    I don't agree that it should reduce the range and fire rate. The crossbow doesn't have power, infinity, or flame. Don't give it more disadvantages in combat.

    Yeah currently multi-shot fires 3 arrows in a horizontal line, which in practice isn't that useful as usually only 1 arrow hits the target at mid to long range. So people tend to avoid this enchantment. My solution is to make it so the crossbow fires 5-10 arrows in a small random burst. This would be very interesting because if you are really close to the enemy and fire the crossbow a lot of the arrows would get absorbed into the enemy and each arrow would add damage resulting in a massive amount of damage (this could also really damage shields). However at long range the majority of the arrows would miss resulting in a small damaging shot; it would be useful for players that aren't good at aiming at long range as there is more chance of hitting the target with more arrows. To balance this feature you could make it so each time you fire, it uses up 5-10 arrows which would eat up your arrow supply very quickly. Or you could make it fire weaker arrows that are smaller and deal half the damage of regular arrows. Hopefully this will make the multi-shot enchantment fun and more people will use it.

    i agree with both blast burner and  mickeyjimbo but i think there should be little to no spread after initial spread is delt. because then at far ranges it wont be effective. and to be honest enchantments are ment to be good without consiqunces (except levels), so if you want you could add extreme acurracy. (it's late, that's why my spelling sucks)

    If you run straight up to a full HP witch and shoot it with a pre-loaded Multishot crossbow, it dies instantly. That's apparently how Mojang wants you to use it.
