A Bayonet is a musket with a bladed instrument affixed to the front of the barrel. It is used like a spear once the rifle becomes unusable, or when an enemy is too close to shoot. Generally, bayonets have less firepower than their musket counterparts, but make up for it with the extra melee attack option.
A pirate using a bayonet is able to target human enemies and attack them with the gun's blade. You can also shoot just like the musket, but shots will however not deal any damage to human enemies.
Historically, the bayonet refers only to the blade affixed to the barrel.
Types of Bayonet
*There are no Legendary or crude bayonets
The use of a bayonet is much similar to the use of a pistol. When the target turns red, clicking the mouse or clicking control will fire the musket. When the target turns yellow, the Bayonet will be used. You can also use the effects of your ammunition while attacking with the bayonet. Select the ammo you want to use by clicking it or pressing the correct number, and then take aim when the target is yellow. When it is fully charged, let go and the ammunition's effect should carry on through the bayonet (eg. Venom Shot gives poison effect).

Improved and specialized ammunition is also available as the pirate improves their ability with the handgun.

Royal Navy Cadets, Guards, Veterans and Dragoons also carry these weapons. They never shoot at pirates - either honoring the Pirate's Code or 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.
Bayonets must be attached to a musket to be used. Enemies out of range of the bayonet attack can be targeted and shot with the musket. Once they are close enough for the musket to be ineffective, you will be able to strike them with the bayonet.
