Chain Shot is a special cannon round made from two smaller cannonballs, joined by a length of chain. When fired, they act as a powerful bolo, which can damage and destroy a ship's masts and sails very quickly, but do very little damage on hulls. With Rank 5 Chain Shot, a pirate can take down most masts with 2 shots.
Once two rounds have been fired, it will take several seconds to reset. You can improve your reload speed by using the Passive Skill Rapid Reload.
