- Hand Crossbows generally have lower DPS than pistols but can now deal more reliable damage. (Details: Pistol base damage: 50-100; Hand crossbow base damage: 70-70)

This mod adds new weapons called Hand Crossbows. They are treated as a pistol unittype, for now, and use pistol animations. They also spawn in the game along with pistols at blacksmiths, drops from monsters, etc. Any skill in the game that requires a ranged-weapon and/or pistol will work with hand crossbows. Generally, they have lower DPS than pistols but can deal more consistent, reliable damage and shoot slightly further away. Regular attacks can ignore 15% of armor. To help the balance between pistols and hand crossbows, all pistols are buffed by giving them +5 knockback.
I made this mod mainly for the aesthetic look of the crossbows but did my best to implement them into the game without making pistols obsolete. All uniques are fully affix'd and balanced them as best as I could. Until we figure out how to make new unittypes with GUTS, hand crossbows may become its own separate unittype in the future. This mod is far from done; no mod is ever finished as there's always something to improve upon. So if you have any feedback, comments, and questions, please feel free to share!
