Use this basic Range Weapon on opponents who won't come close enough for you to hit them with your Cutlass. Practice with Jack the Monkey to sharpen your marksmanship.

Pistol 1

Game Tip: Most enemies will follow you, so move backwards as you shoot, keeping your target within the red target area. This is especially handy when you have only a one– or two–shot pistol.

Pistol 3
Remember the Pirate Code The Pirate Code strictly states that guns may only be used against the undead (Jolly Roger's Skeletons as well as those unholy creatures he has cursed), and must never be used against people –– be they other Pirates, townsfolk, the Royal Navy, or the East India Trading Company Black Guard.

Not surprisingly, there is an exception to this rule. Pirates become undead during Pirate versus Pirate (PVP) skirmishes. At these times, feel free to blast away all you like.
Pistol 4
Remember the Pirate Code

This long barreled weapon is the precursor to the rifle. Used wisely, you'll have Undead running scared due to its increased range and accuracy. Luckily for Pirates, this weapon has been designed to use the same ammunition as the Pistol.


This muzzle-loading firearm is now yours provided you can loot it from the right enemy. Standard ammunition will also work with this weapon. So next time you're taking over one of Jolly Roger's flagships, introduce the rival ship's crew to the Blunderbuss. Helping Pirates overtake enemy ships since the 17th Century.
