TOPIC: Can Pistol Shield be used with a two-handed weapon?

Can Pistol Shield be used with a two-handed weapon? 1 year 2 weeks ago #1

Can Pistol Shield be used with a two-handed Sunshot or Blunder weapon?

Pistol Shield (from TokenDB): Adds +2 to AC. While the wielder of this shield is actively using a Sunshot or Blunder weapon, the total AC bonus granted by this item is +3.

I'm assuming the answer is no. However based on the ability description, I don't understand how it is that much different than the description for Archer's Buckler. Both tokens show the offhand icon so it seems like they shouldn't be usable with two-handed weapons. I'm curious if there is a special ranged shield rule I don't know about.

Archer's Buckler (from TokenDB): Adds +1 to AC when used with a two-handed ranged weapon. It may not be used with any melee weapon nor with a one-handed ranged weapon.

Thanks for your thoughts!

I would say no. If there weren't any one handed sunshot or blunder weapons then I'd be scratching my head but there are.

Archer's Buckler is an exception to the rule that you can't equip in ranged offhand if using two-handed ranged weapon.

Pistol Shield isn't an exception. Can run it with Mighty Sling or whatever just like any shield with a 1h ranged weapon (assuming class can use shields). It just gets better with your Blunder Pipes, Sunshot Pistols, and Sunshot Sidearms.
