In-Game Description

An extremely rare rapid-firing crossbow.
Fires three successive bolts by means of an elaborate mechanism. Inflict heavy damage by making all three shots count.
Despite its use as a weapon, this crossbow is also a priceless work of art, and it bears resemblance to a musical instrument.
Skill: Tackle
Lunge into a shoulder tackle, pushing back enemies to create distance.


Found in the Grand Archives, on top of a bookshelf on the right wing of the building.

Make way through the initial section of the archives and to the third floor, passing by the big wax container and a darkened room. Upon exiting the latter, head straight and either jump or roll diagonally and to the left from the top of the (kickable) ladder to land over a series of bookshelves where the crossbow lies.

It is advisable to equip the Silvercat Ring or cast Spook, and also deal with the Crystal Sage before attempting the jump.




Reinforced with Titanite.
