To get the Firestoker crossbow in Baldur’s Gate 3 you need to find your way to the Abandoned Refuge within the Grymforge, then locate the room across from the docks where it waits in an Opulent Chest. First, to get to the Grymforge you first need to find your way into the Underdark. There are several points of entry into the Underdark from the main surface of the Act 1 map. We recommend using the Well in the Blighted Village. This will take you down into the Whispering Depths where you’ll have to face the Phase Spider Matriarch. Afterward, cast Feather Fall and jump down into the glowing green chasm.

Next, you’ll need to head west from your landing spot towards the Decrepit Village. There will be several Duergar and you can either negotiate passage on the ship or kill the Duergar and take the boat yourself. Consequently, it will carry you to the docks of the Abandoned Refuge in the Grymforge.

Finally, after the dialogue scene, move around to the other side of the docks. You can pick up the Fetish of Callarduran Smoothhands from one of the dead Deep Gnomes you find there. There will also be a set of large double iron doors that require you to pass a 12 DC Sleight of Hand check.

Then, head inside and turn immediately to the right, to another locked door. This time you’ll have to pass an 18 DC Sleight of Hand check. Additionally, be prepared because once the door opens you’ll have to face a group of enemies. These are basic enemies and shouldn’t give you too much trouble.

Afterward, head over the Opulent chest at the foot of the Shar statue. Inside you’ll find the Firestoker crossbow.
