"The Dwemer crossbow is an ingenious device that permits someone with only modest training and skill to fire a missile bolt massive enough to penetrate heavy armor."
Garothmuk gro-Muzgub[src]

The Enhanced Dwarven Crossbow is a type of crossbow found in The Elder Scrolls V: Dawnguard.

CharacteristicsEdit

The Enhanced Dwarven Crossbow is identical to the Dwarven Crossbow in appearance and damage, but ignores 50% of armor.

It represents the pinnacle of handheld ranged weaponry in all of Skyrim, with devastating firepower and a relatively fast reload time. With the proper perks and skill in Archery, and a few dozen Dwarven Bolts, this weapon turns low-level characters into formidable fighters.

AcquisitionEdit

An Enhanced Dwarven Crossbow is available for purchase from Sorine Jurard at Fort Dawnguard after completing the last of the six "Ancient Technology" quests. She will also train the Dragonborn how to smith one if requested (Not available if the Dragonborn sides with Harkon during Bloodline).

SmithingEdit

After obtaining the schematics for it and asking Sorine Jurard how to create it, it may be smithed with the Dwarven Smithing perk. It can only be made at the blacksmith's forge in Fort Dawnguard and using the following components:

It can be upgraded with a Dwarven Metal Ingot at a grindstone, and also benefits from the Dwarven Smithing perk, which doubles the improvement.

VariantsEdit

TriviaEdit

  • The Enhanced Dwarven Crossbow does more damage and is more cumbersome than a dragonbone bow, making it the Archery weapon with the highest damage and weight in the game.
  • The 50% armor ignored is not an enchantment. The crossbow can still be enchanted like a normal weapon.
  • Calcelmo may ask for this weapon, sending a note by courier.
