The wyvern crossbow is a two-handed crossbow that requires level 85 Ranged to wield. It was released along with wyverns, which have a 1/2,000 chance on task, 1/10,000 off-task chance of dropping the crossbow.
It uses wyvern spines as ammunition, which are a common drop from wyverns. However, any bolt ammunition can be used with the crossbow, including Dragonbane bolts and Ascension bolts (which will have their damage scaled down to match wyvern spines).
It has a damage-over-time effect, appearing as poison hit splats, that ramps up in damage the longer it is in combat against a specific foe. The hits must not miss - missing attacks on the mob for 3 seconds will cause the poison damage to reset back down. Its poison damage over time effect stacks with both Cinderbane gloves and any weapon poison.
The crossbow will degrade to a broken state after 60,000 charges of combat (but loses 2 charges per hit, so has a minimum duration of 5 hours of combat). It can be fixed by Repair NPCs such as Bob in Lumbridge, or at an armour stand in a player-owned house. A full repair, without discounts, costs 4,125,000 coins.

The base repair cost of the Wyvern crossbow when completely degraded to 0.0% item charge is 4,125,000 coins. It can be repaired by:
- Bob - the axe seller in Lumbridge
- Tindel Marchant - the weapon and armour repairman at Port Khazard
- Dunstan - the smith in Burthorpe
- Squire - in the workshop area of the Void Knights' Outpost
If it is only partially degraded, then the cost of a full repair is multiplied by the percentage of item charge that needs to be repaired to produce the current repair cost.
