The Crossbow is the ranged damage king. The Xbow, shorthand of Crossbow in game, has the longest distance of any weapon. You can rapidly fire bolts at any target and the distance makes the fact you're wearing light armor a non-issue. Xbow users have to be careful with ammunition though. Each bow has a magazine and once that magazine is expended if the user fires again it will cause an animation where the character checks to find out they have no bolts. That animation is the bane of many gutsy Xbow users causing deaths many times over. If you remain stationary while firing your rate of fire will increase. Like many weapons the only defense that the Xbow has is dodging.
