A Gun is defined in Pirates Online as any firearm. This includes:
- Pistol - A single-barrelled handgun.
- Repeater - A double or triple-barrelled handgun.
- Musket - A long-barrelled, long-ranged weapon.
- Blunderbuss - A powerful muzzle-loading, short-ranged predecessor to the shotgun.
- Bayonet - A long-barreled, long-ranged musket with a spear attached to the barrel for melee combat.
Gun is also the skill that covers the use of these weapons and their ammunition.
NOTE: Originally, the Gun skill was just called Pistol.
NOTE: The bigger the gun or more barrels on the gun the longer it will take to reload.
NOTE: Guns cannot be used on human enemies.
