A blunderbuss is a muzzle-loading firearm with a short, large caliber barrel, which is flared at the muzzle, and used with shot. The blunderbuss is an early form of shotgun adapted to military and defensive use. -Quote from Wikipedia
A blunderbuss fires a spread shot similar in pattern to the Viper's Nest, striking multiple enemies with a powerful blast. However, it is a fairly short-ranged weapon and takes longer to reload. The blunderbuss can do the most damage from a single shot. This weapon also does the most damage out of all firearms.

Blunderbusses can use ALL standard forms of ammunition, firing a handful of the same kind as opposed to single pellets.

GAME NOTES: ===
- Short blunderbusses were also referred to as dragons, since they breathed fire. "Dragons" are where the term "Dragoon" came from. Our Navy Dragoons originally used blunderbusses, but POTCO made them use bayonets since the game does not allow humans to shoot other humans.
- They are favored in PvP as they do lots of damage and doesn't need to be aimed spot-on, which can be useful against "jumpers."
