      Can I post questions here? Under Double-Action weapon property, it states that creatures with Extra Attack or Multiattack do not suffer disadvantage on the second attack. Is that because they may use their Extra Attack to get off the second attack with no disadvantage? Or can they attack twice with it as an action, no disadvantage on the second attack, then attack twice again using their Extra Attack and still get no disadvantage on the second (now fourth) attack?

      The intent is that characters with Extra Attack get a second attack anyway, meaning that the Double-Action property doesn't do anything for them. They can Extra Attack as normal. The Double-Action property is mainly a boon to characters who don't "naturally" get an Extra Attack.

      Excellent, that's what I had assumed, but I wanted to clarify. I have a fighter in my group that uses guns and I know the question will come up once I introduce this weapon property. Thanks!
