Oh, That Wonderful Musket

I don't know about anyone else, but I am really digging on this Musket. It's a great weapon for self-defense. I won't be taking it to clear any gang hideouts, but it auto-aims with unprecedented range, and packs a hell of whallop. An absolutely great point-and-click answer to a shoot-it-if-it-moves type player.

 

I heard we're losing fireworks. We lost the Thompson. Please someone tell me we get to keep this wonderful gun. If not, then let's sing its praises here, while we have it.

We did not lose the thompson,my gold musket looks cool and is fun to watch the reload animation. Yes good power and range but overall a novelty as enemy armor has been increased and it takes a head shot for reliable one shot kills. Attempting to clear a gang attack with only using the musket is a fun challenge.

I'll 2x check my for my Thompson once I'm done cleaning the house and binge-watching MST3K.

 

I'm 98% that I, at least, lost mine.

Its actually a really good gun (but its lock on range is pitiful) because it only takes one shot to the head to kill and that can happen at any range.

I do enjoy the musket, mostly for the range and the one-shot kill stopping power. But there have been some "OH sh*t!!" moments where I hit the player and they keep coming, meanwhile I'm trying to reload.

Musket can be real fun. I like the challenge of trying to use it in missions.

The Thompson I lost for one character, but still have it for my other character. I emailed R* about it, but haven't received a fix for it yet. I really like the thompson. It's devastating at medium-close range. I've taken out plenty autoshotty combat roll monkey mask bastards with it to great effect.

I can totally see where if you had some support to cover you while you reloaded this could be a genuinely tactically advantageous gun. I haven't DM'ed with it yet, because I don't really DM much at all. I race. So I don't spend a lot on weapons, I spend on cars. I don't have an assault shottie (or a pump shottie) or a sniper. It's totally filled a niche for my arsenal. I took down some jerk who came after me in a buzzard with it the other day. :)

It's basically just a f*cking sniper without the scope, pretty much the same damage.

Can't autotarget w/ the sniper. :)

I currently can't hit a barn door with the musket. I will definitely be practicing more with this weapon after all the hype on this weapon.

If youre having trouble with the reload time switch to a knife then quickly switch back too you musket.

 

It skips the reloading sequence effectively turning you into a god smiting people.
