[RPG] How is firearm damage calculated


Is the damage of firearms computed like other ranged weapon attacks? The attacker adds his Dexterity modifier to the damage?

Best Answer

Yes, you add your Dex mod to the damage die

Dungeon Master's Guide presents stat blocks and rules for firearms on pages 267 and 268. They are listed as Martial Ranged Weapons, and no special rules are given regarding damage calculations. Therefore the dexterity modifier is added to the damage just as with any other ranged weapon.
