4. The hp value given is for Medium armor, weapons, and shields. Divide by 2 for each size category of the item smaller than Medium, or multiply it by 2 for each size category larger than Medium.
A strange hybrid between a repeating heavy crossbow and a heavy pick, it is treated as a martial weapon for dwarves. When used in melee it has the damage, crit and properties of a heavy pick of it size. Thanks to it form, firing in melee with a dwarven guardbow do not provoke an attack of opportunity.
Like the repeating heavy crossbow holds 5 crossbow bolts. As long as it holds bolts, you can reload it by pulling the reloading lever (a free action). Loading a new case of 5 bolts is a full-round action, but thanks to it form it does not provokes attacks of opportunity.
You can fire a repeating dwarven guardbow with one hand or fire a dwarven guardbow in each hand in the same manner as you would a normal heavy crossbow. However, you must fire the weapon with two hands in order to use the reloading lever, and you must use two hands to load a new case of bolts.
