First game

Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn

The Taksh (Japanese: タクシュ Takhsh) is a rare crossbow weapon which appears only in Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn. It is the game's middle-of-the-road crossbow, and in addition to its respectable might, it also offers an increased crit stat which works effectively with the high critical hit rates of the four crossbow-wielding classes: the Sniper, Marksman, Warrior, and Reaver.

Like the other crossbows but unlike regular bows, the Taksh can can attack adjacent and distant enemies alike. In exchange its damage calculation completely ignores the user's strength stat and is based only on its own might, giving it a fixed, mostly consistent damage output no matter who uses it.
