Talk:Bayonet Rifle (5e Equipment)

I feel the need to say a bayonet is typically used for stabbing, not slashing.

This weapon ought to be made into two weapons. The rifle and the bayonet. PunnyDM12 (talk) 22:17, 21 November 2018 (MST)

  • I elected not to, as otherwise it'd straight up be an upgrade over a rifle without a bayonet. Varkarrus (talk) 14:42, 23 November 2018 (MST)
You could always just have a bayonet be a dagger with the special property. The property being it can be attached to a rifle (to effectively make a spear). A bayonet does upgrade a rifle. That was kinda the point. Just my two-cents though. PunnyDM12 (talk) 16:45, 23 November 2018 (MST)
Oh, dont worry, I understand fully, and your two cents aren't unwanted. I know that in real life, adding a bayonet to a rifle would not reduce its accuracy or the effectiveness of its bullet. Simply put, I just wanted a reason why a player would want to choose between using a bayonet rifle vs a regular one besides price. I often feel realism should take a backseat for balanced mechanics and fun. Varkarrus (talk) 17:04, 23 November 2018 (MST)
"damage:1d4 slashing"
" 1d4 piercing damage"
So which is it? Quincy (talk) 16:56, 23 November 2018 (MST)
Oops. Will fix. I changed the damage type in one place (as per PunnyDM12's advice) but not the other. Varkarrus (talk) 17:04, 23 November 2018 (MST)
