More bolts per quarrel

Users who are viewing this thread


Currently all elite crossbow men have only one quarrel to hold a shield, making them worse ranged units than bowmen due to their highly limited ammo supply. Bolts and arrows are also very samey in item properties. I think one way to fix both of these would be to make bolts have more bolts (~25-30) by default since they're smaller and lighter than arrows.

You’re lucky heavy crossbow troops aren’t represented with historic accuracy: they were usually two man crews. One move the shield as a firing platform, and the other fired and reloaded the crossbow.

This may be their reasoning behind half the ammo.

As far as fewer bolts in a case then arrows in a quiver: I don’t know WHY this was a thing, but I understand it WAS a thing. Perhaps someone else could throw out some incite.
