The Flintlock Staff is a Staff introduced in Kid Icarus: Uprising. It resembles a flintlock gun in appearance, hence the name. The Flintlock Staff appears to have been made out of wood and shares many other similarities with flintlock weapons. It has the most powerful attack in the game, with its maximum-range charge shot, and possesses one of the best ranges of all weapons. Its charged shots are also extremely fast. However, this weapon is exceptionally suited for ranged attacks as it possesses the weakest melee attack of any weapon. Its charge time is the longest of all weapons except most Clubs, and it has no homing ability.
