News about Skyrim’s upcoming Dawnguard DLC has been the main topic lately. One of the biggest aspects of the expansion that was revealed is the addition of crossbows. Anyone who has taken part in ranged combat in Skyrim knows how exciting it is to come across a new bow. Many assumed that various crossbows would be littered throughout the add-on content, but as I found out during a quick Q&A with the developers, that isn’t the case.
Dawnguard will grant players access to a single crossbow and it is simply titled “crossbow” in the inventory. The only variation comes in the form of enhancing the bow (like every other weapon) and using different bolt types, which have been specifically crafted for the new weapon. Other than that, your Dragonborn will only ever obtain one crossbow. Hopefully this hasn’t disappointed rogues and rangers too much.
