  • Special Effects:
    • Pressing the main attack button makes the crossbow fire a bolt that freezes enemies for 1.5 seconds. Upon thaw, enemies are slowed for 1 second. This attack can be fired automatically by holding down the main attack button.
    • Pressing the secondary attack button fires a piercing bolt that deals critical damage to frozen enemies. It also knocks out arrows stuck in enemies that are frozen.
