The Alchemic Carbine is a crossbow-type ranged weapon which poisons enemies hit by its bolts.


  • Special Effects:
    • Launches a flask that does some contact damage and disperses a poison cloud around it as the projectile flies and shatters.
    • Breach Bonus: -0.7
      • Base Breach Damage: 3
      • Base Breach DPS: 3
    • Attack Duration: 1.1 seconds
      • Charge: 0.3
      • Lock: 0.18
      • Cooldown: 0.8
      • Tags: HasBullets, Ranged, NoCritical, Poison
      • Legendary Version: Hemlock
      • Forced Affix: Poison Damage (Weapon)
        • "+80% damage on a poisoned target."


    • Despite its low damage, Hokuto's Bow Icon.png Hokuto's Bow can drastically increase its effectiveness by adding the damage bonus to every poison tick.
    • Due to its inherent ability to inflict poison, it can works well with Sadist's Stiletto Icon.png Sadist's Stiletto, Hemorrhage Icon.png Hemorrhage and Snake Fangs Icon.png Snake Fangs, all of which inflict critical hits on poisoned enemies. Furthermore, it can be reliably triggered since it does not have any ammunition and can be used to the player's desire.
      • It can also be paired with Acrobatipack Mutation Icon.png Acrobatipack if the player does not want to use the Carbine for practical combat.


    The blueprint for the Alchemic Carbine is located in a secret area of the Ancient Sewers, above a big pool of poisonous water.[1] It is very likely to fall and get stuck in the poisonous water, therefore it is not advised to enter this room while cursed. The secret area will keep spawning until the blueprint is claimed.


    • This item was previously named Alchemic Gun and Alchemic Rifle, although both are inaccurate as it resembles a small crossbow.
    • This item may be a reference to Lucie from Battlerite, a character who is also an alchemist and carries a similar weapon, hence its namesake.


    • 0.7: Can no longer have the "Toxic cloud on death" affix.
    • 2.1: Scaling changed from Str Skill.png Brutality/ Tactics to Skill Stat.png Tactics.
    • 2.4:
      • Base poison DPS decreased from 20 to 13.
      • Poison effect duration decreased from 6 seconds to 4.
      • Poison cloud duration decreased from 6 seconds to 3.
