Special Traits

  • Grazing Shot (1/Turn). When the pistolero misses an attack, it can choose to have the shot deal half the damage that the attack would have dealt if it were a hit.
  • Firearms Training. Being within 5 feet of a hostile creature doesn’t impose disadvantage on the pistoleror’s heavy pistol ranged attacks.

Actions

  • Multiattack. The pistolero makes two heavy pistol attacks.
  • Heavy Pistol. Ranged Weapon Attack: +6 to hit, range 60/240 ft., one target. Hit: 9 (1d10 + 4) piercing damage.

Reactions

  • Sidestep. When the pistolero is hit with an attack it can see, it can use its reaction to halve the damage it takes, and move up to half its speed without provoking opportunity attacks.

About

These gunslingers combine blinding speed, deadly aim, and panache. A pistolero’s uncanny skill with a firearm is second to none.
