Arquebus (4e Equipment)
From D&D Wiki
Simple Ranged Weapons
|Arquebus||+2||1d8||15/30||35 gp||6 lb.||Firearm||Load Two Minor, Powder Crit|
The arquebus is a smoothbore, matchlock firearm. It does not have the power or accuracy of a bow, and carrying blackpowder can be dangerous. However, almost anyone can train to use an arquebus, and in a much shorter time.
- Load Minor
It takes a two minor action to reload an arquebus: one to load the powder and one to load the ball. The Speed Loader feat reduces the reload time to one minor action.
- Powder Crit
The arquebus deals more damage when you score a critical hit with it, though not as much as a High Crit weapon. It deals an extra 1 damage at 1st–10th levels, an extra 2 damage at 11th–20th levels, and an extra 3 damage at 21st–30th levels. This extra damage is in addition to any critical damage the weapon supplies if it is a magic weapon.
