Weapons are the primary methods of negotiating your way through the high seas of Abandon Ship.

Types of weapons[edit | edit source]

  • Deck guns are good long-range weapons for sniping distant targets, like enemy crewmen.
  • Broadside cannons are effective at dealing damage mid-range.
  • The mortar is another long range weapon, excellent at setting fire to the target ship.
