[RPG] Can a Way Of The Sun Soul monk use Radiant Sun Bolt as the bonus attack for Martial Arts


Can you use Radiant Sun Bolt as your bonus attack for Martial Arts?

"When you use the Attack action with an unarmed strike or a monk weapon on your turn, you can make one unarmed strike as a bonus action."

For example, can I hit the guy then shoot a bolt at someone else?

Best Answer

No. By the rules, the Radiant Sun Bolt attack is a ranged spell attack, not an unarmed strike or monk weapon. You also can't replace one of your ki-fueled bolts with an unarmed attack.

That said, I don't see a big issue with letting it be used as if it was a monk weapon if your GM wants to house-rule it that way.
