Heavy Crossbow has a weight of 14 lbs, a speed factor 10 and it requires 12 Strength to wield this weapon, but it's not known if the requirement is applied in the game. Although it has a some disadvantages compared to a standard light crossbow, the advantage is the +2 damage bonus it applies to all quarrels fired from this bow. This appears in Icewind Dale and Icewind Dale II.

Like the light crossbow, this crossbow has -2 THAC0 which the very same weapons lack in the Baldur's Gate serie.
