Flintlock Pistol (4e Equipment)
From D&D Wiki
Military Ranged Weapons
|Flintlock Pistol||+2||1d8||5/10||25 gp||3 lb||Firearm||Load Two Minor, Off-hand, Powder Crit|
The flintlock mechanism replaced earlier ignition systems such as the wheellock and matchlock. The flintlock pistol is smoothbore, short-ranged and often used as an adjunct to a sword.
- Load Two Minor
It takes a two minor action to reload a flintlock pistol: one to load the powder and one to load the ball. The Speed Loader feat reduces the reload time to one minor action.
The flintlock pistol is light enough that you can hold it and attack effectively with it while holding a weapon in your main hand. You can't attack with both weapons in the same turn, unless you have a power that lets you do so, but you can attack with either weapon.
- Powder Crit
The flintlock pistol deals more damage when you score a critical hit with it, though not as much as a High Crit weapon. It deals an extra 1 damage at 1st–10th levels, an extra 2 damage at 11th–20th levels, and an extra 3 damage at 21st–30th levels. This extra damage is in addition to any critical damage the weapon supplies if it is a magic weapon.
