|Karil the Tainted's repeating crossbow.|
Karil's crossbow is a ranged weapon that is part of Karil the Tainted's set of barrows equipment. Karil's crossbow is a two handed weapon, unlike other crossbows, and requires 70 Ranged to wield. It uses bolt racks, which break upon firing. Karil's Crossbow is the fastest firing crossbow in the game, as it has the same rate of fire as shortbows. When equipped with the other three pieces of Karil the Tainted's set the wearer will receive the set effect from the armour. The wielder then has a chance to temporarily lower their target's Agility level (The effect is negligible in PvM situations). This weapon cannot be made using the Smithing skill.
This weapon has a weaker ranged bonus than the rune crossbow and the Armadyl crossbow, making it the third strongest crossbow in the game. Although it is weaker, its faster attacks make it function in a very similar manner to a shortbow; this makes it desirable for the Fight Caves activity, and makes it very effective at taking down many different enemies, due to its high damage per minute.
