Longbow of Extra Shots (+1) Only Shoots Once

Reported by: ashes999 Owned by:
Milestone: Triage Keywords: extra-shots


I just found a Heavy Crossbow of Extra Shots (x4) (12, 10) (+1). When I fire it, I notice that it only uses one bolt; judging by the status messages, it seems like enemies are only being hit once.

When I press shift-C, the character screen assures me that I get "Shots: 2/turn," so I expected two shots to fire (to hit/miss status messages and two bolts expended).

I'm playing as a Half-Troll Warrior; I heard that bows of extra shots are the only way to get more than one shot off at a time, but I don't seem to be getting that.

I'm not sure if it's important, but my strength is 18/160 and my dexterity is 15. Attached is my save file.

This is using the latest production version (3.1.1) from the official website.

This isn't a bug. If you double the number of shots per turn the game doesn't fire them for you, it just makes every shot take half as long. So in one normal turn, you can still shoot two shots with that bow.

Can we at least update the documentation/wiki to make it more clear? It's definitely unclear from the existing literature how this is supposed to work.
