Round Shot is a basic cannon skill, firing a standard ball of metal designed to puncture a ship's hull. All pirates have the ability to use this ammunition, without ever running out. Each additional level of this skill adds to the effective damage. But, damage will depend on the pirate's cannon skill and any bonus from special equipment like Cannon Rams. Using this ammunition to sink ships rewards most the most rep.
To use Round Shot, be stationed at a cannon and press 1 or click . After firing Round Shot it will take a few moments to reload your cannon. You can improve your reload speed by using the Passive Skill Rapid Reload.
