The Arbalest is a Hardmode repeater that drops from The Twins. When fired, four volleys of unevenly spread arrows are shot. The arrows initially start at 50% of their original size, damage, and knockback, but with each use, the arrows eventually reach a cap of 150% of their original stats, along with gaining an increased spread. After the cap is reached, the next use resets all three stats back to 50%.

Its best modifier is Unreal.


  • An arbalest was a late variation of the crossbow coming into use in Europe during the 12th century.
