Weapon (pistol, requires attunement), uncommon
A whispering wheellock is a +1 pistol of compact construction, with a dull matte black finish. Its slim profile grants you advantage on Dexterity (Sleight of Hand) checks made to hide the weapon on your person. A whispering wheellock makes no noise when fired. Bullets fired from it likewise make no sound when they hit, instead drawing sound into them, and this sudden inverted cascade of sonic energy deals an extra 1d8 thunder damage on a critical hit and deafens the target if it fails a DC 15 Constitution saving throw. You may also target an unattended object within range and fire the whispering wheellock, creating an area of magical silence centred on that location and lasting 1 minute if the target is within 30 feet, or 5 rounds if the target is more than 30 feet away.
