This mod adds four new weapons: Pistol, Double-Barreled Pistol, Musket, and Revolver. The Pistol fires a bullet, a one hit kill on any mob, and must be reloaded after each shot. It also isn’t too accurate. The double-barreled pistol and revolver do the same, but can hold two and six shots at a time, respectively. The musket fires one shot at a time, but is extremely accurate while requiring twice the gunpowder to load. It also has a bayonet, allowing it to do damage equivalent to an iron sword while melee attacking.
Loading these flintlock weapons in real life is quite cumbersome, and this mod replicates that. To load a weapon, you must craft together an unloaded one, gunpowder, and your ammo. The multi-shot weapons can do this multiple times to become fully loaded.
There are also two different ammo types: round shot and buckshot. Round shot can be loaded into any weapon, and fires a single, damaging bullet. Buckshot can only be loaded into the pistol and double-barreled pistol, and fires a spray of bullets that can damage multiple enemies.
A bit about the damage:
Pistols, Muskets, and Double-barreled pistols are a guaranteed one-hit kill on any regular mob (excluding the ender dragon and wither). As I don’t fully understand the projectile damage calculations in minecraft, I just threw random numbers in until it was balanced the way I wanted it. So I can’t exactly tell you how many hearts of damage a shot does, but it is at least 20, as that’s how many hearts a zombie has, and they can be killed in one hit. With the revolver and any gun firing buckshot, however, the shot may not be a one hit kill. Specifically, a bullet has a 1 in 4 chance of not being a one-hit kill. This was due to the revolver and buckshot being a tad OP.
