Wheellock Musket.jpg


A Musket is a single-shot, muzzle-loaded, smooth-bore firearm. It is a long-ranged weapon that can also mount a Bayonet attached on the front. The musket can do significant damage at medium and long range, however it cannot be used at short or point-blank range.

Enemies with Muskets

A Navy Soldier with a Musket

Royal Navy Cadets, Guards, Veterans and Dragoons also carry these weapons. They never shoot at pirates because they have orders to bring pirates in alive.

Instead, they opt for using the bayonet, or smashing the pirate with the butt of the gun.
