These are the earliest form of personal firearm. Consisting of a rudimentary metal tube mounted on a wooden pole and awkwardly ignited, this basic design left little room for aiming. Causing more panic than actual damage, enemy troops are shaken by the noise and smoke made when firing. Given their short range, their firers need to be well armoured.
