A rifled musket or rifle musket is a type of firearm made in the mid-19th century. Originally the term referred only to muskets that had been produced as a smoothbore weapon and later had their barrels replaced with rifled barrels. Rifled muskets are superior to their smoothbore counterparts with improved range, accuracy, and ballistics.

Muskets are capable of firing shot. In addition to this, the simple design of the musket allows it to fire a variety of improvised ammunition, such as sand, rocks, nails, etc.

If a rifled musket is used with improvised ammunition, the damage is reduced to 2d6 piercing and the range decreases to 40/120.
