Role Description:

The Gunsmith may each night pass a gun to another player in the game. Guns received from the Gunsmith can only be fired during day phases and have a 50% chance of revealing the shooter.


This is always a town-aligned role. The Gunsmith cannot pass guns to himself. The player receiving the gun will be informed of this at the beginning of the next day phase, but they will not learn who they received it from. They will also not learn if they received a fake gun (see Fabricator). A different, equally popular, version of this role is a Gunsmith that passes out regular guns that can only be used and resolved normally at night without any chance or risk of the shooter being revealed if they use the gun.
