Nimbus Quasar's lightning crossbow is a specially designed weapon by Bright Idea. Regular lightning crossbows are mostly used by the Pegasus Royal Guards, to take lightning from quivers filled with storm clouds and load them into the crossbow as arrows. But Bright motivated it to be more effective. Nimbus's crossbows have a full-on metal design, and has a container where he puts scoops of the storm cloud for ammunition. There is trigger mechanism built at his hoof. He bends the ankle of his hoof down to fire, and up to reload.
