An Imperial handgunner.

Handgunners are Imperial State Troops armed with handguns - black powder firearms which are often manufactured in Nuln.

Technologically, these weapons are quite sophisticated; perhaps as a result, they are less common in the poorer provinces of The Empire, where the difficulty of their manufacture limits the numbers in use. In such provinces, such as Stirland, the crossbow and the bow are more prevalent.

RThe process of firing and maintaining a handgun is complex and involved with Handgunners often shrouding it in mystique and ritual. The Empire’s simpler folk are frightened of blackpowder weapons but others note that Handgunners need only a few weeks training before taking the field as proof that the process is actually simple.[4a]

Handgunner sergeants often use an experimental weapon, such as the Hochland long rifle.

Notable

Quotes

They are unreliable, noisy, full of hot air, and they leave a foul smell behind them. And their guns aren’t much better..

~ Holger Kass, 1st Bögenhafen Halberdiers.[4a]
