    posted a message on Matchlock Guns [1.12.2] [WIP] - Matchlocks, Flintlocks, Wheellocks, Cannons and more

    A gun mod about early gun technology.

    In this mod, you reload your guns by crafting them with gunpowder and rounds (Legacy system). There are also cannons.


    -Matchlock Arquebus

    -Matchlock Pistol

    -Matchlock Pepperbox

    -Matchlock Blunderbuss (Not yet in the newest version)

    -Flintlock Pistol

    -Flintlock Musket

    -Flintlock Revolver

    -Flintlock Revolver Musket

    -Flintlock Rifle

    -Double Barreled Flintlock Rifle

    -Volley gun

    -Wheellock Pistol

    -Wheellock Musket

    -Wheellock Repeater

    -Blunt Gun (Not yet in the newest version)

    -Breechloaded Caplock Rifle


    For up to guaranteed up to date recipes and info, please refer to the wiki - Note that the reloading system has changed since update 5a, guides can be found in the combat tab in creative.


    Most guns are a simple right click to fire (Note that the revolvers have a cooldown)

    The matchlock guns however require you to first right click with a flint and steel in your offhand, then de-equip that flint and steel, and then right click with the gun again to fire
