Flint-Knock Pistol
Category Battle Royale Weapons
Introduced Patch 8.11
Vaulted Patch 10.00

Flint-Knock Pistol is a pistol in Battle Royale. It is available in Common and Uncommon variants. It uses Heavy Bullets, has a head shot multiplier of x2.0, and lacks first shot accuracy. The Flint-Knock Pistol's singular inaccurate bullet does extremely high damage and knocks back the wielder and target of its attack, doing extraordinary material damage but suffering very badly at long range in terms of damage. It can only be found from floor loot, but can be found from chests in the Team Rumble LTM.

The Flint-Knock Postol was vaulted on Patch 10.00, making it currently only available in Playground and Creative. It was vaulted to reduce the number of mobility items in game.

Flint-Knock has a chance to appear among all weapons in the following circumstances:

Strategy[edit | edit source]

  • Crouching prevents players from being affected by the gun's knockback.
  • The Flint-Knock has horrendous damage dropoff. Only use it at close range.
  • The Flint-Knock can save someone from taking fall damage if they shoot at the floor before impact. It is advised to do this at a diagonal angle to minimize the risk of fall damage.
  • The Flint-Knock is nothing to scoff at, clocking in at a whopping 180 damage on a head shot. It can be used to follow up a shotgun for an effective finishing gun, or to replace a shotgun and be followed by an SMG. It is advised to crouch in either case in order to not accidentally displace yourself in a close range fight.
  • It does enough material damage to leave a fully built wooden wall on twelce hitpoints, and enough to take out any other fully built wooden piece.
  • Use the knockback to quickly gain high ground in a fight.
  • Use the knockback to knock enemies off a tall place, but be careful not to knock yourself off.
  • It has one bullet and a lengthy reload time of 3 seconds. You will typically only get one use of this pistol per fight unless there is cover that can be used to reload.

Changes[edit | edit source]

Patch 10.00 (August 1, 2019)

Weapons + Items

  • Vaulted
    • Flint-Knock Pistol
    • Over time, we have added many mobility options, both itemized and map-based. We feel that Season X is better experienced with a reduction in mobility. As with all changes, we’ll keep a close eye on how this affects the player experience.

    • The closer you are to the target, the farther they get knocked away.
    • The shooter can crouch to prevent the knockback.
  • Close range damage: 86/90
    • Significant damage falloff.
  • Must reload after each shot.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Flint-Knock Pistol's name is actually a pun on the type of handgun it is based on, a flintlock hand cannon.
  • The Flint-Knock Pistol is the first Battle Royale weapon to include knockback, which affects the player firing the weapon and the person being shot at.
  • The Flint-Knock Pistol was teased in the Season 8 loading screen.
  • The Flint-Knock Pistol looks like Save the World's Duelist flintlock weapon. The difference between the two is that the Duelist has a metal barrel and grayish color, unlike the Flint-Knock Pistol's wood texture.
    • The weapon also look exactly like Save the World's Jack's Revenge.

The Flint-Knock Pistol is the second pistol to use Heavy Bullets, the first being the Hand Cannon
