The Flintlock Pistol is a Weapon in the Primitive+-DLC of ARK: Survival Evolved. It deals 160 damage to players, but 112 damage to dinosaurs since they only take 70% of the damage from guns.
The flintlock pistol is suitable for any kind of opponent, but it has only 1 shot, making it less effective against tough or fast opponents with more than 200 health such as an Allosaurus, Rex, or high-level Raptor or Terror Bird. The flintlock pistol has 60 durability, meaning you can use it 300 times. It can deal 48,000 ranged damage per 300 shots to players. The pistol will deal 33,600 ranged damage per 300 shots to dinosaurs, because of the damage reduction.
It can be used to deal good damage to creatures under teir 5 dinos or dinos below giganotosaurus.
The animation is currently broken.
It used to not have any color at all but now the handle can be colored.
