This short musket has a flared barrel and is designed to fire shot rather than bullets. Unlike a hand cannon, blunderbusses require specially-made pellets rather than using whatever’s at hand. In a pinch, a blunderbuss can be loaded with improvised shot, but its damage is reduced to 2d4 and until the gun is cleaned during a short rest, any misfire result breaks the barrel (as the improvised shot has compromised it). In melee the blunderbuss may be used as a two-handed club dealing 1d6 damage.
