The medieval period was a scary time to be a soldier. You had to fight when your lord told you to fight and kill your enemies in close, bloody, hand-to-hand combat.
But I guarantee the medieval period would have been much scarier if soldiers were given handguns.
That’s exactly what the Medieval Handguns Mod does to Minecraft: it adds a lot of medieval handguns to the game. There are five normal handguns, nine improved handguns, and five special types of handguns that have been added to the game through this mod.
Some of the handguns fire small bullets that will cause just a heart or two of damage to enemy mobs. Other handguns fire massive projectiles which can blast apart mountains or create devastating fires across the land.
Here are all of the handguns that have been added to the game through this mod:
The wooden handguns are slow and have a long cooldown time (22 milliseconds), while the diamond handguns are fast and have a short cooldown time (30 milliseconds).
Improved handgun abilities:
-Powerful shot: Consumes two arrows per shot and deals 2.5x damage
-Fast shot: Shortens cooldown time to 30 milliseconds
-Strong shot: Deals 1.5x as much damage as normal
-Affluent shot: 50% chance for the handgun not to consume any arrows
-Rapid shot: Reduces cooldown time to 18 milliseconds
-Critical shot: All of the shots fired deal critical damage-Resistant Shot: Increases durability to 150
-Knockback shot: All shots have a higher knockback effect
-Fire shot: Your shots will set mobs and players on fire
-Explosive shot handgun: No cooldown and shots explode when they hit blocks
-Teleport shot handgun: No cooldown and shots teleport you to wherever the shot lands
-Lightning shot handgun: No cooldown and there’s a 50% chance of lightning striking the block on which the shot lands
-Rain shot handgun: No cooldown and the handgun fires six arrows per shot; each arrow has a 20% chance of being a fire shot and a 20% chance of being a critical shot
-Special shot handgun: No cooldown and features three different shooting modes which will create a block, create a sand pyramid, or destroy a block. Players select which shooting mode they would like to use before they fire.
As you’ve probably guessed, most medieval land barons didn’t have access to this kind of weaponry. If they did, the world would be a drastically different place. To download this mod today, follow the instructions below.
