Two-handed clockwork ranged weapon
This overlong smoothbore weapon is a precursor of the musket. It must be fired lying down, braced, or using a "fork" support. As you must stand up to load it, lying down to fire is generally impractical.
Most armies abandoned the arquebus quite early and settled for the more practical Musket. This weapon made a return in the middle east as the Jezail and in the pre-civil-war wild west as the Buffalo Rifle.
