This strange weapon is the result of a crossbow savvy adventurer going crazy with technology she recovered from a mind flayer base. It is a mix between a coilgun and a sniper crossbow. Overall it an extremely odd weapon, but rather effective... if a bit anachronistic.
It behave as a +1 coilgun that can only fire bolts, however it uses the damage, range and critical value of a sniper crossbow. It similarly can only be fired two-handed, bonus while prone and has the extended range sneak attack abilities of the sniper crossbow. Sadly the bolt need to be reloaded after every shot, which require a full-round action. Proficiency with either the coilgun or the sniper crossbow grant proficiency with the coilbow.
Thanks to increased stability, the user do not need to make a strength check when using the charged attack with the coilbow.
