A repeating crossbow is a simple two-handed ranged weapon in the crossbow weapon group.[AV:10] Compared to the regular crossbow, it is slightly shorter range but individual shots may be reloaded more quickly.
Loading a repeating crossbow is a free action requiring the use of both hands, so long as ammunition remains inside the loaded magazine. A magazine initially contains 10 bolts. Removing an empty magazine and loading a new one is a standard action. One magazine costs 1 gp, and weighs 1 lb.
Ardents, artificers, assassins, avengers, bards, battleminds, clerics, druids, fighters, invokers, paladins, psions, rangers, runepriests, seekers, sorcerers, swordmages, vampires, wardens, warlocks, and warlords are proficient with all simple ranged weapons, including the repeating crossbow.
Other classes do not have proficiency with the repeating crossbow as a class trait, but any character can become proficient by taking a Weapon Proficiency feat.
