Description

Flak ammunition is a type of short-fused bomb, specifically designed to explode in midair. Flak ammunition is packed with steel balls and black powder, and may be fired from a bombard or catapult. When flak explodes, it deals 4d6 points of piercing and bludgeoning damage to all creatures and objects within 40 feet of the target square. A flak bomb must reach an altitude of at least 50 feet to function properly. If flak ammunition impacts anything before it reaches this altitude, the bomb deals 1d6 points of bludgeoning damage and fails to explode.
