"Super Accuracy and Super Damage makes this slow reloading weapon very dangerous. Remember to go for Head Shots for bonus damage!"
— In-Game Description
Two flintlock pistols are available in Battlefield Heroes: the Royal ArmyJack's Cloudmaker and National ArmyHector's Hatred. Both weapons are statistically identical and are available for all classes. They were introduced on May 18, 2011 with the Buccaneers bundle.
Each pistol deals an extremely high damage output of 17 points of damage but only holds one round at a time. Damage is dramatically increased with headshots, dealing 60 points of damage per shot. This makes the weapon ideal for either weakening an opponent or picking off a weakened opponent.
