German term or phrase:Schusswaffe
This is from an overview of the world of Kryson to accompany the novel, explaining the history, language, culture etc.
"Schusswaffe" is given in Leo as "firearm" but that doesn't seem right for archery. Is there another general term for "shooting weapons" in English? Thanks.
"Die gebräuchlichsten Waffen für den Kampf sind Hieb-, Stich- und Schlagwaffen. Daneben werden auf die Entfernung diverse Wurf- und **Schusswaffen** benutzt.
Der Bogen ist die am weitesten verbreitete **Schusswaffe.** "
