Bolts are the ammunition used by crossbows. They are made using a combination of the Smithing and Fletching skills, the initial Bolts being made with the Smithing, and feathers being added with Fletching. Tips made from different gems can be added, and subsequently enchanted, adding possible effects when the bolt is shot Different types of bolts can be stored in a bolt pouch to conserve space. Bolts sometimes survive shots, so you can pick up your fired bolts.
