Crossbow Bolts

Crossbow bolts are the standard type of crossbow ammunition, and the first and most basic accessory that Corvo Attano and Emily Kaldwin receives for the weapon. Daud uses them for his wristbow, calling them wristbow bolts. Though the bolts will often break after use, they can sometimes be retrieved from corpses. If an enemy is unaware, a bolt to the head will kill them instantly. Though they do not do as much damage in a fight as the standard ammunition of the average pistol, they are much more accurate, have better range, and are also much quieter.
