Pepperbox Revolver (4e Equipment)

|Pepperbox Revolver||+2||1d6||13/26||50 gp||4 lb||Firearm||Load Free*, Off-hand, Powder Crit|
This flintlock pistol has four barrels around an axis. After a shot is fired, the barrels are rotated by hand to quickly prepare the next round.
The revolver is light enough that you can hold it and attack effectively with it while holding a weapon in your main hand. You can't attack with both weapons in the same turn, unless you have a power that lets you do so, but you can attack with either weapon.
- Load Free
The pepperbox revolver can fire four shots before it needs reloading.
It takes two minor actions to prepare two of the four barrels: One minor to load the gunpowder, and one minor to load the balls. The Speed Loader feat reduces this to one minor action per two barrels. If a power allows you to hit multiple targets, the additional load time is accounted for in the power.
- Powder Crit
The flintlock pistol deals more damage when you score a critical hit with it, though not as much as a High Crit weapon. It deals an extra 1 damage at 1st–10th levels, an extra 2 damage at 11th–20th levels, and an extra 3 damage at 21st–30th levels. This extra damage is in addition to any critical damage the weapon supplies if it is a magic weapon.
