…The gift of death is most often given by those who have mastered the art of patience… – in-game description


The Arbalest is a light energy weapon. It was released in version 3.6.0.

This long ranged energy weapon can bypass built-in or mounted Ancile shields.

The Arbalest is similar to the Trebuchet, due to damage type, the range (1100 meters), and that it does more damage when fully charged. It is also comparable to the Gekko, in terms of damage type and range, but with different firing mechanics. The Arbalest having higher burst DPS when fully charged, but the Gekko having higher sustained DPS.

Good options for mounting this weapon could be to pair it with Trebuchets. A Natasha, with 2 Arbalests, paired with 2 Trebuchets, makes for a solid low budget sniper. A Gl. Patton, with 4 of these could replace the 4 Gekko version for more burst damage. Lastly, a Jesse, with quad Arbalests, could be used instead of the Gl. Patton, as the reload time of the weapon is almost identical to the Quick Draw ability's cooldown.
