A repeating crossbow bolt used as a melee weapon is treated as a light improvised weapon (–4 penalty on attack rolls) and deals damage as a dagger of its size (crit ×2). Repeating crossbow bolts come in a wooden case that holds 5. A bolt that hits its target is destroyed; one that misses has a 50% chance of being destroyed or lost.
