Description of a Siege Crossbow


A siege crossbow is a siege weapon that is essentially a scaled crossbow mounting it on top of a cart or a platform. It is used to assault fortifications.

Strengths[edit | edit source]

Capable of firing bolts that measure roughly 2 meters. However, the ones that appeared in front of Kankoku Pass were equipped with stakes that were nearly 4 meters long. If used with ropes and nets, they can form makeshift ladders to scale walls as high as Kankoku Pass. Others can launch containers of poison gas if properly constructed.

Weakness[edit | edit source]

Due to the difficulty of manufacturing, there do not exist many records of it seeing actual use on the battlefield.
