Is your character the sort of guys who simply loves his bows and arrows? is he stealth archer from good outdated skyrim and does he simply love hitting arduous and loves that feeling the place nobody can actually get away from him? if that appears like your character then let me let you know this feat is a should your construct. At this time we’re going to be having a look at sharpshooter 5e feat it’s discovered within the gamers handbook and as one of many coolest feats on the market on your archer. With that hyped-up introduction out of the way in which let’s check out the outline right here.


Firstly technically talking there is no such thing as a prerequisite for this feat. Al although it’s positively a factor that you just gotta have a ranged weapon with you. So bear that in thoughts. The outline reads as adopted.

As a Sharpshooter in DnD 5E you’ve been mastered ranged weapons and likewise in a position to make the pictures which others may discover an unattainable. As of this feat you in a position to acquire the under advantages:

  • Attacking on the lengthy vary doesn’t impose the drawback on any of your ranged weapon assault rolls.
  • Mainly, your ranged weapon assaults can ignore half and three-quarters cowl.
  • However earlier than you do an assault with the ranged weapon which you’re proficient with, you’ll be able to simply selected to take a -5 penalty for the precise assault roll. Suppose, that assault hits, then you’ll be able to add +10 to the assault’s harm.

For sure this can be a very excellent feat. Let’s check out the walkthrough and sort of break this down just a little bit.


So firstly {that a} lengthy vary and now not equals drawback portion. What that refers to is if you happen to take a look at your whole ranged weapons there’s the primary quantity/bigger quantity. The bigger quantity on the finish of that slash there may be how lengthy your most ranges however so as to hit that you’ve an obstacle imposed on the rest i’d the primary quantity. That is sensible. So that is tremendous highly effective because it primarily helps you to use your weapon to its most functionality with zero downside to it.

The second portion, you get to disregard half and three quarters cowl. I discover this to be overwhelmingly highly effective. I’ve gone up towards NPC’s who’ve this feat and let me let you know it isn’t enjoyable to have the ability to get attacked even with 3/4 cowl. It’s fairly frankly ridiculous if you happen to ask me.

The final portion is similar to nice weapons grasp if you happen to keep in mind that. That’s you are taking a minus 5 penalty to accuracy for a +10 improve to break. That is tremendous cool if comboed with the precise construct. That being mentioned, let’s check out my private ideas on this.


When it comes to who advantages absolutely the most! i need to say elven assassins. For a pair causes. Firstly if you happen to take the elven accuracy feat and even luck in all honesty both a kind of would work out nice for you. You possibly can actually reap the benefits of that +10 to break and since a process assassins get an automated crit on their first strike on a shock spherical.

For sure that is completely damaged. So you could have a flat of 20 harm added to your already fairly spectacular ranged weapon assault plus your modifier plus your proficiency plus all that juicy sneak assault harm. That’s a completely damaged first strike and with elven accuracy within the luck feat the chances of you truly lacking which are virtually nil. It’s extremely devastating, exterior of that i’m certain the ranger may discover a whole lot of good makes use of for this.

There aren’t actually a complete lot of courses specializing in ranged weapons like you will get a whole lot of them the concentrate on ranged weapons i assume however they’re normally higher fitted to different duties. So i need to say the rogue and the ranger are most likely the 2 courses we’re gonna profit from this essentially the most.


In any case, if in case you have any concepts, any feedback and loopy makes use of, any mixtures, any construct concepts please let me know down within the feedback under as all of you could have any cool tales. I actually recognize studying them i do know everybody else checking this text does as properly. That being mentioned thanks a lot guys, i’m trying ahead to seeing you within the subsequent episode. Have an ideal day and as all the time a contented adventuring.
