A pistol, or flintlock as called in the Golden Age of Piracy is, in effect, a Handheld Cannon. Like the musket, it uses gunpowder to hurl projectiles at its target. With its shorter barrel, the pistol is more portable and more easily concealed than a musket, bayonet, or blunderbuss, but has only medium range and is less powerful.
Pistols with 2, 3 or 4 barrels are listed as Repeater Pistols.
The pistol is highly favored by pirates in PvP. Most pirates with a high lvl gunning skill or mastered gunners are the fastest to earn top ranks in PvP. Pistols can also help to hit targets in PvP against enemies who use glitches or dolls to battle.
These pistols can fire a single, typically more powerful shot before having to be reloaded.
Pirates use their Gun skill when loading and firing a pistol. Using this skill earns experience points to increase their abilities or learn new ones.
