The Flintlock Pistol or Old Gun is a weapon that was added in v0.49. It can be assembled by finding and crafting all 8 parts of the pistol. These parts can be found all over the Peninsula in caches that are underneath a rock which can be blown up with explosives. It uses old gun ammo, which can also be found on those locations or in other places on the peninsula including the cave system. The Flintlock Pistol is a one shot gun and must be reloaded after each shot. The reloading time takes about 3 to 4 seconds.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

As of v0.53c, after all caches are found and the gun is crafted, the parts still spawn in their respective location after loading a save. This allows you to craft an extra gun that you can place on a weapons rack for give to another player. You can only hold one flintlock pistol at a time.

Strength has no effect on the Flintlock Pistols damage. It will do the same damage whether your strength is 10 or 99.

Combat[edit | edit source]

As of v0.63 the pistol has an aim-down-sights system so it is easier to aim however before it could only be fired from the hip. Due to needing to reload from shot to shot, the pistol can be rather slow against packs of cannibals, particularly painteds. It is best for fighting 1-3 cannibals or 1 mutant at a time.
