The Dwarven Crossbow is a crossbow in The Elder Scrolls V: Dawnguard.


The Dwarven Crossbow is the Dwemer design of the standard crossbow used by the Dawnguard, a faction of vampire hunters.


After acquiring the Dwarven Crossbow Schematic in the second-to-last of the Ancient Technology missions, Sorine Jurard will begin to sell them. She may also teach the Dragonborn how to forge them, if requested.


After obtaining the schematics for the crossbow and asking Sorine Jurard how to make it, it may be forged with the Dwarven Smithing perk. It is only forgeable at the blacksmith's forge in Fort Dawnguard, using the following components:

It is upgradeable by using a Dwarven Metal Ingot at a grindstone, and also benefits from Dwarven Smithing, which doubles the improvement.



  • The Dwarven and Enhanced dwarven crossbows are reloaded slightly differently. When the bolt is placed, the Dragonborn will grab the handle near the bolt, then pull it back. The 2 other crossbows, during reload, have the Dragonborn not grab it.
