The largest personal crossbow in use and the favored weapon of Oathsworn sniper teams, the Grand Arbalest is an oversized spring steel crossbow, more of a small ballista. Most models are nearly as long as the height of the wielder. It is considered a Superior ranged weapon.

In order to take advantage of its proficiency bonus, the wielder must take a minor action to brace it against his shoulder and set its bipod after each time he moves. Mundane ammunition for a Grand Arbalest costs double that of normal crossbow ammunition. Specialized ammunition has the same effective cost.
