Weapons Description

Crossbow, heavy

A heavy crossbow requires two hands to use effectively, regardless of the user's size. You draw a heavy crossbow back by turning a small winch. Loading a heavy crossbow is a full-round action that provokes attacks of opportunity.
A Medium-size or larger character can shoot, but not load, a heavy crossbow with one hand at a -4 penalty. A Medium-size or larger character can shoot a heavy crossbow with each hand but you take a penalty on attack rolls as if attacking with two one-handed weapons (see Two weapon fighting. This penalty is cumulative with one-handed fighting.
