It's one of the odd breakpoints in Legacy edition like Fencer where the advanced combat talents were made cheaper, easier and more effective.

Light Crossbow sniper vs gargoyle worked example:

Flying target is -4 to be hit minus another point per 10 feet (ITL 104)
So 32 hexes straight up is adjDX 14 -4 (flying) -12 (height) -4 (distance with ITL 125 adjustment for Missile Weapons) = adjDX -6 (hope for an automatic hit at best)

Second turn the gargoyle is 16 hexes above the sniper so adjDX is 14 -4 (flying) -6 (height) -3 (distance) = adjDX 1 (hope for an automatic hit at best)

Third turn the gargoyle lands on the sniper and hence they are in HTH so no third crossbow shot.
