Explosive Crossbow is a two-handed crossbow-type ranged/ melee weapon which fires arrows that damage enemies in a small area. The projectile does critical damage to anything struck by the bolt. The secondary ability, Cross Hit, is a melee strike which deals critical damage to foes directly struck by it, while pushing others away, similar to how Wave of Denial behaves.
Details [ ]
Fired bolts explode, damaging enemies within range and line of sight of the explosion's center and cause strong knockback. The explosion itself has a radius of 2 tiles.
The explosion and the bolt cannot damage enemies simultaneously.
The secondary attack, like the main attack, deals
critical damage to enemies struck directly with the crossbow, while enemies hit by the explosion take normal damage. The explosion from both the ranged attack and the melee attack briefly stun enemies. The ranged attack stuns for 0.2 seconds while the melee attack stuns for 0.5 seconds.

Location [ ]
The blueprint for this item in the
Promenade of the Condemned is locked behind three Enigma doors which require Gardener's Keys to be opened, they can be found in the following locations:
There is a place to dive through the ground using the Ram Rune where one Gardener's Key can be found.
There is a tower to find that you can climb up with the Spider Rune where another Gardener's Key can be found. Alternatively, the key can be grabbed with your head using the Homunculus Rune.
There is a potted rose that is on the ground somewhere in the Promenade, dive three times and it will give you the last Gardener's Key
If done correctly, stomping it once will cause the rose to yell "Hey", the second time "What the......?" and the third stomp will cause the key to spawn.
