The Armadyl crossbow and its off-hand counterpart is somewhat of a niche choice, due to the fact that there's no tier 75 bolts in the game. Higher level bolts can be used, but they require corresponding Ranged level to equip and the bolts damage is scaled back down to tier 75. Players may chose to use the dwarven hand cannon as an alternative, as it is a tier 75 ranged weapon as well and has ammunition corresponding of its tier. The hand cannon also costs much less than the Armadyl crossbow and its off-hand counterpart, although the completion of Forgiveness of a Chaos Dwarf quest is required to wield the weapon. Additionally, the hand cannon occasionally explodes without warning.
