Mephitic Arquebus in Salt and Sanctuary is a Pistol type weapon.


A stygian matchlock embellished with skeletal fittings encasing the entirety of its stock and barrel. Mummified scraps of rotted flesh still cling to the unsanitary bones, exuding a noxious miasma which permeates any ammunition fired from this ghastly weapon with a most odious toxin. Clearly devised by an evil mind, or else merely one teetering on the brink of abject insanity.

Notes and Tips:

  • At 50 Dexterity this weapon has an Attack of 42.2 / 42.2 at tier VII.
  • Like other gun weapons, this weapon has 1.5x damage multiplier on its attacks, giving it effectively 50% higher AR than it shows.
  • Using a weapon buff, such as a Blessed Page, will buff both your main hand melee weapon and offhand gun, despite the gun not gaining the visual effect of the buff.
  • The weapon's physical damage type is split between 50% Slash and 50% Strike damage, but equiping a main hand weapon that has an Extra Blades or Extra Blunt special property will change the offhand gun's damage split to 75%/25% or 25%/75%. Using an Extra Blunt weapon this way can be very useful for Dexterity builds, which don't have a lot of options for Strike damage weapons.
