Examine Good if you have a crossbow!

Crossbow bolts are ammunition for the crossbow and the phoenix crossbow, and cannot be made by players. They have about the same power as bronze or iron arrows.[Clarify] Poison Crossbow bolts can be made by applying weapon poison, producing 5 poisonous bolts per potion.

With level 34 Fletching, they can be made into oyster pearl bolts by attaching oyster pearl bolt tips for 6.25 Fletching experience per bolt. Oyster pearl bolts are similar in power to mithril arrows.[Clarify]

  • With the release of Fletching in early 2002, crossbows and their bolts were considered obsolete in favor of the new, stronger bows and arrows, despite crossbows being 1-handed weapons capable of paring with a shield.
