Firearm Specialist Feat 5E

Hello adventurers of all shapes and sizes! Welcome to another episode of our feat series. Today we’re going to be taking a look at a newer feat created by the team at critical role. This one is the firearm specialist feat 5e it is completely optional DMs don’t have to use it, if you plan on using it please run it past your dm cuz it’s it kind of changes the whole landscape of the world to be honest with you if firearms are involved. In any case let’s take a look at the description here. So we know exactly what we’re talking about.


You are adept at using guns effectively. You gain proficiency with Firearms. If you roll a misfire on an attack with a firearm, you can use your reaction to roll a d20. If the number rolled is higher than the weapon’s misfire score, the firearm does not misfire. You cannot use this feature of this feat again until you complete a short or long rest. When you use the Attack action and attack with a one-handed weapon, you can use a bonus action to attack with a loaded firearm with the light property you are holding.

This is how to get firearm proficiency 5e! Very cool stuff! I really like the use of wording, if you’re not familiar with the misfire effect…it’s actually gone over in the gunslinger archetype over under the fighter. Essentially if you roll below a certain point the gun will misfire and you’ll have to use an action to get it set up again, so it’s pretty helpful really good. Let’s go through a quick walkthrough. It just so we can explain it a little bit better though.


You can remake a misfire role once per short or long rest. That’s basically how it ends up working out and then after attacking with a one-handed weapon. This is best firearm specialist feat 5e because of these advantages, You can use a bonus action to attack with a loaded firearm with the light property. So it’s very cool, very nice…i really like how this plays out on thematic and i think it’d be great to play kind of like a rapscallion type figure maybe take a couple levels in rogue just to make it even more elusive. I just think it’s really cool!

Personal Thoughts

In terms of my personal thoughts on it, outside of the fact that it’s cool, i don’t know if i’d allow this in my game reason being that firearms kind of mess with the whole world i have established. Maybe in a ravnica setting it can make sense maybe in a more modern world or a steampunky kind of setting it could work out really well but i would pick this morsel for flavor over actual mechanics personally.

It’s not a bad feat to pick but it’s bane priority there being the misfire re roll is really only away to combat a negative quality of the actual gunslinger class as a whole so i don’t know.


Feel free to give me your thoughts and impressions down beneath in the comment section whether or not you’d allow in your game i’m just really curious to hear what you have to say if you have any cool stories involving firearms put them down there as well and thank you so much i hope you have a wonderful day and as always happy adventuring.
