Automatic Crossbows 0.2.1
by J3X & Rizing


!!! DAWNGUARD REQUIRED !!!
!!! WORKS WITHOUT SKSE !!!


Please note that I can't create new models so don't request any. If you want Van Hellsing's crossbow then create the models for it yourself.

STORY:
The Thalmor have found some old Dwemer schematics and are rebuilding the Dwemers most fearsome weapons - automatic crossbows!
Scouts have found that they have converted Reachwind Eyrie, a Dwemer tower southeast of Markarth and northeast of Dushnikh Yal, into a research outpost. Can you stop them before it's too late?


CONTENT:
This mod adds 3 automatic Dwemer crossbows to the game;
  • Dwemer Cheiroballistra, a heavy semi automatic crossbow.
  • Dwemer Polybolos, a light burst firing automatic crossbow. Hold down your mouse when you are firing this weapon otherwise you will reload it.
  • Automatic Dwemer Crossbow, a fully automatic crossbow.

You can find them and some schematics for them (apart from the Automatic Dwemer one, Dwarven Smithing perk needed) at Reachwind Eyrie. All crossbows can be used by any NPC.
This mod is also intented as a modder resource, feel free to use the included scripts to create your own automatic weapons!
I hope that you find the crossbows balanced, otherwise please let me know.
