Summary0001112: goblin swordsman shows up equipped with <iron bow>
DescriptionAs the summary said, I've had a goblin swordsman (part of an ambush, not an actual invasion) show up with an iron bow (and clad in leather, not metal like the other swordsmen). Maybe this is just a misnaming of the goblin, it's definitely not a problem that all goblin swordsmen (the other ones showed up using longswords, scimitars etc.) or bowmen (had several using bows and named accordingly) have.
Additional InformationSave is at [^]

The goblin in question is "bosa lozngom"

Well spotted. Bows use the sword skill when used as a melee weapon, so probably the game is equipping the swordsmen with any weapon that uses that skill without checking whether it's ranged or not.

It's possible said goblin was an actual civ member from worldgen and actually has more Swordsman skill than Bowman skill, but checking that would require using some special utilities.

Assuming Quietust is right.
