power-Ups 2: Perks, p. 7, as a variant of Strongbow.
