Handheld Cannon (5e Equipment)

From D&D Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search
Stub Logo.png This page is incomplete and/or lacking flavor. Reason: So is this a handheld cannon or a blast rifle? Wouldn't any rifle (especially any renaissance rifle) have "large backward propulsion force", and thus the Strength requirement? The special property just reads like word salad. Why would "the rifle's force" change how it performs in 1 or 2 hands when that happens after it fires? "Firing this weapon within 5 feet of yourself", so firing the weapon ever? "This also damages all enemies within 5 ft", automatic half damage to every creature except allies is a lot.

Blast Rifle

Blast Rifle 60 gp 1d10 piercing 8 lb. Heavy, Ranged (30/120), loading, misfire (1), special

This weapon is a short barreled cannon-like rifle with a robust firing mechanism. To wield this weapon, your Strength needs to be at least 13 because of the weapon's large backward propulsion force. It uses shells and is reloaded like a break action weapon. The whole weapon is roughly 2-2.5 feet long so that it can be used in one or two hands. Ammunition costs 10 gp per shell, and is usually sold in bundles of 3.

Special This weapon can be held in one hand but if fired in one hand, your range is a maximum of 30 ft. with any target beyond this causing an miss because of the rifle's force. Firing this weapon within 5 feet of yourself will cause you to also receive damage, although only half damage. This also damages all enemies within 5 ft of the target.
