Special Traits

  • Close-quarters shot. Being within 5 feet of a hostile creature when the pistol pirate makes a ranged attack doesn’t impose disadvantage to hit.
  • Dead Eye. The pirate sniper ignores half or three quarters cover.
  • Dead Shot. The pirate sniper does an extra die of damage with its rifled musket (included in its attack).


  • Multiattack. The pistol pirate makes two attacks with its rifled musket.
  • Longsword. Melee Weapon Attack: +3 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 6 (1d8 + 2) slashing damage.
  • Rifled musket. Ranged Weapon Attack: +6 to hit, reach 5 ft. or range 150/600 ft., one target. Hit: 13 (2d8 + 4) bludgeoning and piercing damage.


While most pirates are content to brandish their cutlasses, these pirates are equally likely to draw down on a foe with their barrel of their pistol as the edge of their blade.
