Details
Type Weapon

The Pistol is a general-purpose firearm weapon in Sea of Thieves.

Usage[edit | edit source]

The Flintlock Pistol fires a single shot effective at short to medium range. Every Flintlock has a total of 5 shots before it has to be fully reloaded at an Ammo Chest or Armoury. Compared to other firearms, it has more range and precision than the Blunderbuss, but less range and precision than the Eye of Reach, making it a jack of all trades weapon. The Flintlock shoots its bullets at an arc, requiring adjusted aiming, when shooting targets in range. 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 about 50% of damage, taking just two hits to kill a Player Pirate. 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[edit | edit source]
