During the March 18th item shop reset, an in-game message showed that a brand new weapon, the Flintlock, was set to release soon, most likely following the new update.
This new weapon was shown after the v8.10 patch and will have a high chance of being a single-shot high damage weapon.
As of now, we know the Flintlock is expected to have the following stats:
- Damage: 86
- Fire Rate: 0.33
- Magazine Size: 1
- Reload Time: 3.19
- Ammo Type: Heavy Bullets
These stats may obviously change once you find a different rarity, but so far this is how the gun will perform starting out.
