    Doesn't really seem like a weapon worth one of the 32 slots we have

    I'm not redeeming unless they tell me it's going to be upgraded or we're getting more space...

    It's not the best sword, but the Point Blank is actually pretty good, it KOed a 45 Mollusk when I used it.

    Disney has been giving out free unlimited access to new members. This is a way to get their interest going i'm assuming this is to help get some new members get interested in playing Pirates Online.

    Agreed. Why can't they release Blackbeard's clothing or a level 30 sword that's famed or legendary?! :(

    Nice video John :) Still doesn't make me want it - but I can see its appeal to lower levels, definitely

    Is this some kind of trick again? :confused: Kind of like the sword of Triton ... I've sold mine to make room, then I "frantically" re-redeemed it last Sunday since it had something to do with QAR (luckily I could still redeem it). But if this pistol has nothing to do with any quest or story, I'd eventually sell it.

    I think this is only a show and tell item because Jack Sparrow uses the same type of pistol apparently.

    it clearly never mentions that and so we can not know for sure but it is assumed as i also assumed it or else why would it be a code item however as already stated it could just be something to appeal to the new guys ive seen alot of them around lately a bunch swarmed me in svs the other day and by making this item unlimited access it allows them a better chance at more money i believe that this is all adds but this game needs new players and maybe just maybe with more money the updates could go faster and more could be coming (highly unlikely considering the past) but because it has not mentioned anything about it being used for something else it has a good chance of just being an add and nothing else though this makes all of us higher lvl ppl with the better weapons look as if we have just been cheated because this item is useless to us
