Arquebus is a primitive firearm that is the first step toward modern gunpowder weapons. It is the first rifle survivors can use in the game.
This is a cumbersome, unwieldy weapon - carrying it reduces the Walking Speed of a survivor by -10%.
In Judgment, an Arquebus is a Tier I weapon that Survivors can craft and use in combat.
- Despite the impact to walk speed and the slow attack speed, an Arquebus delivers more damage than any other Tier I weapon.
- Arquebus cannot be crafted - but they are a very good reason to specialize in rifles even in the early stages of the game.
- Relatively cheap, don't hesitate to buy them when visited by a merchant.
