Vlad the Impaler's weapons
David Baker: "The steel crossbow is so powerful it needed mechanical assistance to draw, and in trained hands, it is deadly accurate with a long range. The hand cannon was an early and very effective use of gun powder in the West. It was easy to use and delivered a great amount of force. It wasn’t the most accurate weapon, but when used in volley fire, it was very effective."
