The Fortnite v8.11 patch is now live on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, apart from a bunch of new adjustments, Epic also brings players a new weapon into the fold that supports some pirate themes that players have seen in season 8. Here are things you need to know about the new Flint-Knock Pistol in Fortnite.

Description of the Fortnite Flint-Knock Pistol

Flint-Knock Pistol is available in Common and Uncommon rarities and can only be found from floor loot. About its attributes, the gun will not only repel the shooter but will also repel the target if it is close enough. Also, the closer to the target, the farther they are hit by the successful hit. To stop the knockback from taking place towards the shooter, although, players can crouch to negate the impact.

Fortnite Battle Royale's take on flintlock pistols with the Flint-Knock Pistol provides the gun close range damage of 86/90, however, it has a significant volume of damage falloff when applied. One particular drawback in the weapon is that players should reload immediately after every shot, with there being a 3 second reload time. Finally, players should take attention to the Heavy Ammo to keep it supplied with bullets. The following stats revealed from another website:
