Description

Demon Machine
has the very rare property of firing piercing bolts and also making its projectiles explosive. In that sense, it is the more powerful crossbow counterpart of
Kuko Shakaku
. (Others include
Hellcast
and
Raven Claw
)

The area damage from its explosive bolts will be boosted by skills adding to fire damage such as
Enchant
and
Holy Fire
, so this can be a quite powerful weapon allowing an enchant sorceress solo most game content, or a great aid to a "Bowadin".

In my experience, this xbow is highly underrated compared to Buriza, even though the Buriza is more famous, this xbow is imo the better elemental weapon, as the exploding
Bolts
have an AoE radius in addition to the piercing effect. The Aoe range is short, but is great for highly clustered groups of enemies, which often happens in tight, enclosed maps such as tunnels. This xbow will rekt anything in NM, and some builds can actually make it Hell difficulty viable (with proper supporting gear). I use one of these on a bowazon as a swap weapon to deal with physical immunes, mainly Wraiths, and although it's not a perfect solution, it works. Also, unless your build can get up to 140+ STR, do not up these to elite. Most players keep these as exceptionals since they are mainly used for the exploding
Bolts
.

D2R 2.6 made this weapon into a viable p8 build for an
Enchant
sorceress thanks to
Fire Mastery
now applying not only to
Enchant
skill but to ranged fire damage you deal when already enchanted, essentially "double dipping". Previously only melee weapons worked this way.
On top, explosive bolts carry the fire damage per hit and again per explosion, essentially "quadruple dipping". :P

The workhorse weapon of the Enchantress and an excellent example of a weapon that far surpasses the sum of its parts.
