"The flintlock supports his allies with magickally charged cannon actions."
—Description

Flintlock is a job in Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift, usable by Moogles only. Like the Fusilier, they can attack enemies from far away. Flintlocks use magic cannons which have a wide range, and are primarily used for support abilities such as Cure Cannon, which heals the unit as well as removes any status effects. However, they are also capable of offensive abilities such as Ether Boost. Unlike the similar Cannoneer job, Flintlocks have to use their Prime ability before they can use any of their other abilities, slowing them down and making them vulnerable to units that can dispel their Prime before they get a chance to use it, particularly by Werewolves. Though underused compared to the Cannoneer and slightly hard to utilize effectively due to the need to use Prime before other Ballistics abilities, Flintlocks can bestow buffs like Protect, Shell, and Regen and can even teleport a target to a random tile, making up for their Priming delay.

Flintlock is a Nebulan "double" Targetmaster partnered with Silencer and the Autobot Landfill

Troubled youth discovers guns are the answer

Flintlock was born in the wrong century on Nebulos. What could be worse for a young man-of-action than an era of peaceful enlightenment? Flintlock became a chronic rebel, backing causes anti-social, anti-government and just plain rude. Joining the Autobots gave Flintlock an outlet that constructively channeled his aggression. Thus a troubled youth transformed into one of the Autobots' most disciplined soldiers.

Flintlock turns into a heat-seeking stress pistol which can induces metal fatigue severe enough to fracture steel. As a "double" Targetmaster, Flintlock is able to combine with Silencer to increase the power of his own weapon, or boost the power of Silencer's proton rifle.

He also seems to have shoulder-mounted missile launchers.

Flintlock and Silencer try to force the slovenly Landfill to clean regularly, but they avoid him when he forgets, which can leave them all vulnerable in the event of a surprise attack.

Fiction

Marvel Comics Continuity

Landfill wielded Flintlock and Silencer in "double weapon" mode during a series of fuel raids on Cybertron alongside the recently revived Grimlock, Jazz and Bumblebee. When Hook Line and Sinker attacked some months later, Flintlock, Silencer and the other Nebulan "double" Targetmasters appeared absent.

Generation One

  • Landfill with Flintlock and Silencer (Double Targetmaster, 1988)
Flintlock, like all the "double" Targetmaster Nebulans, is one of the smallest and least complicated Transformers. Fold the barrel away, and stand him up, and can also combine with Silencer to form a rifle. He was released with the Autobot Landfill in 1988. No version of this character or mold was released in Japan.

From Traveller Wiki - Science-Fiction Adventure in the Far future

Flintlock is the general term for any firearm based on the flintlock mechanism. Introduced about TL-3, the flintlock rapidly replaced earlier firearm-ignition technologies, such as the matchlock and wheellock mechanisms. It continues to be in common use for over until mid TL-4 replaced by percussion cap and, later, cartridge-based systems. While technologically obsolete, flintlock firearms have enjoyed a renaissance among black powder shooting enthusiasts and many fine flintlock rifles and pistols are still being made today.

The flintlock mechanism produces sparks when a piece of flint, held in the jaws of a spring-loaded hammer or "cock" strikes the hardened steel face of the "frizzen", knocking the frizzen forward to uncover a small pan of gunpowder beneath the frizzen. The resulting spark ignites the powder in the pan and this flame is transferred through a small hole to ignite the main powder charge inside the barrel. Under damp or rainy conditions, the gunpowder in the pan could get wet and the gun would be unable to fire.

Because of the time needed to reload (the fastest experts could reload a smooth-bore muzzle-loading musket in about fifteen seconds), these weapons were sometimes produced with two, three, four or more barrels; however, multiple-barreled weapons were never very popular. The designs tended to be expensive to make and failure-prone. It was frequently cost-effective and more reliable to simply carry multiple single-shot weapons instead.
