  1. The SRD only gives a means to determine costs and weights of weapons for Large and Small versions based on the Medium weapons. Any other supplied values are the author's best determination.

An arbalest is a larger and more powerful version of the crossbow. Loading a light arbalest is a move action that provokes attacks of opportunity. Normally, operating a light arbalest requires two hands. However, you can shoot, but not load, a light arbalest with one hand at a -2 penalty on attack rolls. You can shoot a light arbalest with each hand, but you take a penalty on attack rolls as if attacking with two light weapons. This penalty is cumulative with the penalty for one-handed firing.
