This is a Fusilier style for 5A.

A bushwacker is focused on ambushes, shooting a volley or two and, if this is not enough to end the fight, get out fast. Bushwackers fill the roles of guerillas, bandits, and hunters.

Greyhawk Bushwackers are rare. Fusiliers are still unusual and elite, there are simply not enough fusiliers to make them common as guerillas or bandits.

Subclass Features

Cunning Action

Starting at 3rd level, your quick thinking and agility allow you to move and act quickly. You can take the Dash or Disengage action as a bonus action.


At 3rd level when you choose this style, you learn Stealth. If you already know this skill, you learn Acrobatics, Athletics, Perception, or Survival instead.


At 6th level, when you make an attack against an opponent who is surprised or cannot see you, you add your devastation bonus to the attack. Even with an attack that is not a firearm, you still add your devastation bonus to the attack. If this is a firearm attack, you double your devastation bonus.


At 10th level you gain the ability to demolish things.

  • You can use Bushwacking against any unattended object or construction even when you are not hidden.
  • When making a Strength (Athletics) check to open, move, or destroy an object or construction, you have advantage.
  • You can take an action to use a firearm to destroy a know trap or lock within 10 feet using an attack roll as if it was Dexterity (Thief's Tools) check. On a success, the trap or lock is destroyed. If you fail this check against a trap, it triggers. If it fails against a lock, any attempt to use Thief's Tools on this lock suffers disadvantage until the lock is repaired or replaced.

Shoot and Scoot

At 15th level, when you use Stand and Deliver, your speed is not reduced. You can move before you attack and still gain advantage.
