The Musket is a Weapon in the Primitive+-DLC of ARK: Survival Evolved.
The Musket is a reskinned Longneck Rifle, but the texture is quite different. Does quite a lot of damage, and can easily one-shot people without armor equipped. It can one-shot some small dinos, but do not try to use that against a Rex. However, in P+ it's the most powerful weapon available for survivors. While the Crossbow isn't useful from far away, with the Musket you can easily hit targets at a great distance. Although you may need several shots the Musket allows you to solo kill even high level Alpha Raptors and Carnos, as well as other predators like a Therizinosaur next to your base. Just make sure you're on a safe position while shooting. 10-20 shots may be needed for a low level Alpha Raptor. High level ones could need up to 50, so always be sure to have enough patrons. For lone survivors or small tribes ammunition is quite expensive so better don't waste your patrons on weak targets.
