Arbalest (5e Equipment)
From D&D Wiki
Martial Ranged Weapons
A powerful, siege defense crossbow with a windlass mechanism, used for drawing back the string. Being prone while attacking with this weapon does not impose disadvantage.
This weapon has the special draw property: Due to the time and effort required to operate the windlass mechanism, you must use an Action or Bonus Action and forfeit movement on your turn to ready another piece of ammunition.
