|Three-Barrel Flintlock Pistol||+2||1d8||5/10||70 gp||4 lb||Firearm||Load Two Minor, Off-hand, Three Barrels, Powder Crit|
This specialty flintlock pistol has three barrels that can be fired individually or together.
- Three Barrels
A three-barrel flintlock pistol can be fired three times before it needs reloading. In addition, the wielder may fire all three barrels at once, giving the attack the Brutal 1 property: If the attack hits, re-roll any damage die that shows a 1.
- Load Two Minor
It takes a two minor action to reload a flintlock pistol: one to load the powder and one to load three balls. 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.
