The Flintlock Pistol, often simply referred to as Pistol or Flintlock, is a general-purpose weapon in Sea of Thieves.

Usage[]

The Flintlock Pistol fires a single shot effective at short to medium range. The Flintlock can fire a total of 5 shots before it has to be fully reloaded at an Ammo Chest or Ammo Pouch. It has more range and precision than the Blunderbuss, and also better close-range target acquisition than Eye of Reach, making it a well-rounded weapon. However, it lacks the high damage of both of its competitors. The Flintlock fires a fast-moving projectile in an arc, requiring players to account for bullet drop and velocity when firing at longer ranges. The main benefit of the Flintlock Pistol is its low reload time compared to other weapons and a steady accuracy when hip-firing. A single Flintlock shot does 55% of damage, taking just two hits to kill a player. A basic Skeleton takes just one shot to be killed, a Bounty Voyage or Skeleton Fort Skeleton 2-3 shots and an Athena's Fortune Voyage Skeleton 3-5 shots. A Sapphire Cursed Mermaid Statue takes 5 Pistol shots to kill.

Variants[]

All new players are equipped with a basic Sailor Pistol by default, other aesthetic versions are available for purchase at the Weaponsmith's Shop.

Tips[]

  • If timed correctly, one can aim at a specific section of the reload to be able to fire faster and with Aiming-Down-Sight's perfect accuracy. This is signified by a slight blurring of the edges of the screen.
