Bazookas are usually larger handguns with medium range and quite a wide radius of destruction. In the pirate world of One Piece, it is of course logical that this weapon is very popular. Especially the members of the navy (e.g. unnamed naval officers) often make use of this very effective weapon against masses of enemies. However, other organizations and gangs such as the Franky Family are also largely equipped with bazookas. Besides swords and pistols, they are the most commonly used weapon of all.
