The repeating crossbow was a crossbow made of modern materials capable of firing multiple shots.

Description[edit | edit source]

Designed by Drolan Plasteel, the repeating crossbow looked like a cross between a blaster rifle and bowcaster. Crafted out of lightweight plasteel, the crossbow weighed very little, and was equipped with an underslung bin holding ten arrows or quarrels. Upon firing, a new quarrel was automatically loaded into the weapons firing groove and the bowstring was automatically recocked, allowing for multiple shots without pause.[2] The repeating crossbow magazine held 10 quarrels. Each magazine cost 30 credits and weighed 1.2 kilograms.[1] A variant of the repeating crossbow was the Auto-caster.

The repeating crossbow was used by hunters but was also a collector's item for historical aficionados.[1]
