The ballista was a highly accurate weapon (there are many accounts of single soldiers being picked off by ballista op­er­a­tors), but some design aspects meant it could com­pro­mise its accuracy for range. The maximum range was over 450 m, but ef­fec­tive combat range for many targets was far shorter.
