Clarification Request: Air Cartridge Firing System


Pathfinder Second Edition General Discussion


Had some back and fourth about Air Cartridge Firing System and whether or not it replaces your normal loading mechanism with magazines that use pellets. It doesn't explicitly state it does, but I also don't see any examples of air pellets being sold in any way other than in magazines but then again I also don't see any examples of magazines other than those specifically labeled as "Magazine (Air Repeater)".

Any thoughts on this, or has Paizo written any clarification?


Firearms equipped with Air Cartridge Firing Systems don't fire pellets. They fire the same bullets the firearm usually fires. The only difference is that the bullets are propelled now by compressed air rather than black powder. This allows the firearm to be fired underwater, at the cost of a bit of range and the damage bonus from Kickback if your weapon has it.

It's basically a lower-level version of the Underwater Firing Mechanism, not an upgrade to turn any firearm into an Air Repeater.
