Slash targets with a single precise bolt from Garuda's signature crossbow. Alt-fire to let loose a barrage of bolts. All bolts have a chance to cause bleeding and headshots have a chance to increase reload speed.

The Nagantaka is Garuda's signature crossbow, firing Slash b Slash-based bolts with a very high status chance, in a semi-automatic fashion. It features an Alternate Fire that unleashes all remaining rounds in the magazine in a rapid-fire volley. Additionally, killing an enemy through a headshot will boost the speed of Nagantaka's next reload.
