- The Flintlock Rifle is a great choice for the early game as long as you're hitting headshots.
- Due to the slow firerate this gun is not ideal when zombie groups become denser later in the game or in higher difficulties.
- It may be a good idea to not upgrade the Flintlock Rifle in order to save money for new guns as the Flintlock Rifle becomes obsolete rather quickly (day 4 on hard mode is when the gun stops one-shotting reds and greens).
- The Revolver may be a better choice as it has a faster fire rate and reload speed.
- The Flintlock Rifle has gained a negative stigma since it is commonly used as a first weapon for Piggy Bank newbies.
- However, it's probably the only choice for players of Impossible difficulty, since they have to fight off Berserkers.
- In Nightmare, it assists a load, but ain't necessary.
- When not aiming down sights, the Flintlock has the second highest recoil in the game at a staggering 75, only behind the M82 at 80 when it is unscoped and without its recoil reduction upgrade.
- This weapon counts as a Flintlock type weapon for the Trickster upgrade on the Cutlass.
