The Hellfire Engine Crossbow is a craftable weapon that requires three components, all found in the Steelwatch Foundry [X: -291, Y: -163]:

  • Targeting Module: On the main floor, located on the table next to the label on the southwest side of the factory. [X: -357, Y: -157].
  • Steel Watcher Arm: Also on the main floor, placed on the table to the southeast side of the factory. [X: -280, Y: -165].
  • Watcher Crossbow Blueprint: Inside the Security Office, resting on top of a table with books and scrolls. [X: -330, Y: -157].

Once you’ve secured all three ingredients, head to the crafting table in the same office where you found the blueprint. Interact with the table, place the items in the empty boxes of the crafting window, and click the ‘combine’ button. Voila! You now have your very own Hellfire Engine Crossbow in your inventory.
