An arbalest is a larger
and more powerful version of the crossbow. Loading a heavy arbalest is a full-round
action that provokes attacks of opportunity. Normally, operating a heavy arbalest
requires two hands. However, you can shoot, but not load, a heavy arbalest with
one hand at a -4 penalty on attack rolls. You can shoot a heavy arbalest with
each hand, but you take a penalty on attack rolls as if attacking with two one-handed
weapons. This penalty is cumulative with the penalty for one-handed firing.
