Hand Crossbow, Repeating (5e Equipment)
From D&D Wiki
Repeating hand crossbow
Martial Ranged Weapons
This is a one-handed variant of the repeating crossbow. Spanning the crossbow once provides enough stored energy to fire three bolts in succession, but the smaller bolts do not have the impact of a larger crossbow.
Some repeating hand crossbows are able to launch three bolts at once. When you roll for damage with this variant, roll 1d4 three times and take the best result.
