Assassin's Creed III is the first game in the series allows the player to finally use of proper firearms, in addiction to pick up enemy muskets. Its also the first game to show and allow to use firearms in the modern sections.


Braddock Pistol

A Braddock Pistol is available for use and is simply called "English Flintlock Pistol". According to the description it was made by a Spanish gunsmith named Gabbitas and has the initials "E.B." on it.

"Duck Foot" Flintlock Pistol

The "Duck Foot" Flintlock Pistol is a sidearm available in the game. Though real Duck Foot pistols usually had four barrels, there were also three barreled variants. According to the in game description it is popular with jail keepers (despite the ones at Bridewell Prison in New York never using them) and naval officers to discourage mutiny. Another version is available called the "Naval Duckfoot".

Harper's Ferry Flintlock

The Harper's Ferry Flintlock is the game's default pistol and is used by Connor, Haytham Kenway, British Officers, Sergeants, Charles Lee, Connor's ship crew, Templar agents, and the "Jäger". Connor has the option of carrying two of these by crafting a pistol sheath with two holsters. The Harper's Ferry Flintlock is anachronistic as the first model was not made until 1805.

Heckler & Koch Mark 23 Phase II Prototype

Daniel Cross's weapon of choice is a Heckler & Koch Mark 23 Phase II Prototype when Desmond retrieves a power cell in Manhattan. Later Cross also uses a suppressed Mark 23 in Brazil and Italy. The Mark 23 is also used by Abstergo guards and Desmond. Ironically, while its the first time in the series that this pistol is usable, its first appearance is in Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, albeit in an unusable form.

Pistolet modèle 1786

Double-barrelled turn-over flintlock pistol

The "Scottish Flintlock" is actually based on the Denix produced replica of the double-barrelled turn-over pistol crafted by William Bailes of London circa 1755.

Cannons are a common sight in the game seen in use by the British Army, the Continental Army, and the Crew of Connor's ship the Aquila. The cannons on the Aquila are operated by one crew member while the ones used by the Armies have 2-3 man crews. They can also fire Grapeshot and Chain-shot.
