A firearm with a trumpet shaped barrel, a blunderbuss fires lead shot, making it particularly devastating up close. It becomes increasingly difficult to shoot accurately at a distance. The blunderbuss is tied with the pistol as the cheapest of the firearms, costing only 1,400 GP. The blunderbus only requires one hand free to use, but often misfires. The scattergun is the larger form of the blunderbuss. [1]
