There are variations of each of the above listed crossbows.  The description and effect of each variation is defined below.

Aquatic: An aquatic crossbow is designed to be used under water as well as out of water without penalty.  To make a crossbow of this type requires a craft check equal to the standard crossbow plus 5.  They cost twice as much to make.  The weight of the crossbow is increased by 10%.  The crossbow suffers no penalty to hit under water.

Repeating: A repeating crossbow holds a cartridge of bolts within the crossbow for easy reloading.  These are difficult to make, requiring a craft check double that of the typical crossbow of that type.  They are expensive, costing five times as much to make.  The weight of the crossbow is increased by 20%.  A repeating crossbow increases the rate of fire of the crossbow by 2 steps along the following chart: 1/3 rounds; 1/2 rounds; 1 round; 3/2 rounds; 2 round; 5/2 rounds.  Proficiency in a repeating version of a crossbow is more difficult than the standard version of the crossbow.  If the normal crossbow is a simple weapon, the repeating version of the crossbow is a martial weapon.  If the normal crossbow is a martial weapon, the repeating version of the crossbow is an exotic weapon.  If the normal crossbow is an exotic weapon, the repeating version of the crossbow is another exotic weapon.  If you are proficient in the standard form of a crossbow, you may use the repeating version as if it were a normal crossbow without penalty.
