Title Pistols.png


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.

Game Play

In Pirates of the Caribbean, the pirate obtains their first single-shot flintlock pistol from Hector Barbossa on Devil's Anvil.

As per the Pirate's Code, it cannot be used against any human enemies, like the EITC and Navy, but can be used against everything else - including undead, ghosts, or fellow pirates in PvP.

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.

Other types of pistols and ammunition are available at any local gunsmith or may be found in loot drops.

Pistol Types

These pistols can fire a single, typically more powerful shot before having to be reloaded.
