Just make it a Melee Weapon... Make the animation for firing it like the animation from old SWG!

Crossbow = Ranged slot, instead of pulling out a bow you simply pull and fire it from your hip! (it fires arrows!)

No flamethrowers, but yeah, put in crossbows.

They had crossbows (at least in this pre-production shot) at one time, but they never made it into the game.

I thought I remembered that right.

Of course way way back at the beginning they also said that priests & mages would have a ranged weapon as well and we have all seen how long it took for that to be implimented =).

Seems like crossbows would be an really easy addition though. Would basically just be a bow with a different appearance from a gameplay perspective.

Well, it would be really fun as a tank because I don't even use my bow often, and it looks silly when I do.

What would be cool is if you still held your primary weapon, then pulled the crossbow out from your hip. fired it, then pushed it back into your hip to reload it. (like a semi automatic.)

The aITEM -1590750033 128159371 0:[Cinder Bow]/a is about as close to a tinkered flame thrower as I could manage in the ranged appearance for my conjy.

well if they were added i think we'd see a few people running around with a crossbow and a white robe pretending to be a pre-release assassin from assassin's creed. (lol)

That item looks kind of bad. ;/

Personally I think flamethrowers are a bad idea, but crossbows in general for any bow using class would be nice to see.

Now come on! Gnomes blew up the moon! You don't think they'd come up with mechanomagical flame throwers? Such a weapon should always have a (rare) chance of exploding and killing the user, though.

The Crossbow actually made it into the game, but ONLY as a wall decoration (if it is added make it a Weapon that is Tinkerer Class needed rather than Adventure Class)
