I just received a pair of the Drakefire Pistols, but they are obscured by a red cancel icon and I can't equip them. I'm sure that the dwarf was able to equip them in the first Vermintide, and I don't see anything telling me why I can't equip them now except for the red text on the item name and Ironbreaker.
Ironbreaker is the key here.
Baradin has 3 classes:
- Ranger Veteran (the default)
- Ironbreaker (accessible starting at level 7)
- Slayer (accessible starting at level 12)
This particular weapon can only be equipped by the Ironbreaker class.
